On 7 July 2017, the Hadads moved house in central Hebron, where Israel greatly limits Palestinian movement by car and on foot. Their furniture truck was not allowed through either checkpoint in the vicinity, forcing them to unload and reload it in the heat and eventually enlist the help of a neighbor with a donkey cart. They were permitted to push lighter possessions through a turnstile at one checkpoint, where one family member got into an altercation with security forces and was arrested. Shuruq Hadad documented the incident on video.
