It should be marked that the authorities of the occupation started since 2002 constructing a segment of the wall on the lands of Tulkarm governorate from the west. According to the data of al-Kafriyat municipality more than 20,000 dunums were isolated " segregated"  behind the wall from the lands of the village relative to Tulkarm namely (Kfar Aboush, Kfar Zybad, Kfar Jamal, Jfar Sour, Kour, Jibara, and al-Ras).

Not only that, the occupation put complicated procedures on the agricultural gates set up in the wall to harass the residents and to deny them access to their lands.  According to date of the village council, 67% of the farmers were denied access to their lands under the pretext of "security reasons".
