Hundreds of Palestinians took to the streets in several West Bank cities to demonstrate against the death of Palestinian hunger striker Khader Adnan while in Israeli prison, according to different reports.
Palestinians in Ramallah took to the city center to voice their outrage at the passing of Adnan, 44.
Khader Adnad had been on a hunger strike for 86 days as a protest of his imprisonment without charge.
At the rally, Adnan’s picture and the Palestinian flag were raised in a show of support for the Palestinian freedom fighters who have been imprisoned in Israeli prisons.
The Israeli government, particularly the racist Minister of National Security Itamar Ben Gvir, was held accountable for Adnan’s passing, as orders had been issued to not give sustenance or supplements to any Palestinian detainee who partook in a hunger strike.
Rallies took place in Nablus, Bethlehem, Hebron, Tulkarm, and Arraba (Adnan’s hometown near Jenin) while confrontations occurred at points of contact with Israeli occupation forces north of Ramallah, in the ancient part of Hebron, close to Beit Ummar, al-Ram, not far from Jerusalem, Nabi Saleh, nearby Ramallah, Kufr al-Labbad near Tulkarm, and in Qalqilya.
Israeli forces assaulted the demonstrators by releasing tear gas and shooting rubber bullets at them, resulting in the injury of multiple Palestinians.
