100 protest against arrest of Shallit deal prisoner

Some 100 people are demonstrating in front of the Ayalon Prison in protest of the incarceration of Samer al-Issawi, who was released as part of the Shalit prisoner swap deal and is now on a hunger strike.

 

The demonstrators claim the arrest is politically motivated and that Issawi's life is in danger. Large police and Border Guard forces are keeping the order in the area. (Raanan Ben-Zur)
