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.

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".
