Al-Ibrahimi Street is split in two by a fence: a wide, well-paved asphalt road that’s exclusively for Jews on one side and a narrow, bumpy walkway for Palestinian pedestrians. Israel has consistently denied that the barrier is intended to separate Jews from Palestinians, but in practice, the Border Policemen don’t allow Palestinians to use the street.

[...] Ten-year-old Saja, who ran to the site immediately and found the bike after her younger sister came home crying, also apparently performed a forbidden act: She infiltrated the Jews’ road for a moment.
