  • Description

    THE CURFEW STILL IN FORCE IN HEBRON CITY, JORDAN, IS BEING LIFTED FOR TWO HOURS DAILY WITH AN EASING OF THE TENSION THAT FOLLOWED THE ISRAELI ATTACK ON THE VILLAGE OF SAMMU, IN THE HEBRON AREA, ON NOVEMBER 13TH. OUR FILM REPORT SHOWS HEBRON CITY AND SAMMU, AS WELL AS ANOTHER VILLAGE, BEIT SAFAFA, WHERE A WIRE FENCE THROUGH ITS CENTRE SYMBOLISES THE SEPARATION OF THE ARABS FROM THE OLD PALESTINE AREAS THAT ARE NOW ISRAEL.

    IN HEBRON CITY, THE SHOPS ARE NOW BEING OPENED FOR TWO HOURS EACH DAY. IN BEIT SAFAFA, A VILLAGE ON THE ROAD TO HEBRON CITY, THE DIVISION OF JORDAN AND ISRAEL CAN BE CLEARLY SEEN -- A WIRE FENCE RUNS THROUGH THE CENTRE OF THE VILLAGE WHERE SOME 3,000 PEOPLE LIVE. MEMBERS OF THE SAME FAMILIES LIVE ON OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE WIRE.

    MEANWHILE, QUIET HAS ALSO RETURNED TO THE HEBRON VILLAGE OF SAMMU. JUST OVER TWO WEEKS AGO, UNITS OF THE ISRAELI ARMY, BACKED BY TANKS AND FIGHTER AIRCRAFT, CARRIED OUT A MASSIVE REPRISAL RAID ON VILLAGES IN THE AREA INCLUDING SAMMU. A BITTER FIGHT DEVELOPED WITH JORDAN FORCES. SOME 40 HOUSES IN THE AREA ARE REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN DEMOLISHED.
