Palestinians Living in Firing Zones


Living in dangerous areas.

by Stephen Lendman

Life in Occupied Palestine is hard enough. Imagine how much worse in firing zones.

According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA):

(1) Israel designated about 18% of West Bank land closed military zones, aka firing zones. It's one among other ways Israel steals land.

(2) About 5,000 Palestinians in 38 communities are affected. Most are Bedouins. Land they've lived on for generations was theirs in peace until 1948. Everything changed when Israel began stealing it. It's now used for military and other purposes.

(3) Over 80% of affected communities are in the Jordan Valley and Dead Sea area. It's called South Hebron Hills.
