'Independence' Marches in Judea and Samaria Tuesday

The residents councils of Judea and Samaria have planned three marches, Tuesday afternoon, to celebrate Israeli independence in the region, ahead of Friday's scheduled bid by the Palestinian Authority for recognition by the United Nations as a sovereign state.

The marches are scheduled to leave Beit-El, Itamar and Kiryat Arba at 5:00 p.m. and will culminate with gatherings featuring public figures. The Shomron (Samaria) Residents' Council has invited people from around the country to participate and to fly the Israeli flag during the upcoming week.
