Palestinian labourers working in Israel wait to cross a checkpoint to go to work through the main Israeli terminal near the West Bank town of Qalqilya on International Workers' Day, on May 1, 2019. Tens of thousands of Palestinian workers are forced to seek a living by working in Israel due to crippling unemployment in the West Bank, as the growth of an independent Palestinian economy has been stifled under the ongoing Israeli military occupation, according to rights groups.
