Israeli Army blocks MKs, Peace Now Activists’ Visit to Jewish Settlement in Hebron
The Israeli army blocked a visit Sunday by Knesset members of the left-wing Meretz party and Peace Now activists to the Tel Romeida in the Jewish settlement enclave of Hebron for fear of clashes with Jewish settlers, Israel Radio reported, cited by Haaretz newspaper.
The left-wing delegation was visiting the divided West Bank city to check on the implementation of the Supreme Court's decision Friday to issue an interim injunction barring the construction of a Jewish settlement in an archeological site there.
The army blocked the visit by declaring the area a closed military zone, said the radio.
A verbal exchange -- conducted via loud speakers -- took place between Jewish settlers and peace activists, the radio reported – Albawaba.com
