Palestinians build Israeli homes

Struggling Palestinians have no choice but to work building the illegal settlements.

    Israel's settlements in the occupied West Bank and east Jerusalem are one of the main stumbling blocks in the Palestinian-Israeli peace process.

    Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, is refusing to resume talks until there is a complete freeze in their construction.

    However, some Palestinians have no other way to make ends meet than to work for Israeli construction companies building the illegal Israeli settlements.
