Hebron: A Dual Narrative Tour of the Most Divided City

Hebron: A Dual Narrative Tour of the Most Divided City, Hebron, Palestinian Authority (B)

Hebron, located in the West Bank, is the second holiest city of Judaism as well as one of the four holy cities of Islam. Split since 1997 in two sectors, one controlled by the Palestinian Authority and the other one by Israel, Hebron is one of the most troubled areas of the Middle East.

During my visit, I got the chance to visit both sides of the city with a local guide that would tell me their own view of the conflict: a Jewish settler on the Israeli side, and a local Palestinian from the other sector of the city. Find out what it is like to live in the most divided city of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict!

Hebron is easily reached by public transport from Jerusalem's central bus station. Bus 160 goes straight to the Israeli-controlled area of the city and costs only 15.6 shekels each way (approx. €3.7). 

If you want to go to the Palestinian side, you can take bus 21 from the Arab bus station just next to Damascus gate, which will bring you to Bethlehem bus station. From there, it will be necessary to get a collective taxi to Hebron (Al-Khalil in Arabic).  ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
