SAKHNIN, Tuesday, February 28, 2023 (WAFA) - Thousands of Palestinians in Israel tonight demonstrated in the Arab town of Sakhnin in northern Israel in protest against the pogrom committed by Israeli settlers and soldiers in the West Bank, particularly in the town of Hawara, south of Nablus, and its neighboring villages.
The participants in the demonstration, called for by the Arab Higher Follow-up Committee, shouted slogans condemning the aggression against the Palestinian civilian population in the West Bank.
"We will not leave our heroic people prey to the occupation and its criminal settlers,” said the Follow-up committee in a statement. “We are facing a difficult test in which we have to show loyalty to our roots, our sons and our Palestinian people, ready to confront the injustice, arson, murder and defiling of the holy places.”
It said that this demonstration is only one step among others that it will take in solidarity with and support for the Palestinian people in the West Bank, especially in the town of Hawara and neighboring villages.
