Demolition of part of the separation wall in East Jerusalem
July 10, 2013

On the ninth anniversary of the International Court of Justice in The Hague regarding the necessity to remove the separation wall, dozens of activists from the popular resistance demolished on Tuesday part of the separation wall in Ras Kabsa in Bethany east of Jerusalem. Mohammad Matar, secretary of youth in the West Bank, said that activists from the popular resistance used hand tools to make two holes in the wall in the area of Ras Kabsa which separates the village of Bethany from Jerusalem. The Israeli forces threw sound bombs and fired rubber bullets towards the young men which made them leave the area. The popular resistance activists called for turning the anniversary of The Hague decision into a national day to demolish the separation wall in the Palestinian territories. Matar said: “the international rules guarantee freedom of worship for Muslim, and deny the existence of the separation wall in the Palestinian territories, and we insist on our right of getting to and praying in Al-Aqsa at all times, especially that Ramadan is about to start.”
