The Bedouin face increasing difficulties, including repeated demolitions of their tents and animal sheds. The herders find less and less land where they are permitted to dwell and graze their flocks.

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.
