At least four Palestinians were wounded on Friday when the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) violently quelled peaceful protests in Qalqilya and Ramallah in the West Bank.
In Qalqilya three Palestinian demonstrators were injured when the IOF attacked the weekly march in Kafr Qaddum with rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas grenades.
Activist Murad Shtewi said that a Jewish peace activist was among the injured.
Every Friday the residents of Kafr Qaddum take to the streets to protest the ongoing settlement construction on Palestinian land and to call for opening the village’s main road which has been closed by the IOF for 16 years.
Meanwhile, a Palestinian youth was injured by IOF live ammunition during confrontations in Deir Nizam village northwest of Ramallah City.
Local sources said that violent clashes flared up in Deir Nizam after the IOF abruptly raided the village.
