Tour of Jordan Valley: Palestinian Journalists

On June 13th, the Palestinian Peace Coalition organized an educational tour to the Jordan Valley and were joined by over 120 Palestinian journalists representing more than 40 different news agencies. The group visited the main Palestinian towns in the region and heard from local leaders, farmers and residents about the existing difficulties they face on a daily basis, as well as the destructive impact that annexation will have on their livelihoods, their access to land, water and restrictions on movement. Through maps and visual aids, the journalists explored the reality on the ground and were able comprehend the physical threats to the future continuity of a Palestinian state. Despite the challenges that lie ahead, the PPC’s Director Nidal Foqaha emphasized the importance of the two-state solution and the need to find ways to renew negotiations.
