At least three Palestinians were injured with rubber-coated metal rounds today, by Israeli occupation forces, during the weekly anti-settlements protest in the village of Kafr Qaddoum, northern West Bank, local WAFA sources said.

Israeli soldiers attacked the protesters with rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas, injuring  three protesters and causing many cases of suffocation. The injured were treated on the scene by Palestinian Red Cross medics.

Almost every Friday, villagers from Kafr Qaddoum, and neighboring villages, organize a nonviolent protest against illegal Israeli settlements, calling on Israeli authorities to reopen the village’s main road, which has been sealed by the occupation since 2002.
