DFLP members protest in Gaza against Israel's West Bank campaign

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine organized a sit-in Tuesday to protest against Israel's ongoing military action in the West Bank.

Members of the DFLP gathered in front of the UN refugee agency's Gaza offices in solidarity with Palestinians in the West Bank.

"The Israeli escalation in Hebron and other Palestinian cities in the West Bank, the ongoing assaults and detentions against our people including lawmakers, and the torture of Palestinian prisoners, especially hunger strikers are sorts of collective punishment by the Israeli government in attempt to foil Palestinian reconciliation," faction leader Abd al-Hamid Hamad said in a speech during the event.

Hamad urged Palestinians to stand in solidarity with prisoners through sit-in strikes, solidarity tents, and other activities.

The Israeli army launched a military campaign in the West Bank after the Thursday disappearance of three Israeli youths from an area near the illegal Gush Etzion settlement.

Over 100 Palestinians have been on hunger strike in Israeli jails since April 24 in protest of Israel's policy of administrative detention, or detention without charge or trial.
