Far from them, West Bank (2012)


Touristic tour of Hebron

Just few minutes of tour to see the old city of Hebron. After no more that half hour, soldiers and tourists, Jewish tourists, disappear into the gate of the settlement.
In the city of Hebron, every Saturday, American tourists come to watch the old part of the city and the chief Rabbi leads the group under the constant watch of more than 30 soldiers.
Soldiers are constantly on alert, patrol the street and move back the group any possible source of risk.
The Palestinian close the store and wait that the Jewish people return in the settlement that divide the city like a blade. 
“Welcome Palestine” is written on the wall in many place of the city. Someone wants joking.
