FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On Friday, 9th June, at 2:00 PM The people of South Mt. Hebron will demonstrate against the ‘inner barrier’ being built in that region.
This “inner mini barrier” is being built along road 317 in South Mt. Hebron is being constructed as a means to circumvent an Israeli Supreme Court decision forbidding construction of the separation barrier along this route. The Palestinians of this area, who are mostly shepherds will not be able to access their lands by car or even on foot with their flocks. They will also be isolated from the nearest city, Yata, on which they depend for their living.
The alleged “security” reasons for the construction of this barrier were openly challenged by military experts who claim it would increase security risks rather than diminish them.
