Palestinian, Israeli, international peace activists take control of Israeli military checkpoint

April 24, 2008 1:30 P.M. (Updated: April 24, 2008 1:30 P.M.)
Ramallah - Ma'an - A group of Palestinian, Israeli and international peace activists took over an Israeli checkpoint that separates Ramallah and the village of Ein Kinia on Thursday, reopening a road that had been closed

since the beginning of the Al-Aqsa Intifada in 2000.

The Israeli army evacuated the checkpoint and moved to a nearby hill, before the activists moved in, replacing the Israeli flags with Palestinian flags.

Activist Mohammed al-Khatib said the action symbolised the refusal of the Israeli policy of road closures and separating Palestinians from their lands.

He called on Palestinians to mobilise and open the closed roads. He also called for "resistance to barriers, settlements and the apartheid wall."
