Palestinians Erect Tent City in E-1 to Protest Settlement Construction

Police block off area; group behind the protest in the E-1 corridor, between Jerusalem and Ma'ale Adumim in the West Bank, says it will not leave until 'Palestinian owners of this land are allowed to realize their right to it.'

Dozens of Palestinians erected semi-permanent tents in the E-1 area of the West Bank on Friday in protest at continuing construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and in attempt to create a foothold for what they hope will become a permanent settlement.
