BETHLEHEM, December 24, 2012 (WAFA) – Palestinian Christians who follow the
Gregorian calendar Monday began Christmas’ celebrations with thousands of
them arriving in the holy city of Bethlehem.

Since the first hours of the morning, Palestinians and foreigners from all
over the West Bank arrived to Bethlehem to celebrate Christmas Eve in the
birthplace of Jesus Christ.

Hundreds of Police members were stationed at the main roads of the city to
organize the visitors and maintain security.

Red Crescent director Abdul-Halim Jaafari told WAFA that a team of 15
paramedics, seven ambulances and a mobile clinic with 100 volunteers will be
on standby to help if any emergency arises.
