AL-KHALIL (HEBRON): A week in photos, 18-24 October 2016

 
 

Smile?

Pictured here: Israeli border police tried to intimidate CPT team members by taking close-up photos and blocking them from photographing. The CPT team was monitoring one of many settler tours taking place in the old city during the religious holidays.

Interrupting Normal Life 

Pictured here: A number of settler tours took place during the Jewish holidays in Bab Izaweyeh, an area under the control of the Palestinian Authority. The tours interrupted a normal day in the main shopping area: The Israeli Army forced shops to close and prevented Palestinians from accessing their homes from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Soldier: “This is my land”

Pictured here: Israeli soldiers told a Palestinian family, who had just finished harvesting their olives and were enjoying a picnic after the work day, that they should have asked for permission to harvest on their own land. The soldier told a CPTer, when questioned about their uninvited and armed presence, that “this is my land and this is my gun.”

Another Blocked Street

Pictured here: Israeli soldiers blocked another street during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot for no apparent reason, further restricting movement of Palestinians in the area. It is difficult to predict what other restrictions will take place during this time.

Resistance 

Pictured here:  Israeli soldiers and settlers invaded Bab Izaweyeh, a shopping area in a Palestinian controlled zone, during the Jewish holiday. Soldiers told owners to close their shops, but this shopkeeper refused to close his store.

Commemoration 

Pictured here: The Hebron Defense Committee held a memorial for member Hashem Azzeh, a peace activist from the Tel Rumeida neighbourhood, who was killed as a result of excessive teargas inhalation last year. HDC sent a message in solidarity with Hashem’s family and other residents of Tel Rumeida, who are surrounded by settlers. Photo Credit: Muftah.

Home? 

Pictured here: A 50-year-old Israeli settlement lies in the distance.  According to the Geneva Conventions and numerous U.N. resolutions, all Israeli settlements are illegal under international law.
