N PICTURES: Across the West Bank, clashes have broken out with Israeli occupation forces at protests in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners.
Israeli soldiers have injured dozens of Palestinians rallying in support of around 1,700 incarcerated prisoners who have joined a hunger strike against the brutal conditions in occupation jails.

he prisoners' hunger strike, organized as the “Strike for Dignity and Freedom,” was launched on April 17, and unites Palestinian resistance factions from across the national liberation movement.
At least 28 protesters were injured Friday in the village of Beita near the West Bank Nablus district when occupation forces deployed less-lethal weaponry such as stun grenades, tear gas and rubber bullets against protesters, according to reports.
On Saturday morning, Israeli forces blocked the entrance to the village using bulldozers escorted by military personnel. The main crossroads were sealed with large dirt mounds and concrete barriers, according to Ma'an news agency.
Residents report that Palestinians have been prevented from entering or leaving the village until further notice.
"The Israeli colonial occupation is attempting through daily arrest which has affected thousands of Palestinians annually throughout the duration of the occupation to exhaust and intimidate our people and destroy its ability to struggle against the occupation," longtime political prisoner and hunger strike leader Marwan Barghouti wrote in a letter read by his wife Fadwa to thousands of supporters Wednesday at Nelson Mandela square, Ramallah, West Bank.
"This occupation has violated our cities, villages, refugee camps, holy places and Jerusalem, and it arrests dozens of Palestinians daily and subject(s) them to torture and ill treatment, including during interrogation, and falsely accuses them and adopts arbitrary decisions against them through their legitimate courts, civilian and military, and conducts policies and actions that constitute grave breaches under international law and crimes for which those responsible must be held accountable," Barghouti continued.
