The Wall ("Fence") separates the West Bank (Palestinian Land) from Israel. It also intrudes into Palestinian land and separates villages, communities, families from one another and from their work, farms, schools, health centres, etc..
Palestinian Loss of Land Since 1948
Since 1948, Israel has reduced the West Bank area to pockets of Palestinian villages and towns by building Israeli settlements on Palestinian lands.
Palestinian Land Prepared for Settlements
Palestinian Land is razed to make room for Israeli settlements.
Check Points restrict the movement of Palestinains. Lines like these are a daily experience.
Settlements like this one are built for Israelis in the middle of the West bank, usually on hills or higher ground where they can keep watch over the Palestinian farms.
Palestinian houses are destroyed.
One of the daily realities they live with is an ongoing water shortage. Israel has control over virtually all of it — some of the largest settlements built deepest into the West Bank are built over major aquifers — and they often take water out of the West Bank and sell it back to the Palestinians at low volumes and inflated prices. Palestinians find it nearly impossible to get a permit from the Israelis to build much-needed wells on their own land.
