Excerpt: There is strict closure separating the city from the surrounding villages and from the camps. Residents of remote villages, the two refugee camps in the district, the H2 area in Hebron city and households close to the to Qiryat Arba settlement are particularly badly affected. The UNDP Participatory Poverty Assessment states that Hebron district has the highest poverty rate of the West Bank, the poorest areas being small villages in Yatta, south of Hebron, villages around As Samu?, Beit Roush, al Fouqa, Nuba, Beit Khalil, Kharas and Sourif. According to the pair-wise ranking exercise, 43 % of the district?s population is estimated to be food insecure and a further 30 % are considered to be under threat of becoming food insecure should current conditions persist or deteriorate further. Yatta cluster is particularly affected by closure, land confiscation and the remoteness of many of its villages. Bedouin farmers are food insecure largely because they are prevented from grazing their animals freely due to the neaby Israeli Army training camps. Dahiriya and Dura clusters, which were heavily dependent on employment in Israel, now contain a concentration of unemployed who are severely hampered by movement restrictions in their search for alternative work locally. Hebron cluster, as the map indicates, is affected mainly by long periods of curfew imposed on the city and the presence of the settlements within the city. Beit Ummar area faces considerable difficulties in marketing agricultural produce in local and national markets. The presence of settlements makes it difficult for farmers to reach their land. As a result, some farmers have abandoned farming as their livelihood.
