Anti-wall protests take on Egyptian theme

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces suppressed on Friday the weekly demonstration in Al-Ma’sara village south of Bethlehem.

Demonstrators held Palestinian and Egyptian flags in solidarity with the Egyptian people. The demonstration was filled with banners supporting Egypt.

Protesters also held pictures of a Palestinian who was killed in the village.

Similar scenes were reported at the weekly protest in Bil'in, near Ramallah.

"We hope that the rebelling Arab people make it their priority to demand from any government or leadership to come to sever their ties with the Israeli occupation and abandon the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty," the popular committee there said.

"We believe it would be better to direct the masses towards the Israeli embassies and interests as an alternative to targeting the capabilities of the Egyptian people and the headquarters of its security."
