Five Palestinians, including journalist, injured by Israeli gunfire by Qalqilya

QALQILYA, Friday, August 26, 2022 (WAFA) – Five Palestinians were Friday injured by Israeli gunfire 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.

The sources said that Israeli soldiers attack the protest and fired rubber-coated steel bullets, injuring five Palestinians, including Anal al-Jadaa', Palestine TV journalist.

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.
