Israeli cities impose beach apartheid on Palestinians | The Electronic Intifada

Women and children play on a beach in the sea

Three Israeli coastal cities are being slammed by a civil rights group for effectively banning Palestinians from their beaches. Hadera, Netanya and Akka – known in English as Acre – are guilty of “apartheid initiatives that express a goal of achieving racial segregation,” said a lawyer for the group Adalah. Video shot by journalist Rafat Aker last week shows a busload of Palestinian men on an apparent day trip from the city of Jenin being denied access to the beach by police and local authorities. You can watch the full video in a mixture of Arabic and Hebrew below.
