“The peaceful anti-war demonstration of Palestinians and Israelis in the occupied Jordan Valley was met with a ‘closed military zone’ order followed by violence, arrests and seizure of equipment by the police officers and soldiers. This is how Israel treats, and have always treated, any joint Israel and Palestinian peaceful protest in the occupied West Bank,” said to journalists a PCI spokesperson.
