We’re delighted to be able to share that ‘Mission: Hebron’ was published today in the op-docs section of the New York Times website and can now be viewed in full here: https://nyti.ms/3CmqGB9.
‘Mission: Hebron’ is a prize-winning short documentary based on a series of interviews conducted by the director, Rona Segal, with Breaking the Silence testifiers – who speak about their service in the city of Hebron. Together, they describe a horrifying yet mundane routine of manning checkpoints, invading homes, nighttime arrests, violently dispersing protests and so on. The former IDF soldiers paint a picture of what serving in the second largest Palestinian city in the occupied territories requires, the atmosphere in the city and their interaction with the local population – both Palestinians and settlers – and how they felt about it all.
