RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Around 150 protestors demonstrated on Wednesday in front of an Israeli chain store east of Ramallah, the Popular Struggle Committee said.

Four activists were detained and several injured as Israeli police and soldiers broke up the demonstration, a statement said.

Palestinian, international and Israeli protesters gathered outside of a branch of the Rami Levi store, chanting slogans and carrying banners calling for a boycott of Israeli products.

"As long as there is no justice to Palestinians, Israeli and settler daily life can’t continue on as normal," the committee said.

Basim Tamimi, the head of the Popular Committee of Nabi Saleh, was beaten and suffered broken ribs and several other people were injured, the popular committee said.

The protest took place near the village of Mikhmas, east of Ramallah. There are several Rami Levi stores in the occupied West Bank, which attract both Israeli and Palestinian customers.
