Tarkumiya Crossing and Highway 35: Succulent figs are sold by the side of the road.

Shuyukh-Hebron intersection: a military jeep and two soldiers watching from each side.


At the Jaber family at the entrance to Kiryat Arba, the grape harvest is in full swing. There are no settler riots these days.

Zion axis:

At the Kiryat Arba exit towards the Jewish settlements inside Hebron, turn right on Zion Road. Then, immediately after that you take the left turn towards the Kiryat HaAvot neighbourhood (the residence of Minister Ben-Gvir), you stop at the dreaded Kafisha checkpoint, with the pillbox. The soldiers check if there are weapons. It is only possible to pass without a weapon.

In the opposite direction of the Zion axis, in the direction of the descent to the Cave of the Patriarchs, we stopped at Bassem's, whose house is opposite the House of Contention (which became the Beit HaShalom, Peace House). Bassem is very upset about the situation. It is said that they see many more settlers in the building and that they are more insolent. He says that his wife underwent surgery, and his son Ahmad plans to study medicine in Egypt.

Tel Rumeida: We stopped at Hamdi's from the grocery store located at the intersection at the end of the ascent to Tel Rumeida and the turn to the Jewish neighbourhood. He says that there are non-stop clashes between the settlers and the Palestinians. Mainly in the evening, the settlers gather at the intersection and attack Palestinian passers-by. Usually, the army intervenes in the end.

In the evening, Hamdi sent us videos of the riot that happened at that time with the settlers.
