Sabeel Jerusalem young women group travelled to the occupied Syrian Golan Heights

On Sunday 12 June, 38 young women from Jerusalem travelled to the occupied Syrian Golan Heights on a solidarity visit. The group met with the Syrian people who have remained in the Golan Heights, connected with them, and shared stories. The month of June is a very popular time to visit and show solidarity among both of our people. For Palestinians, this is the anniversary of the occupation of the Golan Heights and East Jerusalem by the Israeli military in 1967. It is also cherry-picking season in the Golan Heights. For many decades, Palestinian communities have travelled there every year for the cherry and apple seasons to support the local farmers and buy their products.
