Hundreds of Palestinians rallied in the village of Kafr Qaddum in Qalqilya City on Friday to protest against the settlements. They also urged the Emirati and Bahraini people to reject the normalization deals reached between their governments and the Israeli regime.
On September 15, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed US-brokered normalization agreements with Israel at the White House — a move that was condemned by the Palestinian government and people as a betrayal of their cause.
Israeli troops fired rubber-coated metal bullets, sound bombs and tear gas canisters at the protesters in Kafr Qaddum, leaving seven Palestinians, including a journalist, injured. Dozens of others suffered breathing problems because of inhaling the tear gas.
Palestinian people also gathered in Khlet Hassan district in the city of Salfit to protest against the settlements.
They also condemned the UAE and Bahrain for attempting to normalize relations with Tel Aviv, stressing that the Palestinian people would continue to defend their land.
In the district of Bab Al Zawia in al-Khalil (Hebron) City, a number of Palestinians suffered breathing problems due to the tear gas fired by Israeli forces, who also used stun bullets and sound bombs against the demonstrators.
Similar clashes also took place between Israeli forces and Palestinians in the village of Asira al-Qibliya in Nablus. A number of Palestinians were hit by bullets and suffered breathing problems during the clashes.
The clashes occurred when Israeli forces and settlers attacked an event organized by residents and activists to till lands at risk of being seized by Israeli authorities.
