these are images i took while in Susiya, in the southern area of the West Bank near Bethlem and Hebron.

activists with the international solidarity movement (ISM), led a delegation of 400 anti-occupation activists to susiya, in the south hills of al-khalil (hebron) in a show of solidarity with a palestinian area often attacked by colonists from the near by settlement. both the international solidarity movement and the palestine solidarity project (PSP) have previously aided the palestinian residents of susiya in their fight against settler violence, and yesterday, their large numbers were able to force the retreat of the settlers. as the palestinian, international and israeli activists were confronted by the settlers, the colonists were forced to withdrawal and retreat because of the large crowd.
