Palestinians protest Jerusalem marathon

Sit-in Jeruzalem

Dozens of Palestinian citizens in Occupied Jerusalem on Friday morning participated in a sit-in in protest at the Israeli marathon organized by the municipality in the holy city as part of its attempts to promote it as a Jewish metropolis .

According to a Palestinian Information Center (PIC) reporter in Jerusalem, the protesters carried Palestinian flags and placards denouncing the Israeli occupation and the participation of multinational citizens in the race.

Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation authority closed several streets and roads in the eastern part of the occupied holy city and deployed scores of policemen there to provide protection for about 30,000 runners from different countries.
