Dozens of Palestinians blocked the entrance to a supermarket near a West Bank settlement Wednesday and called on people to boycott settlement-made products.

Security forces arrested four of the Palestinian activists — one of whom was injured — at the protest, which took place in Sha’ar Binyamin, near Beit El, outside a branch of the Rami Levy supermarket chain.

“As long as there’s no justice for the Palestinians, the lives of Israelis will not continue as usual,” the demonstrators chanted outside the Rami Levy supermarket branch.

One of the people arrested was reportedly Bassem Tamimi, a Palestinian activist from the village of Nabi Saleh who was recently released from jail in Israel, and whose cousin, Mustafa Tamimi, was killed by a teargas canister during that community’s weekly demonstrations in 2011.
