A Palestinian boy on Saturday evening suffered a serious bullet injury in the leg when the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) violently attacked a peaceful march in support of the Aqsa Mosque in Kafr Qaddum town near Qalqiliya.

Popular resistance activist Murad Ashtiwi reported that 17-year-old Amjad Abu Khaled was shot by an Israeli soldier in one of his legs, which caused him a femur fracture, adding that the boy was rushed to Rafidia hospital for treatment.

Ashtiwi explained that hundreds of Palestinian young men rallied in Kafr Qaddum to protest Israel's attempts to divide the Aqsa Mosque temporally and spatially before they marched to an area near the illegal settlement of Kedumim, where Israeli soldiers fired a hail of tear gas grenades and bullets at them.

In another incident, a horde of Jewish settlers on the evening of the same day closed the main road to Yasuf town, northeast of Salfit city, with barriers and embarked on attacking passing Palestinian vehicles with stones.

A local source from the town told Quds Press that Israeli troops arrived to the scene and provided protection for settlers from Taffuh settlement, which was built illegally on Palestinian lands south of Nablus.
