At Abda the  gate is still closed.

Near the Dura al-Fawwar junction we see that the wonderful agricultural plots where vegetables were sold until a few months ago straight from the field. The evil occupation expelled them every time as if people who wanted to make a living are dangerous. Two months ago piles of dirt were put down so that the farmers would not have  access to the their lands.

Now we saw that the barriers have been strengthened and this simple encounter between the farmers and the buyers is avoided.

Why? So.

In Hebron, the Apartheid Wall near the Tomb of the Patriarchs has been reinforced and painted green to brown. 

We went to meet Zidan Sharabati, after difficult events he and his family had gone through with the settlers and the army last Thursday 23.19.19. Mufid Sharabati was injured and taken to the hospital.

Zidan says that after the fight, even though the army intervened, the settlers sat defiantly in the doorway of his house all night long.

Hebron is always desperate.
