Al-Akhbar Management

These moments were captured over the past week in different areas all over the West Bank including Ramallah, Qalandia checkpoint, Bilin, and Nabi Saleh. Since the Israeli operation began in Gaza, citizens of the West Bank have been active in demonstrating their solidarity and support for their fellow Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. Daily life has been punctuated by protests and clashes as Palestinians keep the struggle for freedom alive in the midst of tragedy.
