For centuries, Bedouin herders have grazed their sheep on their lands. While stock-breeding is the Bedouins’ main source of livelihood, the valley’s grazing lands that they need are in areas closed off for Israeli military use.

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.
