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.

Military Invades al-Khalil


Pictured here: Soldiers interrupt a peaceful demonstration in H1.  They rush at the protestors in large numbers firing tear gas, stun grenades, and live ammunition.  They invade every street and alley connected to the intersection forcing people to run to escape the chaos.

 A Child's Story 

 
Pictured here: Adding to the chaos and violence, the Israeli soldiers indiscriminately arrest people.  Here, a young boy is arrested and taken to the military base at Bab al-Baladyeh. The soldiers grab anyone they can catch, brutally beating Palestinian men and boys while dragging them to a checkpoint or police station where they are held, handcuffed, blindfolded, and often later interrogated.

Reunion 

 
Pictured here: The Israeli military rush into a family home, arrest a young boy and beat him on the head with their guns. Finally, the boy is released without charge and admitted to hospital. Here we see the boy's mother embracing him at the checkpoint after his release.
