January 30, 2022

West Bank - The Israeli occupation forces injured a number of Palestinians, yesterday evening, with bullets and tear gas, during confrontations in the village of "Kafr Qaddoum", east of Qalqilya, after the suppression of the weekly anti-settlement march.

Eyewitnesses reported that confrontations arose after the weekly march from Omar Ibn Al-Khattab Mosque in the center of the village, towards the closed western entrance, during which the occupation forces extensively fired metal bullets and poison gas canisters at them, injuring two.

Every Friday and Saturday, residents of the village of "Kafr Qaddoum" set off on marches demanding the opening of the village street, which was closed by the Israeli occupation forces during the Second (Al-Aqsa) Intifada in 2003.
