Abu Mohammad (65) with his grandsons Saed & Mohammad in his broken down truck he can no longer afford to fix in Bethany on the outskirts of Jerusalem. He used to be a driver before the wall was built 10 years ago and business was good. Now he has no access to Jerusalem and there is very little work in this area.

Building of the Israeli Separation Barrier started in 2002 and continues to be built throughout the West Bank. The 709 km long barrier consists of sections of 8 metre high concrete walls and 3 metre high wire and mesh fencing. Over 85% of the barrier is built within the Green Line on confiscated Palestinian land.
