A new skatepark opened in Jayyous, a village located near Israel's separation wall in the West Bank, and regularly affected by Israeli army raids.

The project was built in just a month by UK charity SkatePal with a team of international volunteers, alongside local partner SkateQilya. The organisations hope to create a safe space for local youth.
