Entry Description

Israel continues its illegal construction of the separation wall extending from East Jerusalem to the West Bank, beyond the 1967 green line (by International Court Justice). The 167 kilometer wall (part of the 790 km total) includes 73 crossings, 60 gates, and roadblocks. The lives of Palestinians have been shattered by the enduring hardships of life under occupation. The physical, social, political, psychological and military barriers to trade and commerce severely limit economic growth and quality of daily life under the apartheid-like system of Israel's continuing occupation of the Palestinian Territories.
