Hebron is a historic Arab Islamic city with a unique authentic heritage. In order to preserve Hebron’s cultural heritage and save the Old City from the greed of Jewish settlers, a presidential decree was issued on 12 August 1996 stipulating the creation of Hebron Rehabilitation Committee (HRC) comprising the city’s public figures and institutions.

 

HRC’s Objectives
Since its inception, HRC has set itself the following main objectives:
I. Preserve the cultural heritage by maintaining the constitutional
elements of old buildings, as well as preserving the whole urban
fabric;
II. Revive the Old City by consolidating ties with the population,
reusing abandoned buildings, upgrading the infrastructure and
connecting the Old City to the city’s other parts;
III. C ounter and limit Israeli settlements inside the Old City by
surrounding settlements with inhabited buildings to prevent their
horizontal expansion; and to avert the urban interconnection
of these settlements by increasing Arab demographic density
between them.
