Route 3265 is a major traffic artery in the southwest Hebron hills, linking villages in the area with the city of Hebron . Over the years, it served the 45,000 Palestinians who live in the area. In recent years, settlers from the unauthorized outposts Negohot and Mitzpeh Lachish have also used the road. In 2000, Palestinians shot at a vehicle driving along the road and killed a settler from Negohot. Since 2001, the army has completely prohibited Palestinians from driving along the road and even from walking along it.

Even in the weird reality of the occupation, some situations are particularly absurd. Every morning, the Jadallah children cross the road on which their house is built. A road on which they are forbidden to travel or walk along, and go by foot about 3 kilometers to school in the nearby village of Faqiqs, along a path full of sharp ascents and descents difficult for even good walkers. The prohibited road, Route 3265, used to take them directly to school, a maximum of two minutes from their home.
Hafez Muhammad Jadallah: This road is forbidden. The army forbids us to use it, I'm not sure why. They're afraid of problems. This road connects Beit �Awwa, Dura, Hebron , the whole area west of Hebron. We live here. We reach it via the mountain.
The house is surrounded by mountains, and for the family, the road is the sole traffic artery. To go shopping, the brother Khaled walks with his bags over the hills about three hours. Meanwhile, the road stands empty, waiting for one of the 200 Israelis who live in the area, who are allowed to use the road.
