QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians, including a 10-year-old boy, were injured by live fire and rubber-coated steel bullets during a weekly march in the Qalqiliya village of Kafr Qaddum, medics said Friday.

Ahmad Daas, 10, was reportedly shot in the leg by live bullets while at a relative's home as clashes broke out with Israeli forces.

Mahmoud Gazi, 30, was injured by live fire and photojournalist Akram Darawsheh was hit by rubber-coated steel bullets as Israeli forces suppressed marchers.

Israeli soldiers fired tear gas canisters and skunk water at residents, with local youths responding by throwing rocks.

Protests are held every Friday in Kafr Qaddum against Israel's closure of a main road linking the village to its nearest city, Nablus, as well as against the Israeli occupation more generally.
