Israeli soldiers injure two Palestinians in Kafr Qaddum

QALQILIA, Friday, June 2, 2023 (WAFA) – Two Palestinians were injured by gunfire and many others suffocated from teargas today as Israeli occupation forces attacked the weekly anti-occupation protest in the town of Kafr Qaddum, in the northern West Bank province of Qalqilia.

Morad Shtewi, a local activist, told WAFA that Israeli occupation soldiers attacked the protesters with rubber-coated rounds and teargas, injuring at least two protesters and causing dozens of others to suffocate from gas inhalation.

All of the injured were treated at the scene of the confrontations.

For years, villagers from Kafr Qaddum and neighboring villages have been protesting every Friday against illegal Israeli settlements, and calling on Israeli authorities to reopen the village’s main road, which has been sealed off by the occupation authorities since 2002.
