Press Release

Today, Wednesday, July 09, 2008, the Israel Police blocked a tour of The South African Human Rights Delegation to Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories in the city of Hebron. The police declared the delegation's visit to the city as an "illegal gathering", and arrested the three Israeli guides accompanying the delegation. As of 2:30 pm, the 25 members of the delegation are camped opposite the Hebron police station, demanding that the police releases the three detainees. Among the South Africans present at the event are a Justice of the South African Supreme Court, several members of Parliament, senior attorneys, journalists, and human rights activists.
