Palestinians close shops, rally for hunger-striking prisoners

Published: 06.08.14, 16:37 / Israel News

Shops were shuttered in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Sunday in solidarity with nearly 300 Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike against Israeli detention without trial.


Black-and-white flags bearing slogans such as "Freedom for Prisoners" and "Chains must be broken" flew in the streets of Ramallah, the
Palestinian commercial capital. In Hebron, also in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, dozens of Palestinian protesters marched in the streets in support of the hunger strikers.


The hunger strike was begun on April 24 by a group of 120 prisoners held under what Israel terms "administrative detention" - or incarceration without trial of Palestinians suspected of security offences. (Reuters)
