The climate of Hebron (Palestinian Territories)
Hebron is located on the West Bank and is part of the Palestinian
Territories. Hebron is an important city for Jews, Muslims and
Christians. According to legend matriarchs and patriarchs are buried
here. Abraham was said to have bought a cave and a piece of land here
to give the members of his family a last resting place. Because of
this many people from several different countries go on a pilgrimage
to Hebron. Hebron is an ancient city and probably dates back to the
Bronze Age. Just like other cities in this region Hebron has been
under the rule of different peoples and has been part of several
different empires. A beautiful museum with all kinds of treasures from
the past can be visited here. Nowadays Hebron is an important economic
center, largely due to the sale of marble which is quarried here.
Another main source of income is the trading in glass and figs. Hebron
is also part of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian
Territories. According to the UN there have been illegal Israel
colonies surrounding the city for years. The colonists claim that the
city belongs to their ancestors and should be given back to them.
However, the UN has stated that these colonies are illegal, but has
yet to take action to evacuate the area. Hebron has a Mediterranean
