At least seven Palestinians, including a journalist, were injured by rubber-coated rounds today as Israeli occupation forces attacked the weekly anti-settlements protest in the village of Kafr Qaddum, near Qalqilia city in the northern West Bank, according to local sources.
Morad Shtewi, coordinator of the popular resistance in the village, said Israeli soldiers fired live bullets, rubber-coated rounds and teargas canisters towards the protesters, injuring seven of them, including a journalist identified as Nedal Shtayyeh.
Several other protesters suffocated from teargas inhalation.
For many years, Palestinians have been organizing weekly protests in the village of Kafr Qaddum to demonstrate against Israel’s continued closure of the village’s main entrance, as well against the growing colonial Israeli settlement activities.
