Securing control over the entirety of Jerusalem has been a persistent objective of Israel’s occupation of the West Bank. However, with the beginning of the Oslo process, the Israeli authorities intensified already substantial efforts to isolate and consolidate control over annexed East Jerusalem and its surroundings.

Submitted by MAAN on Sat, 10/13/2012 - 13:36

The Qalqilya district continued to surface as one of the hardest hit areas by Israel’s occupation and colonization. Qalqilya is a difficult place to visit, not only from the act of bearing witness to blatant injustice, but also because the occupation often turn the visitor away at checkpoints. One can spend an entire afternoon attempting to reach the district from Ramallah, a physical distance of a little more than 30 kilometers, only to be denied passage. That number is rapidly decreasing.

Anata was a major thoroughfare, and its wheat fields and olive trees an agricultural heartland.
