Shortly after the Meitar crossing, we will not tell you exactly where, we follow with our eyes  the passage of many illegal workers trying their luck to cross over to work  in Israel. If we know where they are so do the army and the plice. It seems to us not coincidental that the day after so many people were disqualified and their permits taken from them and no longer given the precious right to work with a permit that so many people are able to cross the dividing wall and enter Israel to work. It seems that the Israeli authorities are doing their very best so as to make the lives of the Palestinians miserable.

On road 60 at the bus stations under the settlements the protection has been changed and this is what it looks like now.

In the picture above, the passage from the village of Kaligles to Hebron. This is the last village on Route 60 that remained blocked and to get to Hebron they have to pass through dirt roads through Yata. The Hebron municipality appealed to the Israeli court to lift the barrier and won. After they won, the residents removed the blockage and at the same time demonstrated the danger faced  by the people crossing the road. Within six months 11 people were hurt and wounded and 6 killed). The army dispersed the demonstration with tear gas and returned the blockage to its previous place. We heard the story from the two people in the picture. 

Hebron is generally abandoned today. Hardly any Palestinians in the street.

We  went up the road to Tel Rumeida and these are the military names which have been given to the two gatesinfo-icon. One gate does  not work and for the moment we were prisoners ij the ghetto of Tel Rumeida.

Between the  House of the Patriarchs and the Al Fakhiya Girls School stands a house that the army occasionally rents for its needs and is called The Captain's House. 

This report is dedicated to Breaking the Silence.
