Israel's separation wall has generated anger and protest all over the Palestinian territories.

For one small village on the ouskirts of Bethlehem, the wall has effectively created a prison for its Palestinian residents.

Al-Nu'man village was cut off from Jerusalem and the rest of the West Bank in 2003 and it is walled in on three sides by the wall, which was illegally constructed beyond the Green Line of armistice drawn after the 1949 Arab-Israeli war.

A permanent checkpoint is now the only entrance to and exit from the village.
