West Bank: Israelis, Palestinians separated by wall on road

Eight-meter-high fence along entire route

10 January, 13:12

    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, JANUARY 10 - An eight-meter-high wall along a four-km road that has been opened north-east of Jerusalem, in the West Bank, will separate Palestinian and Israeli vehicles. In the West Bank, Haaretz reports, more roads are exclusively reserved to Palestinians or Israelis. In this case, however, the wall separates the whole route.

    The road n.4370 runs near the city-settlement of Maale Aumium, located between Jerusalem and Jericho. It will make it easier for Israelis living in settlements south of Ramallah to enter Jerusalem.

    The Palestinians who will try to use it, according to commercial television Channel 10, will be stopped by Israeli police and redirected to the western side of the road that leads to a Palestinian village near East Jerusalem. The road, which Israel said was conceived for security reasons, cost 150 million shekel, approximately 40 million euros. (ANSAmed)
