Israeli soldiers injured, Friday, two Palestinians during the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia.
Morad Eshteiwi, the media coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall & Colonies in Kufur Qaddoum, stated that the Palestinians marched from the center of the village while chanting for liberation and independence, and the removal of the illegal Annexation Wall and colonies.
He said that the soldiers fired several live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades, shooting two with rubber-coated steel bullets and causing dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
Eshteiwi added that the soldiers installed sandhills on a road leading to Palestinian olive orchards to prevent the Palestinians from reaching them.
The Palestinians have been holding weekly processions for the last eighteen years, demanding the army to reopen the village’s main road which was blockaded to allow easy access to the illegal colonizers, driving to and from Kedumim illegal colony, which was built on stolen Palestinian lands.
