Dozens of Palestinians staged demonstrations outside the Al-Baraka hospital complex in the Southern West Bank city of Hebron (Al-Khalil) to protest the occupation of the premises by Jewish settlers.
The demonstrations, which included a number of Palestinian Christians, were organized by local popular resistance committees, Anadolu reported.
“Palestinians will never accept Israel's policy of illegal Jewish settlement,” Fr. Attallah Hanaa, a Palestinian Christian clergyman who participated in the protest, told the agency.
“We will always reject Israel's seizure of Islamic and Christian institutions,” he said.
“We are of this land; it is our home, our history, our identity,” the priest added. “And we will never surrender it to the Israeli occupiers.”
According to Israeli daily Haaretz, the settlers claim to have purchased the hospital complex from a US-based Christian NGO through a Swedish firm that served as middleman.
