South Hebron Hills
he closure is still in full swing and we did not enter Hebron
We drove to A-tuwani. The military presence is less on Route 317 but at the most important entrance to Carmill and Kawasis a blockade of dirt was raised overnight. We must follow this up.
At Tuwani on the ground floor of Nasser’s home, which also serves as a local art center which his wife tries to run, we also see a shop of local handiwork. Women are sitting and weaving by the ancient traditional method and are photographed today by an organization from Ramallah for Unesco.
Nasser and his son told us about last night's events. A man who lives across the road in front of the entrance to the village came with a truck loaded with building materials to do work on his home. (Area C). Instantly, settlers and Regavim arrived and tried to steal the truck and equipment. Of course, soldiers and DCOs also arrived.After many hours, the equipment was returned to its owners and the settlers removed
This happens very often in this area.
Nasser wants us to organize a meeting of all the organizations together so that he can describe in a concentrated way their struggles (fascinating to me) and how they can be strengthened.
I would love to take the challenge and help them.
They ask that we help them by publishing their problems in English as well.
I am glad that Leah Shakdiel has now more time and and is ready to enter into this affair
We returned via Route 60.
At the southern entrance to Hebron under Beit Hagai settlement are posts on both sides of the road which are manned by soldiers.
