Five Palestinians, Including Journalist Injured at Kufur Qaddoum

A photojournalist was among the five Palestinians injured, on Friday, when Israeli soldiers opened fire at protestors, during the weekly protest in the village of Kufur Qaddoum in the northern West Bank, according to local sources.

Morad Eshteiwi, Coordinator for the popular resistance against the Israeli Apartheid Wall, told Palestinian WAFA News Agency that Israeli soldiers responded to the peaceful protest by firing rubber-coated steel rounds and tear-gas canisters.

Nedal Shtayyeh, a photojournalist with the Chinese Xinhua News Agency was among the five injured, all of whom were treated in the field.

The village of Kufur Qaddoum has been staging demonstrations for many years to express their objection to the Apartheid Wall, illegal settlements and the closure of the road connecting the village to Nablus City.
