Palestinian of al-Sweity family's harvest olive trees next to where Israel built their controversial separation barrier in the village of Deir Samet near Hebron in the occupied West Bank on October 11, 2014. The Sweity family is only able to harvest from part of their olive grove as access to the rest is cut by the concrete barrier that divides his family's land. Israel says the projected 723 kilometres (454 miles) of steel and concrete walls, fences and barbed wire is needed for security, while Palestinians view it as a land grab that undermines their promised state.
