West Bank, ALRAY - The Minister of Israeli army Naftali Bennett, gave Saturday evening Israeli army instructions that restrict the activities of peace activists who participate in the weekly protests against the separation wall in West Bank.
Hebrew channel 12 reported that the decision is made in cooperation with Israeli army and Israeli police.
It noted that the decision took against left-wing activists, claiming that they make chaos.
Israeli army accused those left-wing activists of provoking members of Israeli army in the areas where protests took place in West Bank against settlements, such as Bil'in, Ni'lin, Kafr Kaddum, and the Prophet Saleh.
Bennett said " None has the right to harm our soldiers, it is time to stop these provocations and crack down on them. "
Dozens of peace activists participate weekly in several demonstrations against the apartheid wall in the occupied West Bank.
Israeli occupation authorities started to build a wall between the occupied West Bank and the Occupied Palestinian Territories in 1948, during the era of Ariel Sharon in 2002, under the pretext of preventing carrying out attacks against Israel, Palestinians call it "the apartheid wall."
According to estimates, the area of the isolated and besieged Palestinian lands between the wall and the 1948 borders amounted to about 680 square kilometers in 2012, in other word it expropriates 12 % of the area of the West Bank.
In 2004, the International Court of Justice of the United Nations adopted an advisory decision to condemn and criminalize the annexation and expansion wall, and the court’s decision considered the Israeli settlements in all its forms illegal, and contradicts the international law and legitimacy.
