QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was injured by live fire during a weekly march in the Qalqiliya village of Kafr Qaddum on Friday, witnesses said.

Bilal Fathi Jumaa, 25, was shot in the right leg by Israeli soldiers during a weekly protest against the closure of the village's entrance since 2000.

He was taken to hospital for treatment.

Israeli forces used tear-gas, live fire and skunk water to disperse the demonstrators.

A media spokesman for the village, Khaldun Abu Khalid, said the marches started three years ago and will not be stopped by Israeli violence against demonstrators.
