Palestinians clash with IDF forces in support of prisoners

April 4, 2014 17:01

Palestinian protesters demonstrated in Bethlehem and Ramallah on Friday  as signs emerged that US patience with Middle East peace talks was running out.

A small group of demonstrators held a sit-in at the main gate leading from Jerusalem to Bethlehem and chanted anti-Israel slogans before Israeli security forces approached while firing stun grenades and tear gas.

Another protest was held at the entrance of the Ofer Military camp and prison, located on the outskirts of Ramallah in Betunya.

Demonstrators there clashed with Israeli troops who blocked roads to the site and fired tear gas, stun grenades and rubber coated bullets to disperse the crowds.
