PALESTINIANS SET UP NEW W. BANK PROTEST CAMP

Muslim World

Palestinians and activists on were 2 February setting up camp near a village in the northern West Bank, in their third attempt at a new form of protest against Jewish settlements. The structures at the site near Burin, south of Nablus, so far comprised of four huts and three tents. The neighbourhood is called Al-Manatir.

The encampment was on Burin village land. There were ‘small attempts here and there, but this was the third massive’ such undertaking. Burin lost a lot of its land to the settlements around, Har Bracha and others, and is subject to settlers’ terror and attacks on the people. In January, Palestinians put up a 24-tent protest camp on the eastern outskirts of Jerusalem, called Bab Al-Shams or Gate of the Sun in Arabic, in a bid to draw attention to Israeli plans to build in the area, known as E1.
