Bethlehem PNN Exclusive – Today two Palestinian youth from the March 15 Youth Coalition threatened to set themselves on fire if Palestinians do not achieve national unity.

Image This afternoon at the Mosque of Omar, across from Manger Square, two members of the March 15 Youth Coalition threatened to set themselves on fire unless Bethlehem parliamentarians met their group.

As of 5:30 p.m. one of the two has left the mosque and is no longer threatening self-immolation.

The remaining young man threatens that he will set himself on fire if the Palestinian parliamentarians from the Bethlehem municpality do not appear at the unity tent in Manger square.

The March 15 Youth Coalition set up protest tents nearly a week ago, declaring themselves a movement demanding national unity and the creation of a new Palestinian national council.
