Apr 09,2021

Palestinian activists called on the people to pray in their lands to confront the Israeli occupation's settlement policy and to prevent its seizure in favor of settlement expansion.

Dozens of Palestinian citizens in Masafer Yatta, south of al-Khalil, performed Friday prayer on lands threatened with confiscation by the Israeli occupation in the Ein al-Bayda area.

Palestinian activists called on the people to pray in their lands to confront the Israeli occupation's settlement policy and to prevent its seizure in favor of settlement expansion. 

Fuad Al-Amour, the coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committee, said that dozens of residents performed Friday prayer in Ein al-Bayda, amid the intensified presence of the Israeli occupation soldiers. 

After performing the prayer, citizens and several foreign solidarity activists organized a march, rejecting the occupation’s policy of ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians and the settlers’ bulldozing works in the area.

The participants planted olive trees in the lands threatened with seizure, stressing that they will continue to confront the occupation policy and its continuous attacks on citizens' lands and property.
