TIME Magazine has released its annual list of 100 most influential people which included Palestinian twin activists Muna El Kurd and Mohammed El Kurd.

“provided the world with a window into living under occupation in East Jerusalem this spring,” which has helped “to prompt an international shift in rhetoric in regard to [Israeli Occupation] and Palestine.” The magazine described the twins.

Mohammed has appeared on many US news channels such as CNN, MSNBC and Democracy Now to discuss the recent violence in Sheikh Jarrah by the IOF and settlers.

TIME called the two activists “charismatic and bold” who challenged “existing narratives about Palestinian resistance through viral posts and interviews, humanizing the experiences of their neighbors and pushing back against suggestions that violence was being predominantly carried out by Palestinians.”

The Kurd family is among a handful of Palestinian families that face a forced uprooting from their Sheikh Jarrah home, located in rightful Palestinian territory, East Jerrusalem.
