Bethlehem demonstration for Khader Adnan stopped at checkpoint

MAAN NEWS AGENCY FEB 21 2012

 

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Palestinian demonstrators marched toward a Bethlehem checkpoint on Tuesday, before being stopped by Palestinian security forces.

Dozens of university students carrying Palestinian flags set off from Bethlehem University towards the Israeli military checkpoint next to Rachel’s Tomb in the west of the city, protesting the situation of hunger-striking prisoner Khader Adnan.

Some demonstrators threw stones at an Israeli military tower, but they were pushed back by Palestinian security forces, witnesses said.

The protest came shortly before Palestinian and Israeli officials announced that Israel intended to release Adnan on April 17, shortly before his administrative detention term was set to end.

In return, Adnan agreed to end his strike, PA and Israeli officials said.
