Israeli conductor Daniel Barenboim visits West Bank

Daniel Barenboim, has been visiting the West Bank for the first time in nearly a decade – to work with young Palestinian musicians.

He has been a strong opponent of Israel’s occupation of land that the Palestinians want for their future state, saying his visit was timed to remember the 50th anniversary of the 1967 war – when Israel captured East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza.

The maestro, who also has Palestinian citizenship, has been speaking to the BBC.
