Israel barrier cuts off family

Separation barrier leaves Palestinian family stranded in West Bank.



    Hani Amer, a Palestinian resident of the West Bank village of Mas'ha, must pass through padlocks, fences and two gates to get from his home on one side to any other part of town.

    Israel's separation barrier has cut off Amer's home from those of his neighbours and the view of his village has been replaced by the wall.

    Israel says it built the wall to protect its citizens from Palestinian attacks, but Amer, who lives on the same side as Israeli settlers in the West Bank, says it is his family that needs protection.
