A group of Palestinians has reached the base camp of Mount Everest، flying the Palestinian flag in celebration. Twenty-seven Palestinians reached the base camp of Mount Everest – located in the Himalayas between Nepal and Tibet – on Tuesday.
The trek was organized by Climb for Palestine which، in its own words، “aims to raise funds for charities in Palestine [by] arranging and participating in activities and events […] such as hiking، rock climbing and mountaineering.”
This is not the first fundraising activity that Climb for Palestine has organized. Earlier this year several group members took part in the Palestine Marathon in the occupied West Bank، while last year they climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania، again raising the Palestinian flag at the summit.
Al-Arabiya TV Channel broadcasted a report about this the trek.
