Dress rehearsal

After a three-month break from leading weekly settler tours through the Old City, the settlers who usually conduct the tour, along with their heavily armed military escort, did a walk through of their typical route. CPT anticipates the tours will resume this Saturday.

Routine detention along the way

During their walk through the Old City, the settlers indicated their suspicion about a particular 19-year-old Palestinian they saw along the way. The border police proceeded to detain the young man for a ten-minute interrogation out of view inside the military gate at Bab al-Baledeya.

Segregation Central

Palestinians gather in front of Checkpoint 56 in front of Al Shuhada street to protest the establishment of a closed military zone in H2. This nonviolent sit-in demonstration was organized by Youth Against Settlements whose main office is located inside the segregated zone.

Murad Palestina, a worker with Youth Against Settlements, whose main office has been closed since the Tel Rumeida neighborhood was declared a closed military zone, wears the number that the Israeli military has assigned to him as a resident within the zone. “To the occupiers we’re numbers, not human beings,” he said.

Free Palestine!

The face of one of CPT’s close friends reminds us exactly why.
