Kufr Qaddum

11 December 2014

Kufr Qaddum is a Palestinian village located 16 kilometers west of Nablus in the Occupied West Bank. Israel has seized large swaths of the land of Kufr Qaddum to build illegal Israeli settlements as well as closed the main road to the village, causing residents to travel three times the distance to the nearest city.

In 2011, the residents to Kufr Qaddum started weekly demonstrations in protest of the continuous violations and to demand their road be re-opened. They are attacked, beaten, arrested and shot at by the Israeli Occupying Forces. This is their story.
