Al-Sahleh Street, al-Qaitoun neighborhood, Old Town, al-Khalil, October 20, 2016.
The Abu al-Rish checkpoint located in al-Sahleh Street, south of al-Haram al-Ibrahimi (Abraham's Mosque/Cave of the Patriarchs), is named after the Abu al-Rish mosque and shrine next to it. The checkpoint separates the Abu Sunaina and al-Qaitoun neighborhoods from the neighborhoods of the Old Town. It also separates the neighborhood from the oldest school in al-Khalil, the al-Ibrahimeyeh School, and from al-Hajariya Girls School. Palestinians are allowed to pass only on foot. The infrastructure of the checkpoint was expanded in July 2016, and since it reopened the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have prohibited Palestinians between the ages of sixteen and thirty-four from passing.
