QALQILIA, Friday, November 26, 2021 (WAFA) – At least six Palestinians were injured by Israeli occupation forces today during the weekly protest against Israeli settlement construction, which takes place on a weekly basis in the village of Kafr Qaddum in the northern West Bank.
Witnesses told WAFA that Israeli soldiers attacked the protesters by rubber-coated rounds and teargas, injuring six of them and causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.
Some of the injured were treated at the scene while others were moved to hospital for treatment.
For years, villagers from Kafr Qaddum and neighboring villages have been protesting every Friday against illegal Israeli settlements, and to call on Israeli authorities to reopen the village’s main road, which has been sealed off by the occupation authorities since 2002.
In the meantime, dozens of Palestinian civilians sustained suffocation from gas inhalation during a protest against Israeli colonial settlement construction in the village of Beit Dajan, in the West Bank province of Nablus.
