NAVIGATING CHECKPOINTS

 

Pictured here: A young Palestinian girl walking by herself, navigating past one of Israel’s mechanisms of apartheid. At this military checkpoint in Hebron, Palestinians face the constant threat of detention and physical violence. Since December at this checkpoint, the Israeli border police have unleashed hundreds of tear gas canisters and dozens of sound grenades – mostly during periods of time when kids are walking to school.

MILITARY INCURSIONS

 

Pictured here: Israeli border police roaming around the Old City of Hebron, detaining Palestinians on the streets and in Freedom Park, thus restricting freedom of movement and intimidating residents.

FORGOTTEN ID

 

Pictured here: Israeli soldiers detained these happy young men for over two and half hours because one of them, Ahmad, did not have his ID. The soldiers at first allowed us to stand close, then forced us to leave and watch from down the street. Both were released, and Ahmad was told to appear in court later in the week.

BREAK AND ENTER

 

Pictured here: Israeli soldiers help an Israeli archaeologist climb into the window of a Palestinian home. ‘Archaeology’ is one of many reasons used by Israel to steal buildings and land from Palestinians.

SCHOOLS CLOSE EARLY

 

Pictured here: Israeli soldiers fired seven rounds of tear gas at Palestinian school children at Salimeh Checkpoint. Several schools let out early because of the strength of the tear gas and because soldiers stayed in the area, intimidating children.

LIVE AND LAUGH

 

Pictured here: We can never forget to live and laugh in the face of oppression, for if we don’t – the oppressors have won.
