Israeli Forces Detain 2 Palestinians, 9 Internationals

Israeli forces detain two Palestinians and nine foreign nationals working on the ‘Green Palestine’ project near the village of Umm Salamoneh south of Beit Lahm (Bethlehem).

Ibrahim Awad, the coordinator of the Popular Committee Against the Separation Wall in the area said Israeli forces raided his land on Thursday and detained him along with a member of the village council and nine foreign nationals near the illegal Effrat settlement.

Israeli forces also detained dozens of foreigners and the employees of the Palestinian Ministry of Agriculture in the Umm Salamoneh village, said Ibrahim Masha’leh, the Deputy Director of Agriculture in Beit Lahm (Bethlehem).

The ‘Green Palestine’ project focuses on the rehabilitation of agricultural lands, and is run by local committees in cooperation with local governments, education professionals, and local councils in order to provide a healthy living environment for Palestinian residents.
