Since the fence was extended from a-Salaimeh to Gheith https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bw9ty...
in May 2017, residents of the two neighborhoods must take a significant
detour when the gate installed at the end of the fence is locked.
B’Tselem field researcher Manal al-Ja’bri documented boys obliged to
take a long alternate route, which includes flights of steps, to reach
their home which is situated on the main street, pushing and carrying a
trolley with pottery made by their father. This route takes far longer,
is hard to negotiate, and is dangerous at night. This severe harm is a
case of collective punishment, which keeps residents from leading normal
lives and makes their lives intolerable.
