Additional Information: Synopsis

Produced by the Arab Center In 2007, Al Ijtiyah depicts the current Palestinian situation, mainly the year 2002, during the Israeli "Protective Shield" Operation, where the Israeli forces invaded Jenin Camp and other Palestinian Areas.

Al Ijtiyah addressed the Palestinian human being, away from drama-crying type in almost every other related drama.

It succeeded in showing a new image of the people living in the line of fire.

Al Ijtiyah also showed pictures of Palestinian Unity, when a group of resistants took refuge in the Nativity Church to protect themselves from the Israeli soldiers. The priests there greeted them like heroes and stood by them till the end.

It therefore showed a type of unity that lacks under the current situations in the Palestinian territories.
