The mountain of the wall - the battle for Jerusalem

On March 18 1997 on Jabal Abu Ghoneim mountain, near Bethlehem, bulldozers began to demolish the last hope of Israel implementing the Oslo Peace Accord.

Abu Ghoneim mountain is located at the northern borders of the town of Beit Sahour, the ancient site of the shepherds' fields. It is part of the territory Israel occupied during the 1967 war, which the international community has repeatedly insisted must be returned to its Palestinian owners. The mountain was originally declared a greenbelt.
