The protesters blocked the entrance to the store, waved Palestinian flags and carried signs calling for a boycott of settlement goods.

Video: Regavim movement

The Palestinians claimed that the forces exercised excessive force and arrested four people. It was further claimed that two Palestinians were rushed to hospital after being hurt in the clashes.

 

Abir Kopti, an activist with the Palestinian popular committees, told Ynet that Wednesday's protest was part of a line of steps recently taken. The first was last week's blocking of route 443.

 

According to Kopti, the activists are planning additional protests in the future. "This time we chose the Rami Levy store because we want to send a message to boycott the occupation and its products. As long as the Palestinians get no justice, settlers and Israelis will not lead normal lives."

 

She added that the protest was also meant to send a message to the Palestinian people not to shop in Rami Levy. It should be noted that the retail chain has two branches in the West Bank that also serve Palestinians.

 

The Regavim movement said in response, "This is a provocation by Palestinians and anarchists who are trying to fan the flames in Judea and Samaria.

 

"The protest in Rami Lavy, which employs and serves both Jews and Arabs, exposed the simple truth – that they are acting against co-existence. We ask that they take a look at what is going on in neighboring Syria which they hold so dear to their hearts."
