Day in and day out, the Palestinians of Khirbet Susiya see the permanent housing of the settlement of Susiya. Although there has been a Palestinian village in the area since the 19th century, the Israeli military displaced the residents from the original site of the village, declaring it an archeological site, and does not allow any construction in the present location. In the face of the raging winter storm, this injustice is more blatant than ever. Nasser Nawaj'ah, B'Tselem field researcher in the Southern Hebron Hills and a resident of Susiya filmed scenes from the storm.
