The military blocked the main entrance to a Hebron neighborhood for 3 weeks because of a torched checkpoint, punishing hundreds for a deed by individuals. The checkpoint serves no security purpose and is part of Israel’s separation policy in Hebron. The military must remove this and other unnecessary checkpoints in Hebron. As long as the checkpoint remains, the military must enable regular passage and avoid collective punishment.
