Israeli forces injure one Palestinian in Kafr Qaddum

QALQILIA, Israeli forces on Friday injured at least one Palestinian protester after attacking the weekly anti-settlements protest in the village of Kafr Qaddum, near Qalqilia city in the northern West Bank, local sources said.

Morad Shtewi, coordinator of the popular resistance in the village, said Israeli soldiers attacked the protesters by rubber-coated rounds, injuring one of them with a rubber-coated round in his foot and causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.

Almost every Friday, villagers from Kafr Qaddum and neighboring villages organize a nonviolent protest against illegal Israeli settlements, and to call on Israeli authorities to reopen the village’s main road, which has been sealed by the occupation authorities for 15 years.
