COMBATANTS FOR PEACE is “a group of Palestinians and Israelis who have taken an active part in the cycle of violence in our region: Israeli soldiers serving in the IDF and Palestinians as combatants fighting to free their country, Palestine, from the Israeli occupation. We – serving our peoples, raised weapons which we aimed at each other and saw each other only through gun sights – have established Combatants for Peace on the basis of non-violence principles.”
Organized in several local groups across the region, they work for reconciliation between Palestinians and Israelis, and believe in a two-state solution.
Represented by Ben Yeger and Ahmed Helou, they took part in MOTforestillinger II, and elaborate on their project Theatre on the Ground.
