BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Activists raised Palestinian flags at the entrance to a
Bethlehem-area settlement on Friday, at a protest in solidarity with
Palestinians jailed in Israel.

Activists gathered at the Elazer settlement, south of Bethlehem, chanting
"Free the prisoners," local committee activist Muhammad Braijieh said.

The settlement is built on lands belonging to the Bethlehem town of
al-Khader.

Israeli troops intervened in the protest and a fistfight erupted, he said.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said around 30 Palestinians blocked the
entrance to Elazer and forces asked them to leave, but she was not aware of
any physical confrontations.

After the protest, activists blocked the bypass road in front of the
settlement. The protesters condemned the fatal shooting by Israeli forces of
Bethlehem woman Lubna Hanash on Wednesday.
