Al-Nu’man village was cut off from Jerusalem and the rest of the West Bank in 2003 and it is walled in on three sides by the wall, which was illegally constructed beyond the Green Line of armistice drawn after the 1949 Arab-Israeli war.

A permanent checkpoint is now the only entrance to and exit from the village.
