As dozens of Palestinians marched, Thursday, in solidarity with the hunger striking detainees in Israeli prisons, a number of extremist Israeli colonists opened fire on them, in al-Biereh city, in central West Bank.

Media sources said the settlers were in Psigot colony, illegally built on private Palestinian lands, in al-Biereh city, in the Ramallah and al-Biereh district.

The sources added that the Israeli assailants, hiding behind concrete blocks, fired many live rounds into the air, pushing some youngsters to hurl stones at them. The incident did not lead to any casualties.

The nonviolent procession is part of various protests and activities, held across the occupied territories in solidarity with the Palestinian detainees who are ongoing with a hunger strike which started eleven days ago.
