Al Mufaqarah is one of a dozen traditional Palestinian herding communities situated in South Hebron Hills, in an area designated as a so called Closed military area or Firing Zone 918 adjacent to the Green Line.
Surrounded by four illegal settlements – Karmel and Ma’on at north; Suseya and Mezadot Yehuda at west – the people of the village face every day a lot of difficulties including confiscation of properties, settlers violence, harassment by soldiers, access and movement restrictions, inability to connect to the water and electricity grid, evacuation and demolition orders.
The PSCC launched Al Mufaqarah R-Exist campaign on 19th May 2012 to support the community in its legitimate struggle to remain on its land. The aim is to provide a permanent housing solution with the construction of 15 brick houses, a new mosque and legal support with long term monitoring of the situation.
