A Jewish man throws wine at a Palestinian woman before a Purim parade in the West Bank city of Hebron on 10 March. Purim is an annual Jewish festival with celebrations that include feasting and drinking. Hebron is divided into two zones. In one, under Israeli security control, several hundred Jewish residents live among tens of thousands of Palestinians. Tension between the communities is expressed in acts of harassment and provocation from both sides.
