[Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA: The reference to "old city" without relating
conditions to the vibrant Hebron metropolis that is the center of
Palestinian commerce and industry is designed to leave foreigners with the
impression the small area in question IS all of Hebron. TO get an idea of
how relatively small H2 (where the claim is that 15,000 reside) is, already
back in 2007 - according to official Palestinian statistics - there were
163,146 living in Hebron (Al Khalil).]

Hebron activists launch campaign to get rid of settlers in old city

HEBRON, February 9, 2017 (WAFA – PLO news afgency) – Palestinian activists
in the southern West Bank city of Hebron launched on Thursday a campaign to
get rid of several hundred fanatic Israeli settlers who live in the old city
under heavy army protection and who have turned life of Palestinians living
there into hell.

The campaign, launched from a school inside the old city to mark the 23rd
anniversary for the Ibrahimi mosque massacre when a Jewish settler gunned
down a dozen Palestinians while performing dawn prayers at the mosque, aims
to end the military siege imposed on the old city, according to Mufeed
Sharabati, one of the activists.

He said the military checkpoints around the old city, which is under full
Israeli military control and referred to as H2 where several hundred
settlers live among 15,000 Palestinians, “have turned the old city into a
ghetto prison.”

Under the campaign title “Dismantle the Ghetto off Hebron,” the activists
said many people have left the old city fearing for the life of their
children from Israeli army and settlers and after life has become very
difficult for them.

Another activist, Muhannad Jaabari, said the campaign aims to end the misery
of the people who live in the old city and who cannot have their families to
visit them. He said efforts will be exerted to help them remain steadfast in
their homes.

The campaign includes Tel Rumeida, Shuhada Street and all the old city and
surrounding areas.
