WATCH: Palestinians protest in support of hunger strikers

Protesters demonstrated on Tuesday outside the Ofer Prison in the West Bank in support of some 2,000 Palestinian prisoners taking part in a mass hunger strike. At least two of those prisoners, Bilal Diab and Thaer Halahleh, are considered at immediate risk of death. In the video below, a Palestinian woman is seen climbing atop an Israeli “skunk” water truck. Witness the Israeli forces’ crowd dispersal methods in action.

    2. I hate to see such a young woman have to do this. The concept of progress itself has been harmed. But, for her, she had to. That is a fact making her world.

      If only they would struggle that hard to make peace rather than to stick a finger in Israel’s eye.
