Pro-Palestine Activists rally in Berlin in Support of Palestinian Detainees

Af.M | DOP -

Pro-Palestine Activists organized a demonstration in Berlin on Saturday 4 February 2023 in support of the Palestinian detainees held in Israeli occupation jails.

The demonstration took place after Israeli occupation forces stormed several sections in different jails and transferred many Palestinian detainees at random, prevented visits, and placed a large number of prisoners in solitary confinement.

Israeli forces also stormed the rooms of the female prisoners in “Damon Prison” and assaulted them with beatings and tear gas. Palestinian prisoners in various prisons responded by declaring a state of alert, which was followed by negotiations with the Israeli prison administration, in which the Palestinian prisoners’ movement secured victory and the administration retracted its escalatory measures.

The demonstration’s call stated that “the Israeli occupation killed 30 Palestinians since the beginning of the year 2023, at a time when the occupation government is taking escalators measures against Palestinian prisoners, especially after the Jenin massacre”. 

Along with the Palestinian and Arab participants, the demonstration was supported and attended by local leftist and youth forces.
