Israeli occupation forces injured three Palestinians today as they attacked dozens of activists protesting in the village of Kafr Qaddum, near the city of Qalqilia in the occupied West Bank, against the Israeli colonial settlements.
Morad Shtewi, coordinator of the popular resistance in the village, said Israeli soldiers fired rubber-coated rounds and teargas at the protesters, injuring three of them and causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.
He said all of the injured were treated at the scene by local medics.
Soldiers also raided several houses in the village, smashed their windows and mounted their rooftops to fire at civilians, added Shtewi.
For years, the village of Kafr Qaddum has been at the heart of a national campaign of protest against the Israeli colonial settlement activities in the occupied West Bank. Almost every other day, clashes erupt between Palestinian protesters and Israeli occupation forces in the village.Source : Wafa
