    Al Jazeera has spoken to Palestinians who say they feel suffocated and trapped by the torturous process they're subjected to by Israeli authorities, just to go to work.

    From long, angry lines at checkpoints to tough travel restrictions - they recount the endless delays that take hours out of their day.
