Palestinians 'to march on Jerusalem'

Aug. 23, 2011 9:04 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 23, 2011 9:04 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinians will march on Jerusalem from four directions in a coordinated protest organized by the "Olive-Revolution" movement on the last Friday of Ramadan, activists said Tuesday.

Activists accompanied by Israeli and international supporters will convene to launch the campaign by marching on Jerusalem from north, west, south and east, the Popular Struggle Coordination Committee stated.

The demonstrations will "emphasize the fact that Palestinians are systematically denied entry to the city Israel, despite it being part of the territory occupied in 1967," the popular committee said.
