Hebron, South Hebron Hills
A photo story of the occupation.
On road 60 as far as Hebron between the hours of 8 to 9 in the morning a police car which seems to be looking for cars of which the license plates have been stolen.
An army jeep next to Deir Razih. There is also one next to the Kaliglis.
Children are seen running away. The solders guard the road from the throwing of stones.
The last Shabbat was the Shabbat of the Life of Sarah affair. These are the Jewish "exceptional days" and 35,000 people were guests of Kiryat Arba and Hebron.
The Palestinians are already trained and they have put themselves under curfew. The few children walking around in the street were shouted at and beaten by the settlers.
In the pictures below:
The gate near Kiryat Arba and the Worshipers' Route. Cars can not pass and he two women with babies in their arms are walking there. They too tell us about the curfew they imposed on themselves last Shabbat.
The tent which was built for all the visitors is being taken down. It was built on the parking lot of the Cave of the Patriarchs.
The pharmacy checkpoint.
An old man goes up the stairs of the House of Contention. On the Sabbath the settlers harassed him as he went up and down to bring goods to his grocery store. As is so well known the Zion road is an apartheid road and Palestinians are not allowed to drive there even if all they want to do is bring merchandise to their stores.
Border Policemen arrested children who threw stones near the entrance to the Tomb of the Patriarchs. We met them at the checkpoint trying to find out where the children were taken. They did not get an answer so if I went to find out. I came back with the answer that the children were taken to the police station in Giv'at Ha'avot and that they would be released soon. When I got out of the police, the children's family members had already disappeared .... scared and in despair.
The end of the scenes of the day.
