Wafa correspondent in Hebron said that the soldiers tried to prevent the rally from taking place, by closing the area and declaring it a military zone.
They also detained Wafa journalist, Mashhour Wahwah, Azmi Banat (Palestine TV correspondent), Younes Arar (director of the anti-settlement and wall committee in Southern West Bank), as well as a member of the Hebron governorate and two members of the municipal council of Bani Naim.
