RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) and Ofer prison guards used force to disperse a peaceful rally by relatives of Palestinian prisoners held in that notorious jail on Sunday.

Hundreds of Palestinians staged a sit-in before the military jail in which Israel is holding around one thousand Palestinian prisoners demanding their release.

The participants hoisted Palestinian flags and photos of their relatives in the rally organized to mark the Palestinian prisoner’s day.

The IOF soldiers and prison guards engaged in fistfights with the demonstrators, two of whom were hurt in their eyes as a result of the use of sprays of unknown material against them while two others were arrested for attempting to climb the prison’s wall to put a Palestinian flag on it.
