A Palestinian woman from Ramallah set out on a long road to becoming a “mother”.
As the mother of three young children, she also has to cope with being the sole breadwinner in a household of four.
“I want [to be a] mother to my children,” she told Al Jazeera.
“My husband is not here to take care of them, I have no other option.”
But the struggle for a second job, in an Israeli town, is proving difficult for her.
“In the beginning, I was in a position where I had to take the risk of not working,” she said.
“The situation is not ideal, but I want to do it.”

Unemployment is at a high rate.
Palestinians are not allowed to work.
It’s very difficult for them.
The unemployment rate among Palestinians in Israel is almost twice the rate in Gaza.”
In the Israeli town of Kafr Nablus, the unemployment rate for Palestinians living there is 10 percent.
But even in the Palestinian West Bank towns of Ramallah, Nablous and Hebron, unemployment rates are higher than in Gaza.
Unemployment in the Israeli settlement of Ma’aleh Adumim, the largest in the occupied Palestinian territory, has reached 42 percent.
The Israeli occupation of the West’s occupied territories is an ongoing and widespread human rights violation.
The Occupied Palestinian Territories are governed by the Jordanian government, which regards the West bank as part of its sovereign territory and has declared it to be occupied.
Palestinian territories occupied since 1967 by Israel, the majority-Arab state, include the West, East and South.
They are administered by the Palestinian Authority (PA) which is recognised by the United Nations, but is not recognised by Israel.
Palestinians in the region are entitled to the right to return to their homes and their properties and the right of return is guaranteed under international law.
Israeli authorities have carried out a series of military incursions and restrictions on Palestinian rights since 1967.
According to the International Criminal Court, Israel has committed war crimes, crimes against humanity and crimes against the Palestinian people.
It also considers the Palestinian population in the Occupied Territories, as well as any other group or individual, to be an armed and threatening threat to its security and that it is responsible for the actions of Palestinian civilians and groups.
“We have seen the effects of this policy,” Al Jazeera said.

In June, the Israeli military said it was closing the al-Qudra mosque, located in the heart of Jerusalem, due to “security concerns”.
The mosque is considered the holiest site in Islam and was built by Muslims thousands of years ago, before the establishment of Israel.
The building is home to the Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Mosque, where Jews can pray, the Dome of the Rock and a small number of Muslim shrines.
Israel has been using the mosque to mark the date of the Jewish Temple’s destruction in Jerusalem, in 70AD.
Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem is the location where the Dome, the Muslim holy site, is currently being venerated.
Israeli soldiers and Israeli settlers are currently using the site as a military base, and on Thursday, Israeli soldiers were seen using tear gas on Palestinians protesting the closure of the mosque.
“They are trying to take away the Dome and we’re not going to let them,” said Mohammed Aboun, a local Palestinian activist.
“It’s very dangerous.”
In March, Israeli authorities closed the Al Quds Mosque, the third-holiest site in Judaism, after Jewish worshippers began a campaign to mark Al-Masjid al-Haram (the Noble Sanctuary) which sits in Jerusalem’s Old City.
The mosque, which is the third holiest site, houses some 300,000 Muslims, Jews and Christians and is considered holy by Muslims.
Al Aaboun said: We have seen what the Israeli authorities do to the mosque in Gaza [and] in the al-‘Aqaba Mosque, they demolished it.
They have destroyed all the Muslim shrine sites, which are the most important places in Judaism and Judaism’s holiest site.
