  • Actually itís a system of electric fences, barbed wire, trenches, patrol roads, trace paths, cameras and sensors. The fence it self is 3 meters high.

  • The concrete Wall, now present in Qalqiliya, parts of Tulkarem and East Jerusalem (always near houses) is 8 meters high Ė twice the height of the Berlin Wall - with armed watchtowers and a "buffer zone"of  30-100 meters. The Wall's "buffer zone" paves the way for demolitions and the expulsion of nearby residents as in many places the Wall is located just meters away from homes, shops, and schools.

  • The Israeli military has created gates in the Wall; however these do not provide any guarantee for farmers to access their land but instead creates system of permits and checkpoints where Palestinians are humiliated.xxxx

  • This is in addition to more then 600 checkpoints that the Israeli army made in the last 3 years. 56 of them are permanent and the others are changing and most of the time blocking the roads without any soldiers but with stones. This creates a system of only-Jewish roads all over the west bank. This is one of the evil faces of the occupation preventing the people the freedom of movement and letting them waited for hours and being controlled by young soldiers.

  • Itís important to remember that the Israeli army controls both of the sides of the fence (!).xxx
