Israeli Land Grabs in the Occupied West Bank

Hafez Hureini, a decades-long activist in Masafer Yatta in the occupied West Bank, has thwarted Israeli annexation attempts since the '80s through non-violent resistance.

Now in his mid 50s, Hafez is passing the reigns over to his sons Sami and Hammoudi who are trying to continue his brand of peaceful activism but in a far more dangerous context.

They are confronted by the devastating war in Gaza that has emboldened Israeli settler violence in the occupied West Bank. West Bank: Family Under Fire is a Witness Documentary film by Katie Arnold.
