The Wall

  • The Israeli wall, constructed largely on Palestinian land, entirely encircles the town of Qualiqilia, isolating its inhabitants from the world.
  • The wall’s total length will be some 760 km, which is twice the length of the 1949 Armistice Line (Green Line) between the West Bank and Israel. When completed, the Wall will de facto annex some 46% of the West Bank, an area in which the major settlements are located.
  • Approximately 250,000 West Bank Palestinians will be located between the Wall and the Green Line, making the argument of  protecting Israel against Palestinian terrorism through separation redundant. The Palestinians caught between the Wall and the Green Line require permits to live in their homes and can only leave their communities via a gate in the Wall.
  • In 2004 the International Court of Justice condemned the construction of the wall being built by Israel in the occupied Palestinian territory, including in and around East Jerusalem contrary to international law. Israel is under obligation to dismantle the structure make reparation for all damage caused.
