Palestinians to ride on Settler Buses to challange segregation
A group of Palestinian, International and Israeli activists rode Israeli Eged buses, going to Jerusalem on Tuesday afternoon, challenging and Israeli regulation that prohibits Palestinians to use such buses except with a special permit, Palestinian activists said.
Around forty people boarded the bus earlier today at the settlement of Pisgat Ze’ev, a service running between East and West Jerusalem. Their numbers comprised of six Palestinian activists, journalists, and international activists. Just past the check point, near the settlement of Kochav Yacov, the bus was stopped, and Israeli Police boarded.
