QALQILIA, Saturday, October 17, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces injured three Palestinians today as the former attacked dozens of activists protesting in the village of Kafr Qaddum, near the city of Qalqilia in the occupied West Bank, against the Israeli colonial settlement project.
Morad Shtewi, coordinator of the popular resistance in the village, said Israeli soldiers fired rubber-coated rounds and teargas at the protesters, injuring three of them and causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation. He said one of the wounded was moved to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
For years, the village of Kafr Qaddum has been at the heart of a national campaign protesting against the Israeli colonial settlement activities in the occupied West Bank. Almost every day, clashes erupt in the village with Israeli occupation forces during protests against the Israeli settlements.
