AL-KHALIL (HEBRON) A week in photos  February 7-February 13

 

Education Disrupted

Pictured here: On two mornings this week, as children tried to pass through the checkpoints to go to school, soldiers delayed them by turning the turnstile on and off. This trapped the children on the inside of the checkpoint and even within the turnstile itself. On this particular morning over a dozen children were delayed after the turnstile was stopped on four separate occasions.

Sheep Check

Pictured here: Permanent road closures and the denial of access to roads, that are only open to Israeli vehicles, means these two men are forced to herd their sheep through one of the 18 checkpoints in H2. These restrictions to Palestinians impact upon all areas of life, such as access to ambulances, education, work and everyday tasks.

Honour ceremony at Cordoba 

Pictured here: A student award ceremony at Cordoba school was preceded by student performances. A particular highlight was a young boy who sung a beautiful solo. This ceremony was followed by a press conference organised by local Palestinians to promote the upcoming campaign "Dismantle the Ghetto: Take the Settlers Out of Hebron."

Building community, building partnerships

Pictured here: Members of Omm el-Khair in the South Hebron Hills gathered to reopen their new Community Center. This marked the 10th anniversary of the first demolition of Omm el-Khair, the most recent being in November 2016. The planting of 1,000 zatar trees was organised by the Omm el-Khair community in partnership with Center for Jewish Nonviolence and All That's Left, to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Bi'Shvat and the reopening of the Community Center.

Dabke!

Pictured here: The day in Omm al-Khair ended with traditional Bedouin Dabke dancing and lunch. Dabke is a traditional dance of Palestine, going back generations. It is danced by men and women, at weddings and other occasions. It's also a way to celebrate culture and community!
