The remains of a Demolished house in the village of Al Walaja near Bethlehem. The house was twice demolished by the IDF, the first time for being on the projected route for the West Bank Barrier & the second time because the family that lived there did not obtain a permit to rebuild it after the route of the barrier was changed. The family had begun reconstructing the house but it remains unfinished as they were worried that the IDF may return to demolish it again. The remains are seen from the tent in which the family of five lived until enough of the house was finished to make it habitable. 2007
