Welcome to life under occupation in Hebron, Palestine

For those of you who may not be familiar, Hebron is the largest city in the West Bank and is home to around 200,000 Palestinians and 1,000 Israeli settlers. 

One of its biggest problems is that Israel has established a number of settlement points in and around its old city, which had traditionally served as the commercial center for the entire southern West Bank.

 Israeli law-enforcement and security forces have made the entire Palestinian population suffer in the process of protecting the illegal Israeli settlement
in the city. 

Israel has enacted a strict segregationist policy enforced by curfews, market closures, street closures and military checkpoints. Shuhada Street, where Abed lives, used to be the principal street for Palestinians
residents and businesses. It was a very active market place in the Palestinian city of Hebron/al Khaleel. Today, because Shuhada Street runs through
the Jewish settlement of Hebron, the street is closed to Palestinian movement and looks like a virtual ghost street, which only Israelis and tourists are allowed to access.
