Qalilya (QNN)- Azzoun, a village in western Qalqilya, has been seeing weekly confrontations with Israeli forces, leaving dozens of injuries among locals. Israeli forces use bullets and tear gas and sound bombs to repress the residents of the village.
Yesterday, confrontations erupted as usual in the village. However, young men from the village thought about decreasing the number of injuries this week.
Pictures from yesterday’s confrontations show young men carrying armor and trying to protect themselves from the Israeli bullets.
