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 also has Palestinian citizenship
