QALQILIA, Saturday, January 15, 2020 (WAFA) - At least three Palestinians, including a paramedic, were injured today as Israeli occupation forces attacked dozens of protesters taking part in a vigil against Israeli settlements, in the village of Kafr Qaddum near the city of Qalqilia in the occupied West Bank, according to witnesses.
Israeli soldiers reportedly fired rubber-coated rounds and teargas at the protesters to disperse them, injuring three of them, including a paramedic, by rubber-coated bullets. Many other sustained suffocation from gas inhalation.
All of the injured were treated at the scene of the protest.
Almost every week, Palestinians hold a protest in the village in condemnation of the colonial Israeli settlement enterprise and to demand the occupation authorities to reopen the village's main road, shut down by Israel since 2002.
