A new report by Human Rights Watch has slammed Israel's treatment of Palestinian communities in the West Bank. 

It says Israel is using a two-tier system to promote illegal settlements, while deliberately stifling Palestinian development. 

Al Jazeera's Nour Odeh filed this report from the community of Jubb Al-Dib, near Bethlehem, which has had first-hand experience.
