Daily Life in Hebron: Lost Two Babies due to Closure of Shuhada Street

February 25,2011 marks 17 years since the Baruch Goldstein massacre in which a settler murdered 29 Palestinian while praying in a mosque in Hebron. As a response to this event,the army introduced a policy of separation in Hebron,which included the closure of Shuhada Street. To this day,the street remains closed to Palestinians,thus severely restricting their freedom of movement within their own city.

Palestinian residents can't have family and friends over without an Israeli military permit which is sometimes denied or takes ages to process. You will learn more from the video
