Palestinians hold demo to protest Israeli occupation

england flaq burnPalestinians have staged an anti-Israeli demonstration near the West Bank city of Nablus to protest against the expropriation of their land by the Zionist regime.

Scores of Palestinian protesters took part in the weekly anti-occupation protest in the village of Kfar Qaddum on Friday and called for an end to the Israeli occupation.

During their demonstration, the Palestinians burned a British flag in condemnation of London’s support for the Israeli occupation of their lands.

This week’s protest coincided with the 95th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, which refers to a formal statement of policy by the British government on November 2, 1917 regarding the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.

A similar anti-occupation rally was also held in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh near Ramallah.

Israeli forces broke up both protests, but there were no immediate reports of injuries. A foreign photographer who was covering the Nabi Saleh protest was, however, arrested.
