Occupation forces injure four Palestinians in Kafr Qaddum

QALQILIA, Friday, July 24, 2020 (WAFA) – At least four Palestinians were injured by Israeli occupation forces today during the weekly protest against Israeli settlements, which takes place every Friday 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, told WAFA that Israeli soldiers attacked the protesters by live gunfire, rubber-coated rounds, and teargas, injuring two by gunfire and two others after they fell on the ground while being chased by the soldiers.

Other protesters also sustained suffocation from gas inhalation, and were treated at the scene of the clashes.

Palestinians have been organizing a weekly protest in the village every Friday demanding the occupation authorities to reopen the village's main road, shut down since 2002, as well as demanding an end to the Israeli colonial settlement policy.
