Attack dogs against unarmed Palestinians in Kufr Qaddoum and breaking a journalist's camera in Al-Ma'asara

It is yet another Friday where demonstrations get brutally attacked by Israel’s military in the occupied West Bank. In today’s demonstration in Kufr Qaddoum, Israeli soldiers released military hounds to attack unarmed Palestinian protesters. One dog bit a Palestinian activist and didn’t let go of his hand for several minutes, even when the dog’s handler ordered the dog to let go. The injured Palestinian, Ahmad Shtewi, was arrested by Israeli soldiers even when he was clearly in need of immediate medical attention.

Yesterday was another violent Friday in the village of Nabi Saleh as the weekly protests against settlement expansion continues. As always, the demonstration was met with tear gas, disgusting skunk chemicals and rubber-coated metal bullets. Disregarding cases of suffocation, 20 injuries were reported.
