Muhannad and his family are the only permanent residents living in Shoshahla. And they've been living basically in isolation. All the other villagers left in the 1980's, because life became just too difficult here.

The village of Shoshahla  - near Bethlehem -  is surrounded by Jewish settlements  - and is almost deserted. 

It's in an area of the occupied West Bank  - controlled by the Israeli military and civilian authorities. 

One family says -  they're the only full-time residents in the village. 

TRT World's Iolo ap Dafydd reports now on a Palestinian way of life -  which is gradually being lost.
