Thousands celebrate Palestinian culture in Jerusalem

Published on Mar 25, 2014

Thousands of people surrounded Jerusalem’s Old City walls from Bab al-Khalil (Jaffa Gate) to Bab al-Asbat (Lions’ Gate) on March 16 for a celebration of Palestinian culture and education.

In an event organized by the Shabbab al-Balad youth initiative, Palestinians from Jerusalem, the West Bank, and areas inside Israel gathered to read and to mark the anniversary of the opening of a public library in East Jerusalem’s Jabal al-Mukkaber neighborhood.

For those in the West Bank who were unable to obtain Israeli permits to enter Jerusalem, a similar event was held in Bethlehem’s Manger Square.
