international observer mission here but it's no less worrying for being predictable they were doing an amazing neutral documentation here which can be used by the palestinians to make is that accountable in the international criminal court. the temporary international presence in hebron tiff has been in place here since one thousand nine hundred seven its term renewed every six months on a palestinian market street protected by canopies from settler buildings above traders say that if reports have done nothing to prevent the steady worsening of the situation. kicking out is the first step towards even more space for hebron because netanyahu is planning to expand the settlements here. but if mission was set up in the aftermath of the one nine hundred ninety four massacre of twenty nine muslim worshippers it had runs ibrahimi mosque by an american israeli settler the city was formally divided in one thousand nine hundred seventy eighty percent under palestinian authority control twenty percent including the old city and the site of

which according to an israeli media leak was an extremely critical summation of twenty years worth of israeli violations of palestinian rights the other place to look is in israeli domestic politics israel's prime minister indicated in the vendor that he was considering ending the presence since then he's called elections for the ninth of april there's plenty of political motivation for him to call the votes on the israeli right above the deserted shahada street behind a cage protecting her from rock throwing attacks only iran has only curses for netanyahu and fears for increased violence wants to fix gone hadrons bitter division is set fire to outlast the international mission whose job it spin to monitor it ari force at al-jazeera hebron. the un special rapporteur on executions has met istanbul's chief prosecutor agnes kalamata and a forensic and legal team are on
