Fifteen Palestinian youths were injured by rubber-coated metal bullets, and dozens were suffocated by tear gas during clashes with the Israeli occupation forces in Kafr Qaddum, near the city of Nablus in the northern West Bank.
Local sources reported that clashes erupted in the village after the start of the weekly peaceful march, when Israeli soldiers fired metal bullets, stun grenades and gas and 4 young men to the hospital.
The march, which is being held this week, came to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Intifada, a rejection of normalization, and an affirmation of the continuation of popular resistance in light of the increasing violations of repression and abuse against the villagers.
The coordinator of the Popular Resistance in Kafr Qaddum, Murad Shteiwi, said that about a thousand people participated in the demonstration today, including leaders from the PLO factions, on the occasion of the commemoration of the anniversary of the second Al-Aqsa Intifada.
The village of Kafr Qaddum and other villages in the West Bank are witnessing weekly rallies condemning settlements and protesting the confiscation of their lands in favor of settlement expansion.
