Palestine-Israel, Politics, 3/6/2007
The International Solidarity Movement ISM said today that the Popular Committee against the Closure of Nablus is holding a demonstration tomorrow in the center of Nablus and at Huwwara checkpoint protesting the curfew imposed on the city.
In a statement, ISM added that the General Woman's Union and a wide coalition of groups will be taking part in the demonstration which will also mark International Women's Day, which is on March 8th.
"Speeches will be given condemning the Israeli invasion, during which two were killed, many injured, thousands detained and millions of dollars worth of damage to property caused. In addition the economic life of the city, which was already under siege was severely disrupted," the ISM said.
The ISM concluded that the groups will be meeting at 10am at the Ghurfat Al Tijara on Ard Al Razaliya and after the rally will travel to Huwwara checkpoint.
Hospital sources reported today that Israeli authorities banned six-moth-old infant entry into an Israeli hospital and prevented ambulances reaching Israeli hospitals via Beit Hanoun crossing, north Gaza Strip.
The sources said that the sick were forces to wait for more than three hours at the crossing but the Israeli authorities banned them entry into Israeli hospitals in spite of recent coordination.
The sources added that the Israeli authorities disallowed Ihsan Abu Mua'mmar 15, who suffered from brain-torpid and a six-month-old sick infant, Du'a al-Zibda.
