The West Bank Separation Barrier: Photo Essay


Warning notice in a section of the completed first phase of the barrier, near Qaffin, July 2003. As is common near other sensitive areas in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Israeli authorities have warned local communities that movement within 160 to 260 feet of the barrier will be forbidden, threatening access to crops, wells and buildings located close to the barrier. © 2003 Miranda Sissons/Human Rights Watch
