South Hebron Hills - demolition of vegetable stalls at Meitar Crossing
The children were also released early today. A strike. Most of the children and the people do not know the reason. Maybe they do not want to tell us. Finally we got an answer: This time because of a violent incident in Jenin. Not related to the army.
While we were there, there was nothing new.
On the way back, there was a traffic jam at the Dura - Al Fawwar junction.
Because the IDF brought in its best heavy tools to pile dirt piles along the road. Next to it are plots with wonderful vegetables that people grow there trying to make a living from it and built road side stalls including green onions, cabbage, cauliflower, tomato, parsley which they remove from the ground, wash and sell. There are no more delicious vegetables than these. But the IDF decided evidently that vegetables are dangerous.
So tractors which are guarded both from the front and the back block this possibility by stacking dirt and demolishing the stands.
What do they care that all these young farmers are left without a living. What do you care if a crossing which is important to the traffic is blocked for a long time and delays dozens of people on their way forward and back.
The foolish and iron arm of the Israeli government has continued to foster hatred and despair which continues to grow from generation to generation of young people who have no future and no dreams.
This continues to secure a lot of livelihood for our security forces.
