images_News_2013_04_17_activists_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Dozens of popular resistance activists cut through a barbed wire surrounding the Israeli Ofer jail to the west of Ramallah on Wednesday morning.

Activists, who were celebrating the Palestinian prisoner’s day, marched from Rafat village, which overlooks the jail, to Ofer where more than 800 Palestinians are incarcerated.

They succeeded in cutting more than 30 meters of the barbed wire before arrival of the Israeli occupation forces, who fired stun grenades at the activists to prevent them from reaching the other electronic fence surrounding the jail.

Abdullah Abu Rahme, the coordinator of the anti-wall committee in Bilin village, told the soldiers at the barbed wire, “You are terrorists, and the detainees will win their freedom soon”.

Abu Rahme later said in a press release that cutting the barbed wire was to express solidarity with the prisoners and in protest against occupation.
