Netiv Ha’asarah is the closest Israeli village to the border with Gaza. Targeted for years by the Hamas, the agricultural village has two set of high cement wall protecting its residence from Palestinian snipers, and may shelters against rockets. Some years ago a tunnel was found near it.
A visit to the site is an instructive and troubeling experience, attesting to the relationship between Israel and the Palestinians since Israel’s redrwal from Gaza in 2005.
Despite the Palestinian repeated aggresion, the members of the village have launched a project to paint the walls with symbols of peace (“Path to Peace”).
