End Israeli Segregation in Hebron - Open Shuhada Street
This petition had 569 supporters
We call on UN Secretary General António Guterres and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad to use all their influence and power to pressure the state of Israel to end Israeli segregation in Hebron and open Shuhada Street.
On February 25, 1994 Israeli settler Baruch Goldstein opened fire in the Ibrahimi mosque killing 29 Palestinians in worship. Since then, Shuahda Street, once the main street and marketplace in Hebron, has remained almost entirely closed to Palestinians. There are 20 checkpoints in Hebron, 100 obstacles to freedom of movement, 1,800 closed shops, and more than 1,000 empty housing units. Front doors to Palestinian shops and homes are sealed shut and families face continuous harassment and violence from Israeli soldiers and settlers who roam the streets freely carrying machine guns.
2017 marks 50 years of Israeli occupation and 23 years of strangling restrictions, closures, and inequality. It is time to open Shuhada Street and end Israeli segregation in Hebron!
