A Westbank Check-Point

The Israeli army heavily patrols the occupied territories where Palestinians live, many in crowded conditions especially in the Gaza strip. Check-points are maintained at major roads to prevent many Palestinians from leaving the occupied territories. Long delays at the check-point are a common occurrence. Some cities, such as Jerico, are now completely cut-off by trenches 8 feet wide and 5 feet deep.
