Occupation close roads in Jerusalem for a marathon

[ PIC 16/03/2012 – 03:42 PM ]

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– IOF troops started Friday morning closing roads in the occupied city of Jerusalem for a marathon run organised by the Zionist municipality, which Palestinians view as part of the municipality’s Judaization efforts.

Local sources said that IOF troops closed a number of roads and entrances to Palestinian neighbourhoods in al-Masharef mount and Tour mount and near the walls of the Aqsa Mosque. Thousands of IOF troops and occupation police were deployed on the roads. Municipal workers posted signs for the marathon, in which hundreds of people from various countries are participating. Strict security measures, especially at the entrances to the Aqsa Mosque during the Friday prayers, will last till the end of the marathon.

Palestinians, the indigenous population of Jerusalem, accuse the racist municipality of acts that reinforces Zionist sovereignty over the holy city.
