Dozens injured by Israeli forces in weekly Kafr Qaddum march

QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinian residents, including journalists, were injured as Israeli forces suppressed the weekly Kafr Qaddum march in the northern West Bank district of Qalqiliya, on Friday afternoon.

Local sources confirmed that dozens of Palestinians suffered various injuries, including suffocation from tear-gas inhalation.

No detentions were reported yet.

Residents of Kafr Qaddum began staging weekly protests in 2011 against Israeli land confiscations, as well as the closure of the village's southern road by Israeli forces. The road, which has been closed for 15 years, is the main route to the nearby city of Nablus, the nearest economic center.

The Israeli army blocked off the road after expanding the illegal Israeli settlement of Kedumim in 2003, forcing village residents to take a bypass road in order to travel to Nablus, which has extended the travel time to Nablus from 15 minutes to 40 minutes, according to Israeli rights group B'Tselem.
