Left-wing activists, Palestinians cut hole in separation fence
(hoping to help terrorists murder Jewish civilians)
By Mijal Grinberg, Haaretz Correspondent
Left-wing activists and Palestinians cut a 30-meter hole in the security
fence south of Mount Hebron on Saturday in a demonstration against its
construction and route, which they said deviates from the Green Line.
The activists said it took Israel Defense Forces at least an hour to reach
the site of the incident. There were no clashes between the activists and
Jonathan Pollack, one of the protesters, told Haaretz the group had
arrived at the site at around 1:30 PM, and had joined forces with a group
of Palestinians from a village near Dahariya.
The demonstrators even succeeded in disarming the electronic wiring and
posts that reinforce the fence.
Pollack stressed that the part of the fence that was destroyed deviates
from the Green Line set out in the ceasefire agreement following the 1948
War of Independence. However, he said the activists' Saturday protest was
against the fence in its entirety. "The fence is a symbol of the
occupation, whose aim is to control the Palestinian population," he said.
