Occupation forces injure 11 Palestinians in Kafr Qaddum

QALQILIA, Friday, July 29, 2022 (WAFA) – At least 11 Palestinians were injured by Israeli occupation forces today during the weekly protest against Israeli settlement construction and expansion in the village of Kafr Qaddum, in the West Bank province of Qalqilia, local sources said.

Morad Shtewi, a local anti-occupation activist, told WAFA that Israeli occupation soldiers attacked the protesters with rubber-coated rounds and tear gas canisters, injuring 11 of them by rubber-coated rounds and causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.

All of the injured protesters were treated at the scene of the clashes.

Meantime, minor injuries were reported among Palestinian anti-occupation protesters as Israeli occupation forces attacked similar protests in the villages of Beita and Beit Dajan, in Nablus province.

For many years, villagers from Kafr Qaddum and neighboring villages have been holding weekly protests every Friday against illegal Israeli settlement construction.

More than 650,000 Israeli settlers live in Jewish-only settlements across the occupied Palestinian Territories in violation of international law.
