200 Palestinians supported by international and Israeli peace activists staged a nonviolent protest on Wednesday midday near Azun Al Atmeh village east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia.
The protesters marched from the nearby village of Izbit Isliman until the gate of the wall that leads to the village of Azun Al Atmeh.
Azun Al Atmeh is completely surrounded by the Israeli Wall and settlement, this gate of the Wall is the only way for the farmers to move in or out of their village.
At the gate the organizers of the protest chanted against the Wall and demanded its removal.
In the West Bank today the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements are organizing a number of activists in commemoration of the 4th year after the International Court of Justice announced on July 9, 2004 that the Israeli Wall being built in the West Bank is illegal and should be removed and those damaged must be compensated.
Abdualh Judah, of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlement in Qalqilia, said that soldiers manning the Wall-gate called in more troops but did not do anything to stop the action.
