Scores protest the illegal Israeli Wall near Bethlehem

Al-Khader- Bethlehem

About 200 Palestinians and their international and Israeli supporters protested the illegal Israeli Wall being built on the lands of Al Khader village south of Bethlehem city in the southern part of the West Bank.

The protest started with the Friday prayers that were conducted at the nearby Al Nashahs Israeli army checkpoint just outside the village. Later the protesters marched towards the checkpoint carrying flags and banners demanding the halt of the construction of the illegal wall that Israel is building on their land and the immediate end to the attacks in the Gaza Strip.

Israeli troops stopped the march from going through the checkpoint and prevented journalists from taking photos.

Short speeches in Arabic and English were delivered by the organizers of the protest and the protest ended shortly thereafter. No confrontation with the soldiers was reported.
