Friday, March 6 2009 Planting in Wadi Humus

Together with the residents of Beit Jala and Rabbis for Human Rights we went to plant in Wadi Humus, between Beit Jala and Gilo. However, access to the wadi is denied to all but a few of the Palestinians who have a special permit. Therefore most of our Palestinian partners remained outside the fence. The seedlings were passed under the fence into the restricted area, and only the Israeli activists and a handful of Palestinians with permits planted the seedlings for the group.
