Teenagers from the West Bank in Palestine will be visiting Llanidloes to share about their lives and experiences with people in the town.

The group of 14 and 15-year-old boys along with their two teachers will be in Llanidloes on Thursday, July 7.

People are welcome to listen to their stories at the Bailey Room in Llanidloes Community Centre from 6.30pm to 8.30pm where there will be food provided on a bring and share basis.

Organisers said the opportunity for people from the town to meet and hear the boys' stories promises to be a "fascinating and enjoyable" evening. There will be no entrance charge although donations will be gratefully accepted.

The teenagers and teachers will also spend time with pupils at Llanidloes High School during their visit to Wales which has been organised by Camden Abu Dis Friendship Association.

The West Bank is home to nearly three million Palestinians and has been under military rule since Israel captured the territory in the 1967 Middle East war.

Palestinians want the West Bank to form the main part of their future state. The last serious peace talks broke down more than a decade ago, leaving no end in sight to Israel’s 55-year-old military rule.
