At least 150 Palestinians from the village of Al Khader located near the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem along with Israeli and international supporters protested the Israeli wall on Friday that is being built on the village lands.

The protest started with midday prayers held on the settler road near the village, then speechs were delivered by local organizers.

Samier Jaber of the local committee against the Wall and settlement encouraged the farmers to continue their resistance against the wall to save their lands from destruction.

Palestinian exports say that the ongoing Israeli occupation extends settlements on private Palestinian land, and constructs the Apartheid Wall that separate Palestinians from one another and from their farming/working areas. This converts the Palestinian land into separated enclaves that don’t have the basic economic structures that enable people to survive with dignity and ambition.
