In this area under Israeli control, it is virtually impossible to obtain an official permit to build a house.

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.
