Construction work starts in Iskaka on Wednesday

Construction work starts in Iskaka on Wednesday

DATE: Wednesday, June 16, 2004 TIME: 9am PLACE: Iskaka, Salfit

[Iskaka, Salfit] Bulldozers will begin to work on the wall in Iskaka on Wednesday.

The community of Iskaka has asked for international and Israeli activists to come to Iskaka on Wednesday at 9am. Iskaka is located deep inside the West Bank, at least 10 miles from the Green Line. The construction of the Wall in the district of Salfit will de facto annex most of the villagers' farmlands to Israel in order to include illegal settlement blocs within the wall.

Demonstrations against the construction of the Wall are also continuing in Az Zawiya.
