At least 15 Palestinians were injured by Israeli occupation forces today during the weekly protest against Israeli settlements, which takes place every week in the village of Kafr Qaddum in the northern West Bank, local sources said.
Morad Shtewi, coordinator of the popular resistance in the village, told WAFA that Israeli occupation soldiers attacked the protesters by rubber-coated rounds and teargas, injuring 15 of them and causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.
Four of the injured were moved to hospital for treatment, while the others were treated at the scene by local medics.
For years, villagers from Kafr Qaddum and neighboring villages have been protesting every Friday against Israeli settlements, and to call on Israeli occupation authorities to reopen the village’s main road, which has been sealed off by the occupation authorities since 2002.
