Thousands Marching from Sakhnin to Araba


Thousands set out, Friday, in a Lower Galilee procession from the Israeli Arab city of Sakhnin to Arraba to mark Land Day, a protest against government expropriation of property. The central observance is scheduled for the afternoon in Deir Hana in coordination with police.

Friday prayers on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem started amid concern over Land Day disturbances upon their conclusion. Police Commissioner Yochanan Danino held a security assessment at the Western Wall Plaza.
