Eight people today sustained gunshot injuries as Israeli forces quelled an anti-settlement rally in Kafr Qaddum town, east of Qalqiliya, according to local sources.
They said that heavily-armed Israeli soldiers opened fire towards the participants in the weekly Friday anti-settlement rally, causing gunshot injuries to eight and leading to dozens of suffocation cases.
All the suffocation cases were treated at the scene while the gunshot casualties were hospitalized.
Participants in the rally also called for re-opening the town’s road that has been blocked for 19 years.
