Palestinian Grassroots Anti-apartheid Wall Campaign

Activists cut the fence of the Apartheid Wall in Rafat and blocking the settler road belonging to the settlement of Ofra.

19.11.2012. Approximately 100 of the popular resistance activists and foreigners showing their solidarity cut open 30 meters of the fence belonging to the apartheid wall in Rafat, in the Ramallah and al-Bireh region, and raised the Palestinian flag.
The coordinator for Stop the Wall, Ahad Khawaja, said that the activist afterwards tried to close the settler road of Ofra, and that the Israeli army responded by shooting live rounds at the demonstrators.

Additionally, he says that this occurrence expresses the anger of the Palestinian people and its protests against the continuing attack of Gaza at this moment. The attack that started six days ago has now led to over 90 martyrs, where the majority is children, women, elderlies. He stresses the importance of continuing these activities for the support of Gaza, and to reject the crimes committed by the Israeli occupation.
