South African delegation to Palestine attacked by Israeli police

10 December 2010

Members of a South African Tripartite Alliance delegation currently visiting Palestine have been attacked with tear gas and `sound bombs` and shoved around by Israeli police in Ramallah.

The delegation is led by Ribbon Mosholi, ANC International Relations Manager, and includes COSATU Deputy International Secretary, Zanele Matebula, who says that thankfully, "other than the effects of tear gas, painful ears and small bruises, we are fine."

But this is just a small taste of the brutality rained down on the people of Palestine every day. It strengthens our determination to campaign for an end to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territory and for the people of Palestine to live in an independent, sovereign state.

For more up-to-the minute news, please phone Ribbon Mosholi, in Palestine, on 082 977 0709.
