QALQILIA, Saturday, May 14, 2022 (WAFA) – At least three Palestinian youth were injured today by Israeli forces’ rubber-coated steel bullets during clashes that broke out in the village of Kafr Qaddoum to the east of Qalqilia, according to eyewitnesses.
Sources told WAFA that clashes broke out following an Israeli military raid into the village of Kafr Qaddoum, during which forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets, stun grenades, and tear gas canisters at the village residents, shooting and injuring at least three youth.
Dozens of others suffocate due to tear gas inhalation.
According to the Israeli information center for human rights in the occupied territories, B’Tselem “Israel’s control is a regular fixture in the lives of all Palestinians in the Occupied Territories, who are subjected to a daily routine of overt or implicit state violence by Israel.”
“Israel’s systemic and systematic resort to lethal force against Palestinians is to be framed within the broader context of its institutionalized apartheid regime of systematic racial oppression and domination over the Palestinian people, as enshrined under Article 7(2)(h) of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, and the 1973 Apartheid Convention.” The Ramallah-based Palestinian human rights organization, Al-Haq.
