This is a video of children at Balata refugee camp outside the West Bank city of Nablus, the way they see themselves, their world, their hopes, their dreams … their pain.

… and this is the camp itself – and the conditions under which these children are forced to live day by day! Maybe now you can understand better … it is


For four consecutive nights, the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) have invaded Balata Refugee Camp on the outskirts of Nablus (Palestine). They drove up and down the camp, threw percussion grenades and fired randomly at residents’ homes.
This is not a new habit of the IOF, but something they’ve kept doing for many years already. It’s important to note that this is not an exception, but normality in Balata Refugee Camp.

I found those videos on Haitham’s blog … thanks Haitham!
