The wall violates the basic rights of nearly a million Palestinians, forcing thousands of them to obtain special permits from the Israeli occupation forces to allow them to continue living and moving between their homes and their lands.

As behind the wall, there are profound negative impacts on the educational process. Many students and teachers were denied access to their schools, which confused the educational process in many schools.
