Binyamin Citizens’ Committee: Rawabi will connect Jenin to Hebron.
Settlers who believe a Palestinian state is being unilaterally built in their backyard plan to march on Thursday afternoon, to protest against what will soon be the new Palestinian city of Rawabi.
Rawabi is 9 km. northwest of Ramallah, 25 km. south of Nablus and 20 km. north of Jerusalem.
Avishay Mizrachi of the neighboring Ateret settlement said that from his community, he can see bulldozers working seven days a week.
“It’s an impressive pace,” Mizrachi said.
Rawabi, which will be under the auspices of the Palestinian Authority, is expected to house more than 40,000 people. It will have its own commercial center, a hospital and a movie theater.
