Farmers and semi-nomadic Bedouins traditionally graze their livestock accross the desert valley in search of water and fresh feed. The Bedouins are increasingly restricted in their movement.

Since it occupied the valley in 1967, Israel has put in place a range of measures, including stringent restrictions on construction and movement. The measures hamper development, adversely affect livelihoods and generally make life very difficult for Palestinians living close to the 30 Israeli settlements in the valley.
