Pictured here: The Israeli occupation is building a new setup for the checkpoint at the Ibrahimi Mosque restricting Palestinians going to pray.

New land controlled

Pictured here: Settlers are reinstalling the tents at the same place they used to be in 2008-2013, over a Palestinian land in Al-Buweira area next to the settlement of Givat Harsina.


Pictured here: Palestinian children playing in the Old City of Hebron during an Israeli soldier’s patrol.

Show me your ID   

 Pictured here: Israeli soldiers in Bab Al-Baledeya stopped twenty-one Palestinians and forced them to show their IDs. This kind of practice from Israeli soldiers is just to make their presence felt.


The gates are closed well! 

Pictured here: An Israeli armed settler is protected by Israeli soldiers, who allow him to enter Palestinian homes and check the gates and road blocks in the Old City on the side of Shuhada Street, which have restricted the movement of Palestinians since the 2000.

ِAge 15-30 you are out!   

Pictured here: Israeli border police at the Ibrahimi Mosque Checkpoint prevent Palestinians in the age range of 15-30 from going through the checkpoint to pray or reach their homes. The Palestinians in this age range need to go around the area, which takes more than fifteen minutes.

Summer Sweet

Pictured here: Abu Zaid a Palestinian from the old city making a local type of sweet called “halabi”. He has lived all of his life in the old city of Hebron—an example of “Sumud” or “resistance” in the area

Privilege of movement

Basic freedom of movement in Palestine—walking to the grocery store, driving to visit family, or flying internationally—depends on your nationality, race, and religion. As a Palestinian, you are denied these rights as others in your country move freely.
