A Look at Chained Displacements

The Machsom Watch

Horit Herman-Peled is a member of an organization called the Machsom Watch. This organization is a group of older women who have a concern for human rights and the treatment of Palestinian itinerants crossing the Israeli borders. The groups stands watch over the soldiers to ensure proper treatment.

This group started because of the terrible treatment of these border crossers. The Israeli soldiers will delay anyone for inspection. This has included pregnant women, who have lost both their lives and their baby. With the Machsom Watch in place, the members hope the soldiers understand they are being watched and that they should treat the border crossers better.
