Israeli Soldiers Prevent Volunteers from Disinfecting Old Town in Hebron

Israeli soldiers on Tuesday prevented Palestinian volunteers from disinfecting the old town in Hebron (Al-Khalil) and from educating the local population on the coronavirus pandemic.

Local activist Muhannad Jabari told the Palestinian news agency WAFA that the Israeli soldiers prevented the volunteers from spraying the Palestinian neighborhoods with disinfectants.

Jabari added the soldiers forced the volunteers to leave the area without completing their mission.

More than 30,000 Palestinians live in the Israeli-controlled section of Hebron, known as H2, amidst several hundred fanatic settlers protected by a large Israeli army force.

Israeli forces and Jewish settlers routinely harass Palestinians in the occupied territories through harming and killing civilians, demolishing homes, poisoning livestock, vandalizing property and other forms of violence.

  1. As a Jewish person with family living in Haifa, I want to express my horror that volunteers are not permitted to finish their disinfecting of the Gaza area and their educating the populace as to the severity of COVID 19 and the virulent nature of it’s passing from one to many. This disease threatens all of us, no matter our ethnicity and the only way to defeat it at all is to keep it from passing onto surfaces and from one to another. The hospitals in gaza are bombed and it is an outdoor prison camp. The Israeli soldiers preventing the volunteers’ work are harming themselves and Israel as well as just the people of Gaza.
