West Bank, (Pal Telegraph)-Israeli forces detained yesterday evening two international supporters who were trying to enter the town of Beit Ummer in order to participate residents in the weekly rally against the Apartheid Wall.
Yousef Abu Maria, anti-wall committee spokesman in Beit Ummer, said that dozens of Israeli armed soldiers prevented participants from reaching Al-Daher area near Karmi Tsur settlement built on the Palestinian territories.
Israeli soldiers detained two peace activists and assaulted a number of them, declaring the area as a “military closed zone”.
Hundreds of Palestinians from Beit Ummer and the nearby villages organize non-violent rallies every Saturday to oppose Israeli ongoing confiscation and demolition.
