PA prevents march supporting hunger strikers

June 20, 2014 7:42 P.M. (Updated: June 22, 2014 11:20 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Palestinian security services on Friday prevented a march supporting prisoners in Hebron from taking place, participants and onlookers reported.

Security services prevented a march that was called for by the Palestinian Prisoners Center for Studies to support hunger-striking prisoners in Israeli jails.

Security services prevented journalists from doing their jobs, a journalist told Ma'an.

"Journalists were prevented from taking pictures of the march, and then they were allowed to but the march was prevented to walk to al-Manara. Then they were allowed to walk to al-Haras mosque and the security divided them there.”

An employee of a US-based news network told Ma'an that the security services beat reporters "savagely" and broke at least one camera.

The Palestinian Prisoners Center for Studies condemned the security service for preventing the march.

The governor of Hebron has updated the prime minister on the incident, informed sources said.
