    Palestinian Activists Revive Deserted Palestinian Village of 'Ein

    Published on Friday, 31 January 2014 23:27


Hundreds of Palestinian activists from various West Bank villages and 
cities succeeded on Friday, in reaching the village of Ein Hajleh in the 
Jordan Valley which is located two kilometers away from the Jordanian 

Dr. Mustafa al-Barghouthi, Secretary General of the Palestinian National 
Initiative, told PNN that upon arrival, youths started chanting national 
songs, adding that the village was surrounded by Israeli forces who 
threatened to break into the village if not evacuated immediately.

Al-Bargouthi said that the activists didn't erect tents, but they 
re-opened the old and abandoned homes in the village. It's worth 
mentioning that this village has been closed and uninhabited for 47 years.

Al-Barghouthi added that the activists succeeded to reach the village 
despite dozens of Israeli checkpoints that were set in the area.

Al-Barghouthi confirmed that the message from reopening and reviving 
this village and the other two villages of Bab As-Shams and Ahfad 
Younis, is to reinforce the popular resistance and the Boycott, 
Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement against Israel.
