Saturday, Israeli forces arrested 3 people from Jerusalem during activities for the Memorial of the Land day in al Jabal al Zaytun area in Jerusalem
The arrested people are: Yussef al Mu’akat, his brother Ayman and Fakhri Abu Deyab, a member of defending the land committee. Israeli forces raided the land in al Mu’akat in the early morning whilst locals were planting Olive trees to celebrate Land Day. The police asked to see evidence that the land belonged to the family. When he produced it they arrested him anyway. Israeli forces then surrounded the land and took photos of the activity and the reporters.
Dozens of locals and Palestinians from ’48 planted trees in a few areas in Jerusalem. Activities were organized by the Jerusalem Organization as they planted 2000 trees in al Zaytun mountain, Silwan, Al Nabi Sameul village, al Mukabber mountain and the second one for Fatah’s movement in Jabal al Zaytun and the Matlla area in al Essawiye
