Chromogenic print, 100 x 150 cm

Islamic cemetery, al-Shuhada Street, Hay al-Yahud/Avraham Avinu settlement, Old Town, northern part of the city, al-Khalil, December 25, 2016.

View from al-Rahma hill. Jews have free access to al-Shuhada Street; Palestinian access is limited to residents who are registered by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) at the checkpoint, but only on foot. They have to renew their registration every year. All Palestinian shops in al-Shuhada Street and in Hay al-Yahud/Avraham Avinu settlement are closed by Israeli military order. Most of the Palestinian houses are deserted due to constant harassment by the IDF and settlers.
