Prayers for Peacemakers 21 October 2020 Palestine

In Hebron H2 and South Hebron Hills, the Israeli government selects specific days and hours when they allow owners to access their lands. This year, due to the lack of coordination between the Palestinian and Israeli governments, many farmers will not have access to their land to report any violations. Also, because of Covid-19 restrictions, local volunteers may be unable to gather with the families to harvest their olives on the selected days. Settler harassment has increased this year, and landowners are worried about the violence that might occur with the lack of protective presence and observers.

CPT INTERNATIONAL | Lent 2020: Take Action for Peace

Our #CPTJusticeJourney began at the start of Lent, on February 26th. Since then much has changed as communities across the world respond to the spread of the Coronavirus. While Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) have suspended physical accompaniment across programs, we continue to seek out ways to be present, adapting to online strategies of advocacy and accompaniment in response to our partners’ needs.

Prayers for Peacemakers, 18 March 2020  Palestine

Please hold the people of Palestine in your hearts and minds.  In particular, we ask you to remember the following young lives so cruelly and unnecessarily cut short by in February:  Salah Zakarneh, age 17 years, killed by a bullet through his chest from a Palestinian Authority Security Forces’ gun in the village of Qabatiya near Nablus, and Mohammad Salman Toameh Al-Hadad age 16 years, also killed by a bullet through his chest, but from an Israeli soldier’s gun, in the city of Hebron. Please remember their families as they mourn and begin to grieve for the loss of their sons and brothers.
