AL-KHALIL (HEBRON): A week in photos, June 14-20, 2015

 

 

RAMADAN KAREEM

 

Pictured here: Ramadan has just started and the Old City of Hebron streets are filled with worshippers on their way to the Ibrahimiye mosque. The old market (souq) is vibrant and full of customers. This picture shows how the Old City was before Israeli Civil Administratio restrictions of the last couple decades and how it could be without the constant pressures of the Israeli Occupation that have led to its economic collapse. CPT Palestine wishes all a Blessed Ramadan.

Pinwheels for Peace

 

Pictured here: The NGO Rebuilding Alliance led an activity for the children of Susiya—a village in the South Hebron Hills under imminent threat of demolition by Israeli authorities. The activity consisted of drawing the meaning of peace in a square piece of paper that was turned into a pinwheel, and pinned on a pencil.
