RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Seven Palestinians were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets during clashes with Israeli soldiers following a march by prisoners' rights groups near Ofer jail in Beitunia on Thursday.

Dozens of Palestinians took part in the march that set off from central Beitunia toward Ofer jail.

Israeli forces fired tear-gas canisters at protesters before the march started approaching the jail.

The demonstration was called for by the popular resistance and national committees to commemorate Palestinian Prisoner's Day on April 17.

Israeli forces suppressed the march using rubber-coated steel bullets, stun grenades and tear-gas canisters while youths responded with stones.
