(MENAFN - #Kuwait
News Agency (KUNA)) Israeli security forces on Friday used tear gas, rubber bullets and police dogs to attack a protest march in Al-Nabi Saleh village in the East Bank, a Palestinian group said.
Dozens of protesters including three press people and foreign sympathizers were wounded.
Similar protests in Bal'in and Al-Ma'sra towns were quelled by the Israeli forces.
The Israeli forces used police dogs to prevent the protesters from reaching their confiscated land.
The Palestinian Grassroots Anti-Apartheid Wall Campan in Bal'in said the protesters raised photos of the administrative prisoners and some of them put on detainee clothes as a sign of solidarity with the prisoners who have been on a mass hunger strike since April 24 in protest against the maltreatment by the Israeli prison authorities.
The Friday marches are staged by the Palestinian villagers on a weekly basis in protest against the confiscation of their land for the construction of the Apartheid Wall in the West Bank, and in solidarity with the Palestinian hunger striking prisoners at Israeli jails.
