Settlers have taken over areas of Hebron's old market, making much of the old city off-limits to many locals that used to live and work there. Netting is hung above the markets to catch trash thrown down by settlers in the rapidly expanding complexes above. Soldiers stand by as settlers throw rocks at children going to school, insisting the soldiers' job is to protect the settlers, not the Palestinians. The formerly-bustling market area is now mostly abandoned.
