Palestinians injured during rallies for prisoners

Palestinians gather to withdraw money from ATM machines in Gaza City Thursday

The prisoners, jailed for offenses linked to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, seek better conditions, including more family visits.

Without water, a person, especially one already weakened by more than a month without food, is unlikely to survive more than a week.

After 31 days, the mass Palestinian hunger strike continues, as prisoners reach critical point. It noted that "Israelis can travel freely on these roads". Yousef Shapira made his comments in his official annual report, in which he criticised the "lack of development of infrastructure of checkpoints between Israel and the West Bank".

An Israeli settler celebrated the killing of a Palestinian by another settler today by handing out chocolates to passing Israeli vehicles.

Hundreds of Palestinians flocked to the border between Israel and Gaza on Friday afternoon to participate in a demonstration that quickly escalated when multiple participants started igniting tires and hurling rocks at IDF soldiers deployed in the area.

The ongoing hunger strike staged by approximately 1,000 Palestinians in Israeli jails this week entered its second month.

And we killed a Palestinian vandal today. Several hundred Palestinians are being held without charges or trial, in so-called administrative detention.

A Palestinian youth was shot and injured with a rubber-coated steel bullet, on Friday, and others suffocated from tear gas inhalation when Israeli forces attacked Palestinians marching in Hebron city and the nearby Beit Ummar town in solidarity with the hunger strikers, said local sources.

The Israeli settler who shot and wounded a Palestinian man who threw rocks at his vehicle was detained, but was released after proving it was in self-defense.

Just hours after Shamsa's death, thousands took to the streets of his home village, Beita-a renowned center of the liberation struggle-in a militant funeral march.
