Bad in Hebron. Bad. Bad. Bad.
It’s quiet today. No people outdoors.
The school year in the Palestinian Authority will already begin for some of the children next week, on August 16, and for others on August 24.
We spoke with a group of teachers of the Cordoba School (who wouldn’t have their photos taken) – they told us about problems they encounter while crossing the Policeman Checkpoint and the Stairway Checkpoint on their way to school, and about the spirit of Covid that hovers over the children and the sense of unceasing siege because of the Israeli occupation. There are no tourists and moods are really down.
Things are bad in Hebron. My usual vigil-bellyache is worsening.
