151227 red line

(Christian Peacemaker Team) December 19, 2015 – During the week the Israeli military painted two sets of white lines between the Ibrahimi Mosque and the Qitoun/209 checkpoint. These are lines behind which soldiers require Palestinians to wait for ID checks or body or bag searches. The soldiers are presumably looking for potential weapons. Meantime, Israeli settlers cross these lines freely, sometimes with an automatic rifle very much in evidence.
