Israeli soldiers injured, Friday, six Palestinians during the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia.

Media sources said the soldiers shot six young men with rubber-coated steel bullets and caused many Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

The Palestinians marched from the center of the town, carrying Palestinian flags and against the Israeli occupation and its colonialist activities, before the soldiers attacked them with gas bombs, concussion grenades, rubber-coated steel bullets, and live rounds.

Several youngsters hurled stones at the invading soldiers and burnt car tires; the army also tried to abduct some protesters after ambushing them.

The Palestinians have been holding weekly processions in Kufur Qaddoum for the last eighteen years, demanding the army to reopen the village’s main road the soldiers blockaded to allow easy access to the illegal colonizers driving to and from Kedumim illegal colony built on stolen Palestinian lands.
