The Wider Image: Scars on Middle East landscape bear witness to past peace failures
Buildings constructed during the British Mandate era to serve as jails and fortified positions are seen in Al-Jiftlik village near Jericho, in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, April 7, 2019. Long abandoned, sheep now wander through the empty buildings, searching for vegetation in the scorching heat of the Jordan Valley. The Israeli military sometimes uses them for training, Palestinian residents say. REUTERS/Mohamad Torokman SEARCH "LAND SCARS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
