Hundreds of people gathered at the entrance to Umm al-Fahm in demonstration of the house demolition policy in the area.
The residents are slated to hold a procession in response to the destruction of a commercial center in Umm al-Fahm two months ago. One of the rally's organizers said, "The State of Israel exists for 61 years. On the one hand it does not allow for outline programs and on the other it destroys houses in the Arab communities. We can not accept such a situation." (Sharon Roffe-Ofir)
