  • Description

    MORE THAN TWENTY-THOUSAND PEOPLE OF ALL NATIONALITY ARE TAKING PART IN THIS YEAR'S "THREE DAY MARCH" THROUGH ISRAEL TO JERUSALEM. SEVEN-HUNDRED FOREIGNERS JOINED LOCAL MARCHERS IN STEPPING OUT ON THE LONG JOURNEY WHICH BEGAN TODAY (MONDAY, APRIL 14TH) AT BETH EL, NORTH OF RAMALLAH.

    COMING FROM GREAT BRITAIN, DENMARK, SWITZERLAND, FINLAND, HOLLAND AND THE UNITED STATES, THE FOREIGNERS COMPRISED THE LARGEST NUMBER EVER TO TAKE PART IN THE NOW FAMOUS ANNUAL EVENT.

    FROM A TENT ENCAMPMENT OUTSIDE BETH EL, THE MARCHERS SET OFF ALONG THE RAMALLAH-NABLUS ROAD IN GROUPS OF TWENTY-FIVE. THE PREVIOUS RECORD OF PARTICIPANTS WAS TWO YEARS AGO WHEN EIGHTEEN-THOUSAND PEOPLE JOURNEYED THROUGH THE RUGGED COUNTRYSIDE. THIS YEAR HOWEVER, THE NUMBER HAS INCREASED SOMEWHAT BY THE PRESENCE OF SOLDIERS OF THE GADNA YOUTH, WHO ARE MARCHING FOR TWO DAYS ON SEPARATE ROUTES FROM HE MAIN CONTINGENT.

    THE MARCH WILL CULMINATE WITH A LAVISH PARADE THROUGH THE STREETS OF JERUSALEM OF WEDNESDAY (APRIL 15TH), REPLACING THE INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATIONS.
