affects the lives of the Palestinian

A little background:

Israel's construction of the Apartheid Wall in the West Bank is a violation of human rights and international law. The wall is being built to encompass large illegal Jewish settlements located deep inside the West Bank; thus de facto making them part of the State of Israel. Violations of international law include collective punishment of the civilian population, the seizing of private property by an occupying power and the demolition of houses and property. For example, farmers and families in over 65 villages in the northern West Bank are deprived of their land which is isolated by the Wall and/or has been razed for the path of the wall.
