Hundreds of Palestinians marched through different West Bank cities and refugee camps in the early hours of Tuesday morning, in solidarity with the besieged city of Nablus by the Israeli occupation.
On Monday, the Palestinian resistance group Lion’s Den “Areen Al-Usood” called for solidarity marches across the West Bank and Gaza Strip, in part to protest an Israeli decision earlier this week to deny entry permits into Palestinian lands occupied in 1948 for 164 family members of Palestinian freedom fighters.
Many people heeded the call for demonstrations, which lasted from after midnight until the early morning hours. There were demonstrations in Nablus, Hawara, Jenin and its adjacent refugee camp, in the East Jerusalem neighborhoods of Silwan and Shoafat, as well as in Hebron, Tul Karm, Qalqilya and Ramallah.
Meanwhile, large numbers of Israeli occupation forces had entered the Shoafat refugee camp on arrest operations. Multiple Palestinians including journalists were arrested, according to reports.
