This study looks at the consequences of movement restrictions on Palestinians, with a focus on productive activities. The findings show that closures and curfews have caused a dramatic decrease in consumption and income levels, a rise in unemployment, a significant reduction in trade volume with plammeting investment levels, and generally severe economic losses with a Palestinian budget in critical conditions. The report calls for an end to mobility restrictions, and for the release of Israeli funds and donors' financial aid
