The economy of this Palestinian village depended on Israel. Then...

The economy of the Palestinian village of Nilin in the West Bank has been severely impacted by Israel's decision to sever economic ties with the West Bank. Before the decision, over 10,000 Palestinian workers crossed the checkpoint in Nilin daily to work in Israel, but now the checkpoint is closed and the village is facing a dire economic crisis. The closure of the checkpoint has resulted in a third of the village's residents losing their jobs, a drop in commercial revenue, and a rise in unemployment across the West Bank. The Palestinian Authority is also facing financial difficulties and is unable to pay full salaries to its employees.
