Palestinians from a number of villages located near the central West Bank city of Ramallah protested in commemoration of Land Day on Friday. Villagers from Beit Uor, Beit Syira, Saffa, and Al Tiyra, gathered at the village of Khrabtha where they held midday Friday prayers and then proceeded to the Israeli settler road known as Rd. 443.
Israeli soldiers blocked the protestors by installing razor wire in front of them, the protest ended peacefully after several speeches were given by the organizers.
Road 443 was closed by the army seven years ago, forbidding the surrounding Palestinians from accessing it.
