Hebron (20 Nov 2015) — posted on 18 Sep 2016
We came back to Hebron completely overwhelmed by what had happened in Nabi Saley. So we decided to help out with ISM where we could.
We went olive picking with Idris, a 65 year old who gets harassed by the IDF when he picks olives from trees that have on his land for generations! And we did "school runs", which basically means keeping watch at the school entrance when school is about to start. A lot of children travel between H1 into H2 and more often than not are welcomed by soldiers with tear gas.
