IDF forces used crowd dispersal means against some 250 Palestinian protesters outside the Ofer Military Prison Wednesday, in the second straight day of protests held in solidarity with hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners.

The IDF said some of the protesters threw stones at IDF personnel, to which soldiers responded with various means including rubber bullets. No arrests were made and no soldiers were injured.

While the IDF said one protestor was lightly injured at the scene, Abir Kopty of the Popular Struggle Resistance Committee said she counted 20 injured protestors, including four or five who were taken away by ambulance.

She said that like yesterday, there has been in her estimation a higher than normal amount of rubber bullets used by the Israeli forces.
