Villagers on the line

The 'Green Line', and a railway line, bisect the Jerusalem village of Battir. Israeli plans are taking shape aiming to use either the Apartheid Wall or an Israeli National Park to confiscate around 3,000 dunums (741 acres) of the lands of the village, located just nearby the Green Line. Irrespective of Israel's tools of colonization, the villagers firmly believe that for them, land means life.
