is located within Area C and East Jerusalem,
near the main checkpoint between Ramallah
and Jerusalem and next to the West Bank Barrier.
The construction and expansion of Kalandia Checkpoint and the
West Bank Barrier in the early 2000s have
significantly affected the economic situation
in the camp by isolating it from the Israeli job market and Jerusalem.
Kalandia Checkpoint was originally constructed as a roadblock in 2001.
Since that time, it has become the busiest checkpoint in the West Bank in terms
of pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
The checkpoint has a strong military presence and is often the scene of confrontations
between Israeli forces and Palestinians.
Israeli forces also conduct frequent operations within Kalandia camp,
which have resulted in injuries and fatalities among camp residents.
In 2014, two fatalities occurred during Israeli operations,
one of which was an UNRWA staff member.
