Description : The owner of a supermarket has lost 80% of his clients and subsequently had to close down his business.

Before the construction of the Barrier, Al-Ram was a busy and easily accessible meeting point between the West Bank and Jerusalem; The construction of the West Bank Barrier has radically isolated Al-Ram. More than half of the shops along the Al-Ram-Ramallah road had to close down.
