Palestine: International Women's Peace Service
IWPS Palestine is an international team of 16 women based in Hares, a village in the Salfit Governorate of Palestine's West Bank, which began for three continuous years from August 2002.
An international women’s house in Hares, Salfit, Palestine provides trained women from the international community to witness, monitor, document and publicise human rights abuses; to peacefully intervene to try and stop human rights abuses from occurring; and to support the growth in nonviolent resistance to the illegal and brutal military cccupation of Palestinian lands in the West Bank and Gaza.
