The demonstration was held in support of Samer Issawi, a Palestinian political prisoner who has been on hunger strike for over 250 days in Israeli administrative detention without charge. Israeli soldiers also confiscated two other internationals’ passports at the non-violent demonstration. Soldiers harassed the small group of demonstrators, restricting their movement by surrounding and pushing them. One soldier threw a sound bomb at a lone demonstrator as he started walking away from the demonstration.
