Moving house in Hebron: Mission all but impossibleB`Tselem - In July ‘Abd al-Jaber Hadad (26) was preparing to move with his wife and two children from an apartment they had rented in the neighborhood of Jabal Juhar to a more spacious apartment on a-Sahla Street. Palestinians are only allowed on foot in a-Sahla Street. Checkpoints have been placed at either end of the street – Checkpoint 160 at one end and the Pharmacy Checkpoint at the other. The new apartment lies just five meters away from the Pharmacy Checkpoint. But the family was forced in the summer heat to walk the furniture the long way.

Will the Rafah Crossing open in September? Amira Hass - Haaretz - Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar, told commentators and journalists that the Rafah Crossing between Gaza and Egypt - closed almost completley since 2014 - will very likely open to goods and people in September. This seems to be the culmination of prolonged efforts by Hamas to achieve rapprochement with General Sisi`s regime in Cairo. Muhammad Dahlan, the fierce opponent of Palestinian Authority President Abbas, seems also involved in the deal. A reopening of Rafah will alleviate the deteriorating conditions in Gaza, and there are some 20,000 Gazans waiting for the permit to leave the Strip. However, nothing is certain until the crossing is actually opened. The few Palestinians who were able to move through Sinai reported a rough treatment at Egyptian Army checkpoints. [ak] 22/8/2017

New graffiti on Israeli separation wall denounces Trump obsession with barriersMa`an - Shortly after midnight, a foreign man was seen perched on a ladder spray-painting a military tower embedded in the Israeli Separation Wall adjacent to Bethlehem and Aida refugee camp. Once finished, the mural revealed a large-scale portrait of US President Donald Trump embracing the watchtower, with a thought bubble reading "I am going to build you a brother." The painting of this mural coincided with The Washington Post releasing the transcript of a phone conversation between Trump and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, where Trump cited the Israeli Separation Wall as a precedent for his own planned wall on the US-Mexican border.
