Activists Build New Tent Village near Nablus

NABLUS, February 2, 2013 (WAFA) – A group of activists Saturday built a new tent village ‘al-Manatir’ in the area located between the illegal settlement of Bracha and the village of Burin south of Nablus, said witnesses.

The activists put up a number of tents since the first hours of the morning and intend to remain in the area, which was quickly sealed off by Israeli army to prevent more activists from reaching the new village.

Witnesses said a large number of settlers arrived in the area and clashed with the activists causing a number of injuries.

Activists have been setting up tent villages on West Bank land threatened with expropriation by Israel in order to build Jewish settlements on.
