Safa Protesters Remove 100 Meters Of Fence Isolating Them From Their Orchards
As part of the protests marking the 36th anniversary of the Palestinian Land Day, and the Global March to Jerusalem, residents of Safa village, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, headed to their lands and orchards that were illegally confiscated by Israel, and isolated behind a barbed-wire fence, and managed to remove 100 meters of the fence.
Israeli soldiers arrived at the scene and chased the protesters, an issue that led to clashes as dozens of youths burnt tires, and hurled stones and empty bottles at the armored Israeli military jeeps.
