Palestine Projects

About CPT Palestine

CPT Palestine is a faith-based organization that supports Palestinian-led, nonviolent, grassroots resistance to the Israeli occupation and the unjust structures that uphold it.  By collaborating with local Palestinian and Israeli peacemakers and educating people in our home communities, we help create a space for justice and peace.

We maintain a project in the southern West Bank city of Hebron (Al-Khalil in Arabic).

Many Voices, One Cause

Pictured here: Palestinians from numerous political parties gathered in large numbers in al-Khalil to non violently protest the U.S. Administration's contentious recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Similar protests have been organised in many cities across the globe in support of Palestine.

Excessive Use of Force

Pictured here: Over the last several days, the Israeli occupying forces (IOF) have invaded Palestinian controlled H1 in al-Khalil on a daily basis. They forcibly close shops during business hours and violently drive the general public out of the streets. The IOF uses excessive force such as stun grenades, live ammunition, rubber bullets, and blinding tear gas as seen in this photo. The presence of the military in Palestinian Authority-controlled H1 is provocative and creates a hostile environment.

Occupying Generations 

Pictured here: Every morning in the Salaymeh neighbourhood, this mother walks her son to the checkpoint that blocks his path to school, waiting for the bus to arrive on the other side. How many generations of Palestinians in al-Khalil will have to walk through checkpoints to get to school?

Prayers for Peacemakers, 15 November 2017

Prayers for Peacemakers, 15 November 2017

From Christian Peacemaker Teams in Al-Khalil / Hebron, Palestine:

"In the spirit of hope, we pray for peace.

We pray for the torn and divided peoples,
for refugees and uprooted families,
for all living in camps and for those who assist them,
and for all who have been bereaved, injured and traumatized.

Especially at this time, we pray for all who suffer in the midst of renewed conflict and attack.

We pray for Israelis living with the threat of rocket fire, for Palestinians in the West Bank subjected to the violation of their civil liberties and human rights and living under the constraints of military occupation and settler harassment.

We pray for
the people of Gaza, living under blockade and repeated military bombardment, adding fear to the misery of poverty and want.

In particular we pray for children and young people caught up in terror beyond their understanding or control.

Multiple Home Raids

 
Pictured here: After it was alleged an Israeli child was hit by a rock by a Palestinian whilst swimming in Abraham's Well, Israeli Forces conducted house to house raids in the Carantina neighbourhood, adjacent to Tel Rumeida. Over 60 soldiers stormed Palestinian homes with families present, breaking down doors and in some cases remaining in the houses for over an hour. Frightened children looked on unaware as to why the Israeli soldiers were present.
