The hardships on the Israeli military checkpoints in the West Bank are still making the life of Palestinians who need to travel a nightmare, despite the Israeli claims of removing 27 checkpoints and easing the travel.

 

Taxi drivers, who need to go through these checkpoints which are placed all over the West Bank, said nothing have changed, they said that they still need between 30 to 60 minutes to be able to drive through many of these checkpoints.

There are more than 450 checkpoints in the West Bank disconnecting the villages from the towns and cities and only a few of them lead to Israeli areas.

"It is still the same, everything they said about removing or easing the checkpoints are lies only," one taxi driver said.

Israeli Prime Minister claimed that 27 checkpoints will be removed from the West Bank and claimed that the Israeli military will take procedures which will ease mobility of the Palestinians.
