Nassim Abu Khdier

” My name is Nassim Abu Khdier, and I am from Surif, which is close to Hebron.

I’m 28 years old, have a Bachelor’s degree in communication, but I’ve been working in the agriculture industry for years with my father and family who are specialists. Every year, I look forward to Ramadan so that I can pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque.

Getting to Jerusalem is difficult because there are so many roadblocks and checkpoints that prevent Palestinians from reaching the holy city.

I usually go very early because I need more than five hours of transportation, but as I get to the old Jerusalem lanes and see its buildings, I forget about all the difficulties I had on my way; I love this land and its people, and I feel happy to be there among the visitors from all cities; I continue to Al-aqsa mosque and prepare to pray in a corner where I can see the dome of the rock with all its charming view and the happiness of the adults and children around it. I hope that everyone who wasn’t able to come here will be able to come one day.”
