Palestinian Protesters Break through Separation Wall
Local Editor

Palestinians on Friday tore a hole through part of "Israel's" separation wall in the outskirts of al-Quds, witnesses said.

This act marked the Nakba anniversary and the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.
Abdullah Abu Rahma, leader of the People's Campaign to Fight the Wall, stated, "Today we commemorate 20 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall."
"This is the beginning of the activities, which we do, to express our hold on our land, and our refusal to this wall - the wall of torture, the wall of humiliation," he added.

"Israeli" soldiers assaulted the Palestinian protesters by firing tear gas grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets.
Several of the estimated 50 demonstrators passed through the hole they had made, hoisting a Palestinian flag and setting tires ablaze on the other side.
Protesters were wearing shirts with the text "al-Quds, we are coming".
Activists have vowed to hold a week of protests in the Palestinian territories and around the world, including a campaign calling for the release of all anti-wall activists currently imprisoned.

The wall is up to 8m high, twice the height of the former Berlin wall.
Palestinian sources anticipated that it may be more than 750km-long when construction is finished, more than four times the length of the Berlin wall, agencies reported.

The International Court of Justice in 2004, said the "Israeli"-built apartheid was illegal and should be taken down because it crossed into occupied territory.

A report by Stop the Wall, a Palestinian coalition of NGOs opposed to the wall, said that in 2007 alone, "Israel" demolished more than 160 houses and appropriated more than 3sq km of land in the Palestinian West Bank in its construction of the wall.
