Israeli forces move section of Annexation Wall near Gilo settlement in Bethlehem
Media reports in Israel and the US over the weekend applauded the removal of a section of Wall near Bethlehem, but failed to mention that just meters away, another section of Wall is under construction to surround and isolate the Palestinian village of Al-Walaja.
The section of Wall being removed on Sunday and Monday was a predecessor to the 700 km Wall currently being constructed throughout the West Bank to surround and separate Palestinian communities in the West Bank. The Gilo barrier was built nine years ago, on land seized from the Palestinian town of Beit Jala, near Bethlehem.
