Farmers, shepherds face loss of livelihoods in occupied West Bank

Palestinians in the Jordan Valley already have limited space to expand and movement is limited because of COVID-19.

    In the occupied West Bank, farmers and shepherds are being hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

    A lockdown across the territory has slowed an economy that was already in crisis.

    They have been left without any markets to sell their produce and it could threaten their way of life.
