Segregated and Unequal

Since 2015, the main street of Salaymeh and Gaith neighborhoods in Hebron have been divided down the middle into a Jewish side and Muslim side. In May 2017, Israel fenced in the entire neighborhood area, including the Palestinian side of the streets. They installed a door with a buzzer alarm that dos off any time someone opens the door. Each night at 11pm, as well as at the soldiers' discretion, the door is locked and the community imprisoned inside.   

Forty-eight families live under these live in the imprisoned neighborhood. Elderly and disabled must navigate rough terrain from the door to reach their homes and children must make their play spaces within the confines of the prison.

Dear Israeli Civil Administration, 

As people opposed to segregation and the imprisoning of communities, we demand you remove the fence around the Salaymeh and Gaith neighborhoods.

    I was in Hebron two months ago and stood in the same place that photo was taken. It’s all true and even worse than you would imagine.

    Just appalling. Like South Africa in the past. Appalling too that the international community and Governments do so little to even highlight, never mind combat, this dreadful treatment of Palestinians and the frequents abuses of their human rights. This has to change.

    Israel appears to have become the evil it deplored to begin with.

    I visited Hebron twice and have seen the segregation first hand. The behavior of the Israeli government is revolting.
