Palestinians protest outside Ofer prison, honour Hugo Chavez

As part of the ongoing series of mobilizations and demonstrations throughout Palestine in support of Palestinian prisoners, Palestinian activists protested outside Ofer prison on March 6, 2013. They were attacked by Israeli occupation forces, who shot live ammunition and rubber bullets at the protesters, wounding 16 protesters. Among others, Hassan Karajah, youth coordinator for the Stop the Wall campaign, is scheduled to face a military hearing today at the prison.
