One Day, the Wall Went Up in al-‘Izariyya, Turning This Family’s Lives Upside Down


Yusuf al-Khatib of al-‘Izariyya worked hard all his life to provide for his family. The wall took it all away. 

One family’s story shows the random cruelty of the wall, which sliced through the town of al-‘Izariyya without regard for the lives and livelihoods of its residents. Businesses were destroyed, relationships severed, and life in the town was never the same. 

We look at these issues through the lens of one family’s story. Their son, Muath, a photographer, shared this Photo Story.
