Dura-Al Fawwar Junction, Hebron, South Hebron Hills
We were asked to meet a person from the South Hebron Hills, whose attorney has been trying to “unban” him from his ‘security black list’, after some phoning we succeeded.
In Hebron we wished to meet Z. and M. in order to hear about the goings-on on Shuhada Street, following what Michal was told several days ago (please read Michal’s report).
The two soldiers at the inspection shack allowed us to proceed, we met them but couldn’t speak because they were busy organizing a protest over the stairs leading up to Cordoba School. This event was attended by many participants of all ages, with banners and flags and a journalist accompanied by a photographer. Within minutes many soldiers arrived below, followed by numerous settlers, and mutual shouting resounded. One of the settlers, fluent in Arabic, was heard yelling roughly for about half an hour. At some point we left by a back road, as some of the settlers (Ofer Ohana among them) were already partway up the stairs and confrontation was quite close.
On our way back we saw the entrance to Al Fawwar opened, as was the entrance to Deir Razih.
