QALQILIA, Friday, June 18, 2021 (WAFA) – Several Palestinians were injured by Israeli occupation forces today during the weekly protest against Israeli settlement construction 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 soldiers attacked the protesters by rubber-coated rounds and teargas, injuring two of them and causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.
All of the wounded were treated at the scene by local medics.
Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces shut down with cement cubes the main entrance to the town of Al-Ram, to the north of Jerusalem. The town is a neighbourhood of Jerusalem, but is located on the West Bank side of the Israeli segregation barrier.
Soldiers also fired teargas canisters at Palestinian civilians at the entrance to the town, causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.
