Palestinian activist Munher Ameera told IMEMC that the soldiers violently attacked the procession, and sealed the junction that leads to road 60 which links Gush Etzion settlement Bloc, with Jerusalem.

The activity was organized the Palestinian Prisoner Society and some civil society organizations in the Bethlehem area.

The attack led to multiple injuries among the Palestinians as many have been treated for the effects of teargas inhalation, while many others have been struck with clubs and batons carried by the army.

Abu Atwan said that the procession started from Bab AZ-Zqaaq in Bethlehem city, they drove many cars to the An-Nashash area in Al-Khader where they marched on foot carrying Palestinian flags, posters, pictures of hunger striking detainees, and chanted slogans for liberation and independence.
