Dozens of right-wing activists were praying on Wednesday morning near the northern Ramallah neighborhood Bir Zeit, in protest of plans to build the new Palestinian city Rawabi nearby.

The activists objected the fact that Palestinians were allowed to build in the West Bank, while Jewish construction was currently prohibited as part of the 10-month moratorium Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declared. The activists also stated their intention to establish a new settlement to be named Be’er Zayit in northern Ramallah.
