Along The Lines
In 2002, at the peak of the second Palestinian uprising, Israel began building a network of high concrete walls and razor wire in the West Bank. Israel says the barrier keeps out Palestinian attackers and saves lives. Palestinians say it a land grab.
The barrier, built to stop attacks, has started something new. It has changed the landscape, cutting through hills and olive groves. Palestinians fight against the barrier, but they have also had to learn to live alongside it.
Over the years, the West Bank barrier has become the new backdrop to a decades-old story of distrust, animosity, and war between Israelis and Palestinians.
