RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Protesters rallied in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners at the weekly demonstration in Bilin near Ramallah on Friday.

Israeli forces fired plastic-coated steel bullets, tear gas canisters and sound bombs toward the demonstrators, activists said. The tear gas canisters set fire to olive trees in the Abu Laimoun reserve, they added.

Protesters raised Palestinian flags and chanted slogans for national unity, and demanded the release of all prisoners, particularly those on long-term hunger strikes in Israeli jails.
