AL-KHALIL (HEBRON): A week in photos 5-11 April 2015

Below is a sampling of the Palestine team’s best photos for the week of 5-11 April 2015.  Life in the Old City of Hebron has its daily traumas, but also its moments of beauty.

 

BLOCKADED

CHILDHOOD SEGREGATED

MOON RISE OVER HEBRON

 

“I have many memories. I was born as everyone is born.
In the deep horizon of my word, I have a moon, a bird’s sustenance, and an immortal olive tree. I have lived on the land long before swords turned man into prey.
I belong there.”
-from I Belong There by Mahmoud Darwish, Palestinian poet
