AL-KHALIL (HEBRON): A week in photos 12-18 May 2016

Occupation Captured

CPTnet | May 23, 2016

Laser Intrusion

Pictured here:  An Israeli border Police man shines the laser from his gun into the windows of Palestinian homes—even when it is clear there are children by the window—during a late night version of ‘the settler tour.’ This settler tour constitutes an obnoxious show of force, power and control as dozens of settlers ‘tour’ the streets of the Old City of Hebron, flanked by dozens of Israeli soldiers and Border Police.

Scattering Children

Pictured here:  Palestinian children run and scatter as an Israeli Border Policeman aims his gun at a handful of children who threw stones at checkpoints they must pass through. Hundreds of children have been heading to school through these checkpoints to sit their end of year exams this week. Israeli Border crossed the checkpoint into the heart of the Palestinian neighbourhood of Qitoun and aimed their guns at the children, scattering all of those attempting to access their right to education.

Taking a Stroll

Pictured here: A Palestinian girl walks to school behind a platoon of Israeli soldiers who had walked through Qitoun checkpoint to patrol the Palestinian neighbourhoods of Qitoun and Abu Sneineh, with the safety catches on their assault rifles off.

Teargas Training

Pictured here: An Israeli Border Policeman, training another in how to fire teargas, helps load a teargas gun. After this, the trainee fired six potent canisters at children en route to school, after a handful of boys threw stones. The hundreds of children in the area affected by the gas were heading to to their end of year exams. This image was taken as CPTers were standing with a Palestinian girl who began to cry out of fear, and due to her anxiety about being late for her exams.

Freedom Detained

Pictured here:  During the ‘settler tour,’ in which settlers and soldiers march through the streets of the Old City of Hebron, Israeli soldiers detain and restrict Palestinians on the streets until the group has passed through. Here, four Palestinian men are detained by Israeli Border Police, even after the settlers and their visitors had walked past.

The Waiting Game

Pictured here: Three Palestinian men are detained arbitrarily by Israeli Border Police. We place this image immediately after the one above intentionally to indicate the frequency with which Palestinians are detained on the streets as they attempt to go about their lives.

Smiling Against the Odds

Pictured here: Palestinian schoolboys smile as they head to school for their end of year exams. As they were doing so, Israeli Border Police checked Palestinian cars, without search warrants, and had been aiming their guns at children, as pictured above in this photo essay. If their exam was in resilience, these boys would pass with flying colours.

  1. Zionist state/official terrorism: the “norm” in Al-Khalil.

    Who WOULDN’T resist? That should be the question asked around the globe. But we still have collaborationists with Zioevil by the likes of the United Methodist Church, whose general-conference “Christian” attendees — I must read details — have just rejected the very mildest form of BDS that might help create some momentum to change the paradigm of racist demonism illustrated in these photos.
