The Old Town of Hebron

The old town of Hebron is the heart and vibrant part of the city. It has always been a terminal of tourists and a commercial and religious destination.  The city has endured a series of Jewish attacks meant to displace its people and blur its Islamic religious character. After the 1994 agreement that divided Hebron into H1 and H2 areas, the Hebron Chamber of Commerce and Industry came to realize that it is incumbent upon it to maintain the Arab character of the old town. Thus, it began to develop programs and participate in projects, in association with other Palestinian institutions, tailored to maintaining the old town population and motivate them to stand firm in the face of Israeli systematic displacement policies.
