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 climate with mild and rainy winters. During the winter temperatures drop but remain pleasant. Especially during autumn a lot of rain can be expected. During spring temperatures rapidly rise, during the entire summer temperatures are pleasantly warm to even hot. Precipitation figures during this period are extremely low.
