closed road on the edge of Jericho

this is a common site throughout the west bank, palestinian roads are forcibly closed by occupation forces via large concrete stones which are placed in the road ways. this road, on the outskirts of jericho, had been closed with stone blocks for a number of years. to the left of this image, up on a hill, sat a fortified watch tower where soldiers could survey the entire valley and fire at palestinians attempting to cross the barrier.
