In the H2 section of Hebron movement is restricted, street by street, for tens of thousands of Palestinians as settlers slowly take over more land.
Stuck between an urban settlement and various streets that Palestinians are banned from walking on is a family home. There a deaf mother lives with her son who was born with one arm.
A group of, mostly Israeli, volunteers spent the day helping to clean up the yard, which is their only pathway home.
Settlers have made a habit of throwing garbage and rocks. Many settlers and students visiting the settlements walked by, vocally wondering why these volunteers would be helping "the Arabs".
The work goes on.
Somebody smashed the family's sewage pipe. Sewage was pouring out onto the path, their only route home. Volunteers worked together to fix it.
Next to this Palestinian family's home is a settlement and a street sign. On that street sign are stickers. One of those stickers says "Kahane was right". Kahane was a Jewish supremacist and leader of a terrorist organization.
This is a traumatic place, but this was a long day that ended in a successful clean up.
