IMEMC News: Thursday, Israeli soldiers attacked students holding a nonviolent protest in solidarity with the Palestinian political prisoners, in the center of Hebron city, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Local sources said the protest was organized by the Hebron Defense Committee, and started from the al-Jaza’er School, heading towards the Old City.
The protest was almost instantly attacked by Israeli soldiers who fired gas bombs, and violently attacked several Palestinians with batons, causing various injuries.


The soldiers also chased the protesters in an attempt to kidnap them, and closed several roads in the city.
The army also attacked a nonviolent protest in the Old City of Hebron, and kidnapped Fahmi Shahin, member of the Political Bureau of the leftist Palestinian People Party (PPP).

Resident Imad Abu Shamsiyya, a volunteer with the Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories (B’Tselem), stated that the soldiers attacked nonviolent protesters, and fired several gas bombs at them causing dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
The protests were held in solidarity with hunger striking Palestinian detainees, who are holding an open-ended hunger strike, and most of them started their strike 42 days ago, and are facing serious health complications.

The detainees are demanding an end to Israel’s illegitimate arbitrary detention policy, indefinitely holding hundreds of detainees without charges or trial.

They are also demanding decent living conditions, proper medical attention especially to detainees suffering from cancer, heart, liver and kidney diseases and various other serious illnesses, in addition to right to education, and an end to ongoing attacks against them and their visiting family members.

Administrative detainees are demanding their right to have their day in court, as they are held without charges or trial, in direct violation of all related international human rights treaties.
