Open letter calls for Canada to speak out about Masafer Yatta

Over 1,000 residents, many of them children, living in eight Palestinian villages in the Masafer Yatta area of the West Bank face imminent eviction from their homes because Israel has claimed the area as an army firing zone. A new letter signed by CFSC Clerk Vince Zelazny says it’s imperative that Canada speak out on this issue. The letter requests that Robin Wettlaufer, Canada’s representative to the Palestinian Authority, travel to Masafer Yatta as soon as possible and report on the situation there. It notes,

“Canada’s voice could make a difference.” Read the open letter. Learn about CFSC's hopes for a just peace in Israel/Palestine.
