RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- A group of Palestinian youth used dirt mounds to close off a number of roads leading to the central occupied West Bank city of Ramallah city before dawn on Sunday, in an act of protest in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike in Israeli prisons.

Locals told Ma’an that the closure aimed to obstruct Palestinians from reaching Ramallah city "in an attempt to make them remember the suffering of Palestinian prisoners," who entered the 28th day on hunger strike on Sunday.

The activists closed roads in the towns of Birzeit, Beitin, Dura al-Qari, Jalazun refugee camp, Ein Siniya, Silwad, Jifna, and Yabrud.

Palestinian forces reopened all of the roads later Sunday morning.
