Three sustain gunshot injuries as Israeli forces quell rally in northern West Bank

QALQILIYA, Friday, February 17, 2023 (WAFA) – Three people today sustained gunshot injuries as Israeli forces quelled an anti-settlement rally in Kafr Qaddum town, east of Qalqiliya, according to a media activist.

Murad Ishteiwi said that heavily-armed Israeli soldiers opened fire towards the participants in the weekly Friday anti-settlement rally, hitting two Palestinians and an international solidarity activist by rubber-coated steel bullets and causing dozens to suffocate from tear gas.

All the suffocation cases were treated at the scene.

Participants in the rally also called for re-opening the town’s road that has been blocked for 19 years.
