Residents of Al Ma’ssara village near the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem protest on Friday midday the Israeli-built wall on their lands.
The Israeli military invaded on Thursday Al Ma’ssara village and threatened local organizers of detention if the anti wall protest continue.
Villagers were joined by International and Israeli supporters. People marched from the village towards the wall construction site. Israeli troops erected a checkpoint using razor-wire and stopped people for reaching the wall site.
Organizers delivered speeches demanding Israeli to stop building the wall and settlement. People dispersed shortly after. Today’s protest was in commemoration of the April 19th 1948 Dier Yassin massacre.
Etzel and Lechi zionist military organizations attacked Deir Yassin, a village with about 750 Palestinian residents. These military organizations became part of the Israeli army when the country was officially recognized.
Over 100 men, women, and children were systematically murdered. Fifty-three orphaned children were left along the wall of Jerusalem’s Old City, where they were found by Miss Hind Husseini who brought them to her home, which was to become the Dar El-Tifl El-Arabi orphanage.
