FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
At 11am on Thursday, the Palestinians of Azun Atme will hold a non-violent protest against the construction by Israel of a wall surrounding and isolating their village. Israeli and international supporters will take part in the demonstration.
The Israeli apartheid wall will completely ghettoize the Palestinian village if it follows the planned route declared by the Israeli government. It is feared that ten houses and large tracts of agricultural land will be cut off from the rest of the village and effectively annexed to Israel.
Azun Atme, in the Qalqilya region and near the village of Mas’ha, is already surrounded on both sides by illegal Israeli settlements. The village is about 2 km outside of Israel and within the internationally recognized Green Line, or 1949 ceasefire line.
