- Since 2007, Israel has blocked the free movement of people and goods in and out of Gaza while also controlling its air space and territorial waters.
- Gaza has one of the highest unemployment rates in the world.
- In the West Bank, Palestinians are segregated by a 440km wall, which closes them off from agricultural areas and natural resources. With hundreds of military checkpoints, barriers and a complex and restrictive ID system, the lack of freedom of movement in the West Bank is a major factor in increasing poverty and disadvantage among Palestinians.
