Palestinians injured during rallies for prisoners

Some 843 prisoners are still on hunger strike.

The Eritrean-Dutch doctor has visited a number of previous strikers and explained what happens physiologically to people consuming only water and some salt.

Palestinian witnesses say an Israeli settler opened fire on a crowd of Palestinian protesters after his vehicle was attacked by demonstrators Thursday.

Families of detainees involved in a hunger strike shut down the United Nations office in Ramallah, West Bank, on Wednesday, a Jordanian news agency reported.

Dozens of Palestinians were hurt Friday in the occupied West Bank and Gaza during clashes with Israeli forces after marches backing hunger-striking prisoners, the Palestine Red Crescent Society said. About 25 demonstrators were wounded, Palestinian officials said.

Meanwhile, deadly confrontations between Israeli security forces, Israeli settlers and furious Palestinians protesting the situation of the hunger-strikers continued to inflame the West Bank.

A video of another settler handing out chocolates to "celebrate" the death of a young Palestinian man only served to exacerbate anger.

Pax Christi International, together with its member organisations and partners, is deeply concerned about the situation of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons - especially those who have been on a hunger strike for one month and whose situation is deteriorating.

Earlier in the week the Israeli navy shot a Palestinian fisherman dead off the coast of Gaza as he fished, claiming he posed a security threat.

"Such measures, including conditioning EU aid on a rejection of violence would be in ideal alignment with the current European Parliament's "call for effective use of existing European Union leverage and instruments towards both parties in order to facilitate peace efforts", she said".
