151228 shabbat

(Christian Peacemaker Team) December 25, 2015 – As settlers from Kiryat Arba made their way to worship, Israeli soldiers stopped, ID checked, and body searched Palestinian men of all ages, including this young man with his horse. Before being allowed to proceed, the Palestinians were ordered to stand at a distance while groups of settlers passed. This young man was also told to walk with his horse rather than riding it.
