BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Palestine Liberation Organization on Sunday released a video commemorating the Christmas holiday.
"Every Christmas Palestine celebrates the birth of one of its own, Jesus Christ," the video's Youtube description says.
The animation features a pope-like figure wandering Palestine's streets, passing Israeli checkpoints, barbed wire fences, and incidents of settler violence.
Pope Francis is scheduled to visit Palestine and Israel in May.
