BtS was founded in March 2004 by a group of soldiers who served in the Palestinian city of Hebron. It is an organisation composed of veteran combatants who have served in the Israeli military since the start of the Second Intifada in 2000 and have taken it upon themselves to “expose the Israeli public to the reality of everyday life in the Occupied Territories”.
