      Imneizel Villagers Bring Occupation Bulldozers To Standstill
      Latest News, The Grassroots Palestinian Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign,
      June 27th, 2005

      Villagers from Imneizil in South Hebron district brought Occupation
      bulldozers to a halt on Monday June 27th. Palestinian flags adorned
      the bulldozers which have razed 400 dunums of land here in the last
      week as villagers took back their confiscated land. Two Palestinians
      were injured as the Occupation Forces spent several hours pushing and
      beating demonstrators back.

      Protestors assembled in the afternoon from the small village of
      Imneizil in South Hebron and marched to the hills and the worksite of
      the Occupation Forces and their machinery. Villagers blocked the path
      of the bulldozers bringing their work to a standstill. Demonstrators
      rejoiced as they mounted the bulldozers and took back their land which
      has been confiscated for the Apartheid Wall and the expansion of the

      Occupation Forces beat villagers forcing them back into the village
      where they will be ghettoized by the Apartheid Wall. There were two
      injuries as the Occupation deployed its standard violence and brutality.

      So far around 400 dunums of fertile land has been destroyed and
      several hundred trees uprooted for the Apartheid Wall. Farmland
      containing grape, olive and almond trees - and which yielded the life
      source for the village - has been destroyed. The Wall will isolate
      land that is expected to be annexed into the nearby settlement of
      Metzadot Yehuda, immediately to the south of the village. One of the
      village's main water wells will also be isolated behind the Wall.

      Water shortages are becoming an increasingly dire problem in Hebron
      district as the Wall's route has been planned to isolate many of the
      local natural water resources. A settler bypass road is also under
      construction, parallel to the Wall, which will pass just 15 metres
      from the village school. Located between the Apartheid Wall and
      settler roads, villages across Palestine are being turned into
      disparate and miserable ghettos, cut off from land and life.
