QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- One man was struck in the shoulder by a tear-gas canister and dozens suffered from excessive tear-gas inhalation after Israeli forces raided the village of Kafr Qaddum following a protest.

Witnesses said Israeli forces fired tear gas into residential areas in the village as clashes broke out following the village's weekly protest, hitting one man and injuring dozens, including a 2-month-old infant.

Photographer Jafar Shtayyah, meanwhile, was struck with a tear-gas canister fired by Israeli forces in the shoulder.

Coordinator for the local popular resistance committee Murad Shtewi said that Israeli forces fired over 10 tear-gas canisters toward his house, causing his family to suffer from the tear-gas inhalation.

Among those affected by the use of excessive tear gas was his 2-month old daughter, Bisan.

An Israeli spokeswoman said she was not familiar with the incident.

Protests are held every Friday in Kafr Qaddum against Israel's closure of a main road linking the village to its nearest city, Nablus. The road has been closed since 2000.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

The most terrorist army at work. I hope they are proud. I also hope that one day they don't sleep because of their nightmares (like many IDF soldiers committed suicide because of their demons).

Roll on the end of this round of peace talks, The world has been watching Israel, and just how it behaves The only way Palestine can win back there freedom is in court. Israel needs to leave the west bank and Gaza to save themselves War crimes are a plenty, and will be investigated . Then both Israel , and its people will be held to account . Ooo how the mighty will fall ,

To Hop #2: 'Sarah #1 - go ahead and hope. People need hope. Even people like you.' If by that you mean it's futile to hope you have a conscience, that would indeed be for you to say.

To Maureen #3: '...! ....! ...!' Why are you getting excited? What would be news would be if anyone connected with Zionism ever displayed any honesty, compassion, or integrity. Observing the reverse is hardly surprising.

To #1 and #3. Plain and simple. Israel has a state and palestinian have absolutely nothing. They can protest and protest and only they suffer and no one else. They will not get injured if they just stay home and enjoy a good life that they have. And #1 and #3 your comments are absolutely useless and you just wasting time. Israel is here to stay and palestinians are not like it or not

To j #7: ' Israel is here to stay and palestinians are not like it or not.' Based on previous experience, the reverse seems more likely. Jews were in Palestine before, but over time they became...Palestinians. The same process should recur, one way or another. Of course any Zionists who object will be free to leave.
