Barrier imprisons West Bank village

Illegal Israeli settlement construction isolates Palestinian village.

     

    Israel's separation barrier has generated anger and protests all over the Palestinian territories.

    For one small village on the ouskirts of Bethlehem, the wall has effectively imprisoned its Palestinian residents.

    Al-Nu'man village was cut off from Jerusalem and the rest of the West Bank in 2003 and it is walled-in on three sides by the West Bank separation barrier, which was illegally constructed beyond the Green Line drawn after the 1949 Arab-Israeli war.

    A permanent checkpoint is now the only entrance to and from from the village.
