Palestinian stone throwers are usually photographed clashing with Israeli soldiers. Here, seven of them gather in a home in the West Bank village of Bilin to display their improvised weapons of protest. They pose for the camera, but their identities remain hidden. These seven individuals represent an entire people’s struggle.
In the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israeli soldiers have been injured by Palestinian stone throwers, and many stone throwers also have been wounded or killed by Israeli troops. Many Palestinians view stone throwers as heroes.
