NAZARETH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) is trying to disrupt and foil an attempt by a group of solidarity activists to fly into the occupied lands in support of the Palestinian people and in rejection of the IOA practices.
The Israeli radio quoted on Thursday sources in the foreign ministry as saying that activists supporting the Palestinians abroad have been working on organizing a flight, which it described as provocative, designed to confuse the occupation authorities.
It added that these activists are planning to enter Amman by air and then to head to Bethlehem through Allenby crossing.
Director general of the foreign ministry Rafi Barak met yesterday the French ambassador, Christophe Bigot, and discussed with him the issue, the radio said, adding that the French envoy expressed his country’s opposition to such provocations, but proposed to allow the activists to enter Palestinian territories.
