The following is a list of the checkpoints that are located in Area H2 or are separated between Area H1 and H2.

Kapisha neighborhood 2 checkpoints, Givat Haharsina, Givat Ha’avot, Beit Ha-Meriva, Curve 160, Pharmacy, Tel Rumeida, Chabad Cemetery, Archaeological Park, Tarpat Checkpoint, Jilber Checkpoint, Rachel and Leah House, Avraham Avinu Neighborhood, Beit Hadassah, Wholesale Market, The entrance barrier to the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the parking lot, the checkpoint opposite the al-Fahaya school, the checkpoint at the entrance to the Cave of the Patriarchs, and three more roadblocks from the Casbah to the Tomb of the Patriarchs.

In addition to the checkpoints, there are a lot of roadblocks that we have not counted and Palestinians are not permitted to be in their cars in H2.

At any given moment a Palestinian can be detained in his daily life and he is perceived as an enemy in advance.

Just imagine your life like this.

And that’s what we saw today near the entrance to the house of Rachel and Leah. Another checkpoint was set up there.
