Palestinian activists blast hole in separation fence near Jerusalem on Saturday.
Palestinian activists blasted a hole in the separation wall near the Palestinian town of Bir Nabala north of Jerusalem on Saturday to mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, although similar acts of vandalism against the separation fence were occurred in the past regardless of the date.
"It doesn't matter how high the barriers will be, they will fall. Like the Berlin Wall fell – The Palestinian wall will fall," the Palestinian activists who organized the event wrote in a statement according to the Palestinian Ma'an News Agency.

The activists also claimed that they wanted to prove that the limitations on prayer at the al-Aqsa mosque will not last. They called upon young citizens to participate in the "Last Intifada and the fateful release of Palestine."
The Berlin Wall fell on November 9, 1989, after 30 years. Israel started building the separation barrier in the West Bank in the early 2000's after a wave of murderous terror during the Second Intifada.
