Israeli soldiers injured, Friday, several Palestinians during the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum town, east of Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
The Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall & Colonies in Kufur Qaddoum stated that the soldiers fired many rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at the protesters.
It added that a young man was shot with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the head, and was rushed to a hospital in Qalqilia.
Many Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, cuts, and bruises, before receiving the needed treatment by medics at the scene, without the need for hospitalization.
The Palestinians in Kufur Qaddoum said the popular resistance will continue until liberation, and will not be intimidated by the escalating Israeli violations.
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.
In related news, the soldiers abducted, on Friday evening, a young man identified as Mohammad Khader Abu al-Hummus, during a nonviolent activity against the Israeli attempts to remove and displace the Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, in occupied Jerusalem.
Local sources said Mohammad is from the al-‘Isawiya town, in Jerusalem.
