The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) prevented on Wednesday holding an event for the International Women’s Day in occupied Jerusalem.
The director of Women for Life and Democracy association, Zuhour Abu Mayyala, said that the IOA abruptly prevented organizing the women’s event based on a decision issued by the Israeli Minister of Public security, Gilad Erdan.
Abu Mayyala affirmed that the decision is “groundless”, especially that the event is a women’s cultural event that doesn’t have any political nature.
In a statement to Quds Press news agency, Abu Mayyala said that she was subjected to interrogation by the Israeli Intelligence on the event which was supposed to mark the International Women’s Day and include recreational and cultural activities to honor Jerusalemite women and “draw a smile on their faces.”
