Leftists Demand Entrance to Tul Karem
A group of extreme-leftist protestors from “Peace Warriors” and other groups held a protest on Wednesday night demanding that the army allow them to enter Tul Karem. Tul Karem, an Arab city controlled by the Palestinian Authority, is off limits to Israeli citizens for security reasons.
The protestors say they wish to attend a rally in the city. The rally supports a PA-controlled state in Judea and Samaria, they said. A similar rally was held on Tuesday in the Arab village Kfar Anta, near Jerusalem.
