At-Home with Gila Svirsky

30 June 2001
Subject: Brief update about al-Khader


Many of you have asked for an update about al-Khader, in the aftermath of yesterday’s demonstrations:

The curfew was lifted and the soldiers left the two Palestinian homes that they had taken over. Adnan, the 17-year-old, is still in the hospital with a very bad leg wound from a high-velocity bullet. There were no other injuries at this action. In other words, things have returned to “normal” – normal being a closure on the village and the surrounding towns. People can go in or out by foot, but not by vehicle. This means no easy access to other areas, and that the farm equipment cannot get to their fields on the other side of the checkpoint. And the new settlement “outpost” still stands.

Clearly there will be further demonstrations and protests at al-Khader, including a workcamp scheduled for July 1-5. To participate, contact George Rishmawi, Huwaida Arraf or Liad Kantorowicz
