The West Bank -- Life Under Occupation

Qalandia is monitored by Israeli soldiers and restricts Palestinians from leaving Ramallah.

Palestinians with permits granted by the Israeli military authority are allowed to enter Israel. Permits --usually for work, medical or religious reasons--are only administered to a select few.
