International Activists Arrested for Blocking Destruction of Palestinian Roads by Israeli Military
 
NABLUS - July 29 - An Israeli army bulldozer accompanied by an armored personnel carrier today attempted to dig trenches in the road that leads from the Palestinian city of Nablus to the neighboring village of Iraq Bureen. Yesterday, international activists and Palestinians worked to remove roadblocks that had been placed by the military on this road to obstruct Palestinian movement and block the delivery of food and water.

Soldiers have blindfolded, handcuffed and thrown in an armored personnel carrier 3 American citizens, Jonathen Mello, Travis Lee Pugh, and David Yee. Other internationals are currently sitting in the road, still trying to block the bulldozer from tearing up the road.
