The wall in Tulkarem

This footage taken on 18 August 2002 follows the lines of Israel’s apartheid wall on a map and EI’s Arjan El Fassed filmed through which areas in and around Tulkarem Israel’s apartheid wall will be built. Most of the owners of the land already had been notified that their land was to be confiscated by military orders. The wall cuts a water pipeline built by the farmers.

    In Tulkarem, the wall separates Palestinian communities, cutting down agricultural land and denying access of Palestinian farmers to their land.

    At the end of the video, EI’s Arjan El Fassed filmed from the roof of a home which will be separated from Tulkarem and will be located between the 1967 demarcation line, and Tulkarem. The family who lives there is originally from a home, which could be seen from the roof, which is located on the other side of the 1967 demarcation line. In 1948, the father of the owner headed to Tulkarem and his brother stayed. Now, he will be completely isolated from both his family in Tulkarem and his uncle’s family, who live in what became Israel.
