Palestinian governorates witnessed late Wednesday massive rallies in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons, some of which ended in confrontations with the Israeli forces.
Hundreds of Palestinians also took part in a mass rally in Ramallah denouncing the Israel Prison Services (IPS) collective punishment against all Palestinians in Israeli jails.
The secretary of Fatah Revolutionary Council Majid al-Fitiani stressed that the rally comes in support of Palestinian prisoners following the escape of six prisoners, and aims at sending a message to the world that the attacks targeting the Palestinian people must be put to an end.
In Nablus, Israeli forces attacked a rally near Huwwara military checkpoint with tear gas canisters and stun grenades.
In the Al-Manara area in the center of Ramallah, hundreds participated in a sit-in called by national and Islamic forces. Participants chanted slogans stressing solidarity with prisoners.
