PSP Activists Join Weekly Demonstration in Um Salmona

6 April 2012

On Friday, April 06, 2012, Palestinian, Israeli and international activists joined the weekly peaceful demonstration in Um Salmona. Um Salmona is a small village located 12 km southwest of Bethlehem, and a separation barrier cuts through the village. During the demonstration, Israeli soldiers blocked two roads, preventing demonstrators from reaching the barrier. They also stopped cars from using the roads. Several Palestinian children broke through the line of soldiers, and waved Palestinian flags over an Israeli army jeep. There were no arrests, and no injuries.

Tomorrow, activists will join the weekly demonstration in Beit Ommar against the settlements and separation fence, and in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners on hunger strikes.
