Their mission is to bring the infrastructure necessary for ending the conflict and the occupation. They work together to bring about peace and justice and to demonstrate that Palestinians and Israelis can work and live together.

“We are able to … transform the language of blood to a language of dialogue and peace.” – Mahmoud al Fiat, a member of the Tel-Aviv/Tulkarm Combatants for Peace Group.
