Israeli Construction Pictures

As promised, here are some pictures of the new constructions along the highway between Ramallah and Jericho:

I can't say for sure what exactly they're building, but this is occupied Palestinian territory inside the West Bank, so whatever it is they're building it's officially considered illegal under international law.

And considering the infrastructure they're laying out (on the picture above, you can see preparations for roads), the only reasonable assumption is that they are constructing yet more illegal settlements in the West Bank.

All pictures are taken from the car window as we were swooshing by, but they're clear enough. There's two or three construction places along the way, in the middle of the desert. (But see how green it is now in the spring? It's beautiful).

And like I said in my other post, everybody here is taking for granted that sooner or later, this highway will be closed for Palestinians to make way for the Israeli settlers that will be transferred here, escorted by the Israeli military.

In other news, they will open a currently "Israeli/settler-only road" that's close to where I live for Palestinians too, as soon as they set up a new military checkpoint by it.

I love your work, we need to spread the word.

Thank you, Gallo. You're right--people need to see what is going on here.

My visa is until 31 December this year, after that we will see what happens.
