BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian activists on Tuesday garnished a Christmas tree in Bethlehem's Manger Square with leftover Israeli tear gas canisters and stun grenades from routine clashes in the city.

Head of the independent commission for human rights in the south, Farid al-Atrash, said decorating the tree with remnants from Israel's routine suppression of non-violent protests is part of a Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign to show the world the reality of Israel's 47-year military occupation.

"The world has to move to save the Palestinian people and hold the occupation accountable for it's crimes against unarmed people in Palestine," al-Atrash said.
