Activists Succeed in Raising Palestine Flag at Dead Sea

JERICHO, September 28, 2013 (WAFA) – Dozens of Palestinian activists and international supporters succeeded Saturday in reaching an area of the Dead Sea where they raised the Palestinian flag, according to the activists.

Hasan Breijeh, one of the activists from Bethlehem, said that even though the Israeli military had set up checkpoints on the roads leading to Jericho and the Dead Sea and arrested activists, including three arrested at the “Container” checkpoint leading out of Bethlehem to the main Jericho-Jerusalem road, at least 30 activists succeeded in reaching the Fashkha area on the Dead Sea.

He said the activists raised the Palestinian flag and signs denouncing Israeli seizure of Palestinian land to build settlements on it.
