AT-TUWANI REFLECTION: The school run

Imagine the scene: a group of children walking to school.  Some of the older children are jostling and pushing each other, joking together; the younger ones are walking quietly, hand in hand.  It could be a scene from almost anywhere in the world.  

But this is Palestine, under Israeli military occupation.  The children are Palestinian.  Two Israeli soldiers walk in front of the small group and an army jeep follows behind.
