IOF quells Kafr Qaddum weekly march in Qalqilya

Kafr Qaddum in Qalqilya

Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) quelled on Friday the anti-settlement weekly march in Kafr Qaddum town in Qalqilya. The peaceful march also demands the opening of the street which has been closed by the IOF for over 14 years.

Coordinator of the popular resistance in the town, Murad Shteiwi, said that large numbers of IOF soldiers and Special Forces showered the participants with rubber bullets and tear gas canisters. No injuries were reported.

He pointed out that the participants foiled an ambush that was set up by IOF troops to arrest youths beneath the olive trees near the closed street. They used stones in order to confront the Israeli soldiers and managed to make them retreat without arresting anybody.
