Hebron (capital)

Stop the Wall is organizing three demonstrations to add to the weekly Friday activities against the Wall in the different villages:

The demonstration takes place to commemorate the massacre of the people of al Sammou, south of Hebron. Exactly 45 years ago, on November 13 1966 Israeli forces raided this village, destroyed 125 houses, the village clinic and school as well as 15 houses in a neighboring village. 18 people were killed and 54 wounded.

 7 people have been killed in the past five days in the Hebron province and in East Jerusalem. With the ending of the Aid celebration, the climate in the West Bank seems to raise up to level it reached last year in the same period. Since October 2015, 227 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli occupation forces.

                                                                                                                              

Among the many faces of Occupation, daily demolitions play a relevant and devastating role of land theft and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people. Susiya is only one of the many examples: a village whose people live in constant fear of being ejected from their land and deported, as has already happened three times in the last thirty years. This policy is part of the two key overall plans of the Israeli administration: The ‘Relocation Plan’ aimed at clearing Area C in the West Bank from the Palestinian communities in order to prepare it for definitive annexation, as well as the Israeli master plan to ‘Judaize’ Jerusalem, the Galilee and the Naqab and the confiscation of large parts of the West Bank.

Tuesday 5th of June 2012 marked the 45th anniversary of the Naksa, the day that Israel occupied the Palestinian West Bank and Gaza Strip, the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula and the Syrian Golan Heights. To mark this anniversary marches were arranged in various locations across the still occupied Palestinian Territories.

 

The grassroots Palestinian Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign and the BNC organized a documentary presentation about the Israeli apartheid regime in Hebron and Bethlehem cities.
Mohammad Basheer, youth activist in Stop the Wall campaign and the independent youth movement (Herak Shababi), said that the activities started there and will continue in Ramallah, Salfit, Tulkarem, Tobas, Nablus added to the weekly protests in the west bank.

Tamir or Abu Taleeb (The Father of Taleeb) is shoemaker and lives in the H2 are of Hebron's Old City.

I met Tamir and his family the day when a group of young Palestinian and foreign volunteers met in his lands to harvest olives.

Hebron district is located some 30 kilometers south to Jerusalem. The City of Hebron, the capital of the district is one of the biggest in the West Bank, as it has some 170,000 Palestinian inhabitants and some 400 settlers guarded by between 2,500 to 3,000 soldiers.

Hebron is fampuse, among other, for the quality of its kafyas. However, unfortunately it is also famouse for its Apartheid street.

Hebron, or Al-Khalil in Arabic, is the only city in the West Bank were settlers are in the center of the city, which has made of this place one with more tension in the area.

In the framework of a series of events organized by the Grassroots Campaign to Boycott Israeli Goods including participation from some national political figures and representatives of local youth groups, a mass march was held in the streets and supermarkets in the city of Hebron on Monday, August 15, 2011. Lifting of the organizers, waving of participants' banners, and chanting slogans urged citizens to boycott all goods and products from Israel.
