A study monitored the movement of citizens through 15 major Israeli military checkpoints between the cities of the West Bank as well as 11 crossing points that control the passage of citizens to Jerusalem and occupied territories in 1948 shows that:
– Palestinians lose around 60 million working hours per year due to the Israeli checkpoints.
– The cost of the loss is estimated at 270 million dollars per year,
– As well as the consumption of 80 million liters of additional fuel per year,
– Which costs up to 135 million dollars.
