As part of a nonviolent activity to express solidarity with Palestinian detainees, holding an open-ended hunger-strike in Israeli prisons and detention centers, a group of Palestinian activists removed Israeli flags for a main road, near Ramallah, to replace them with Palestinian flags.

The road in question links between the West Bank districts of Ramallah and Nablus. It is also used by Israeli settlers living in illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.

The activists stated that the Israeli flags should not be there because the area question is an important part of the Palestinian territories; therefore, Israeli flags must be replaced with Palestinian flags.

“This is our moral, legal, human and national responsibility”, they said, “This is our land, occupation flags must be replaced with Palestinian flags”.
