their guns. Mohammed subsequently fainted. The military then covered
his body and left him where he had fallen. After a crowd had gathered

Mohammed was
severely shaken by the experience, and was awaiting the results of an

place at the 56 check point which sits between Shuhada Street, under
full Israeli military control, and Bab iZeweyya, under Palestinian
civil control.

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
