Saturday Market in Jenin, West Bank

The name Jenin struck a familiar chord when it was mentioned to me a few days ago, so today when the opportunity arose to visit this West Bank city, I jumped on it. You may have heard of Jenin, as it played a prominent role in the 2nd Intifada, which lasted from September 2000 until early 2007. During the Intifada both Israel and the Palestinians inflicted a lot of damage on each other, with much of Jenin winding up destroyed. Today the city is flourishing, however. Here’s a shot of its very lively, very loud Saturday market. Yes, Jenin is back.

    Looks like a very lively place. I love the green and blue cart in the centre.
