Buses from Tulkarem and Nablus were stopped and turned back by the Israeli Army before reaching Jerusalem this morning.

Buses from Jenin and Palestinians from the Jerusalem and Ramallah area have already arrived in Al-Ram and are awaiting the buses that were to join them in their march to Jerusalem

Palestinians from the West Bank, supported by international and Israeli peace activists, are marching to the military checkpoints surrounding the holy city of Jerusalem. They are determined to continue the protest and demand their right to religious freedom.

For twelve years, East Jerusalem has been cut off from the rest of the Occupied Territories. In the past three years, people of the Muslim and Christian faiths have been denied the right to worship in Jerusalem.
