Checkpoint Births

en children

DESCRIPTION

[January 2013] ‘Born at Qalandia Checkpoint’ focuses the phenomenon of Palestinian women forced to give birth at military checkpoints, which peaked during the Second Intifada (2000-05). Since this time, Palestinian women in remote areas have increasingly resorted to coping strategies of relocating in the weeks prior to delivery, or giving birth at home. UN and international agencies have sought to address the symptoms but not the root cause of the problem, which remains Israel's policies of settlement, segregation and control over the lives of Palestinians.
