Tuesday, August 5, 2003, Mas'ha, Occupied Palestine Bulldozers destroying land in preparation for the Apartheid Wall are now less than 10 meters away from the threatened house in Mas¹ha. Over 30 peace activists are maintaining a round-the-clock vigil at the home in order to block its imminent destruction. Two Israeli activists were detained and removed from the site Monday, August 4 and spent several hours in the Ariel police station before being released.
Now, army security and security personnel have threatened to remove and/or peace activists before work resumes at 7:30 a.m. Activists have pledged not to leave the site and are planning to block the bulldozers from demolishing the property or continuing construction on the Apartheid Wall.

A'amer family will be imprisoned on less than 100 square
meters of land between the Wall and the Elkana settlement
fence. Activists are demanding: * A written
guarantee from the Israeli Defense Ministry that the A¹amer
family house will not be cut off from the village *

An end to construction of the wall and dismantling of all
parts already constructed * Repair and compensation for all
damages already caused to the house * Return of all land
