Israeli forces injured three participants with rubber-coated steel bullets and caused dozens of others to suffocate from tear gas.
For many years, villagers from Kafr Qaddum and neighboring villages have been protesting every Friday against illegal Israeli settlements, as well as to call on Israeli authorities to reopen the village’s main road, which has been sealed off by the occupation authorities since 2002.
