Israeli troops are sealing off the Palestinian village of Ni’lin in the occupied West Bank.

Villagers in Ni’lin are trying to stop the latest stretch of Israel’s separation wall from cutting them off from their farmland.

Israel says the barrier is being built to keep out Palestinian suicide bombers.

Construction sites are flashpoints for confrontations between Israeli security forces and Palestinians, who are often supported by left-wing protesters from Israel and abroad.

David Chater, Al Jazeera’s correspondent in the West Bank, filed this exclusive report.
