Israeli soldiers invaded, Friday, the town of Kufur Qaddoum, in the northern West Bank district if Qalqilia, and assaulted the weekly protest, wounding two Palestinians, and causing many others to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

The protest started from the center of Kufur Qaddoum, in participation with many Israeli and international solidarity activists.

Morad Eshteiwy, the media coordinator of the Popular Committee in Kufur Qaddoum, said the soldiers used excessive force against the protesters, and fired rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

Eshteiwy added that a young man was shot with a gas bomb in his head, and suffered a moderate injury, before Palestinian medics moved him to Rafidia hospital, near Nablus.

Another young man was shot with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the leg and received treatment by field medics, without the need for hospitalization.

The medics also provided treatment to many Palestinians who suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Eshteiwy also said that the soldiers sprayed many homes with wastewater mixed with chemicals, while an Israeli military helicopter flew overhead and filmed the protesters.

Video of the Week New Clashes Erupt Between Israeli Security Forces, Muslim Worshippers

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police




The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives. http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.802141
