Activists cut hole through separation wall in al-Khader

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A group of Palestinian activists dug a hole through Israel’s separation wall which surrounds the town of al-Khader south of Bethlehem on Friday.

The activists said in a statement that a hole was dug in a section of the wall running alongside Israel’s route 60 bypass road near a compound of public schools in the the old city of al-Khader.

Al-Khader is an agricultural town known for its grapes. Israel has confiscated thousands of acres of the town's lands to build settlements.

After the separation wall was built, access to the remaining lands has been difficult as farmers need to take long mountainous routes to tend their fields or pick crops.
