Israelis and Palestinians both come to worship at the Tomb of the Patriarch in Hebron where it is believed that Abraham is buried. Hebron’s land is divided into H1, which is controlled, by the Palestinian Authority and H2, which the Israeli Military oversees. The Israeli military controls access to the Tomb of the Patriarch. Here, a man is walking toward the security entrance for non-Israelis while Jews (back) leave through a different exit. Israelis and Palestinians pray at the temple/mosque at the same time, however there are separate entrances and a wall divides them inside.
