Photojournalist Uriel Sinai has been covering the West Bank for Getty Images. He’s spent time documenting the Jewish Settlement outpost of Havat Gilad, Migron and Beit Horon among others.

The photographs show the sometimes peaceful, other times turbulent nature of the West Bank where life between the Israeli’s and Palestinians often clash.

Jewish Settler Yehoda Shimon and his wife Ilana spend the afternoon with their children at their home at the Jewish Settlement outpost of Havat Gilad in the West Bank. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will formally submit the application for Palestinian statehood to the 66th United Nations General Assembly in New York on September 20th. The Palestinian bid arises from two decades of on-and-off peace talks that have failed to produce a deal.

The gates were up, training facilities were open and NFL players went back to work.

Now, they need to get ready for the season in a hurry.

After a lockout that lasted 4½ months ended Monday July 25, 2011 with an agreement between the NFL and its players, teams’ facilities were buzzing with activity. Players all around the league were allowed back in to meet with coaches, work out, take physicals and receive playbooks.

Teams were also allowed to sign their drafted players and undrafted free agents, and negotiate with free agents in what will likely be a flurry of activity unlike what the league has ever seen.

Broncos owner Pat Bowlen​ issued a statement Monday afternoon thanking fans for their patience throughout the duration of the lockout. “Although the offseason was unsettling for everyone, this agreement will ensure the continued growth and prosperity of this league well into the future,” said Bowlen, co-chair of the league’s Management Council Executive Committee. “I am thrilled that it is finally time to turn our attention back to the game that all of us love.”
