Hebron: A Besieged City

Hebron is a Palestinian city located in the southern West Bank, 30 km south of Jerusalem. It is the largest city in the West Bank and home to approximately 250,000 Palestinians and some 500-850 Jewish settlers concentrated in and around the Old City.

Since the Israeli occupation in 1967, settlements have been established in the heart of the Old City, rendering Hebron different from other cities of the West Bank: a divided city.

Yet Hebron is also home to resistance, of permanent unrest. 25 percent of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails are from Hebron.
