WATCH: Living in the looming shadow of expulsion

‘Firing Zone 918’ in the south Hebron hills is home to around 1,300 Palestinians, most of whom live in caves or shacks and make their living from agriculture and shepherding. Since 1999, the residents have been living under threat of demolition, dispossession, and eviction after the IDF has declared their land a fire zone. On Wednesday, residents of one village will head to the High Court of Justice to appeal the decision to expel them from their homes.

Before you go...

A lot of work goes into creating articles like the one you just read. And while we don’t do this for the money, even our model of non-profit, independent journalism has bills to pay.

+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters. If each of our readers becomes a supporter of our work, +972 Magazine will remain a strong, independent, and sustainable force helping drive the discourse on Israel/Palestine in the right direction.

      So grateful for Social TV, but wish their broadcasts could reach a much wider audience. I continue to be disgusted beyond measure with the zionist state and the abject misery it has forced upon the indigenous Palestinian people.

        Carmen, I couldn’t agree with you more. If videos such as this were shown on every major news channel in the world, especially in the US and Britain, people would get an honest view at just some of what Israel has been doing to the Palestinians for close to half a century.
