On Friday, Israeli soldiers attacked the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, causing dozens of injuries.
Morad Eshteiwi, the media spokesperson of the Popular Committee in Kufur Qaddoum, said the Palestinians marched from the center of the town, carrying Palestinian flags, and chanting against the seriously escalating Israeli violations.
Eshteiwi added that the soldiers attacked the procession before several young men hurled stones at the soldiers.
The army shot three young men with rubber-coated steel bullets and caused dozens of residents to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
Eshteiwi said today’s procession came to condemn the escalating Israeli violations in Al-Aqsa Mosque, in occupied Jerusalem, and the worshipers in the holy sites, and serious escalation against the Palestinians.
He added that the Palestinians continue their resistance and struggle until liberation and independence despite the ongoing Israeli escalation and crimes across occupied Palestine.
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.
