Our friends the Comboni Sisters who work with the community  sent this message today: Thank you very much for your closeness and prayer. We are also overwhelmed with sadness and concern for the future of the Jahalin. it seems a barren road! I feel so powerless.  Now we expect anything at any time… and the bedouins are exhausted after months of uncertainty and pressure.  We try to keep hope alive, but it is not easy. The Jahalin are our masters in patience and resilience. They are amazing! We remain united in prayer and commitment (6 September)
