(en) Israel-Palestine, Media, High Court: State must explain why it won't move separation fence in Bil'in

Date Sun, 05 Feb 2006 11:04:25 +0200

Note: The years long struggle against the route of the separation
fence that used to grab Palestinians lands in the false pretence
of security for Jewish settlers got some successes. The year long
of persistant joint struggle of the Anarchists Against The Wall with
the Bil'in village popular commity contributed too. The folowing
report in the media is one sample of the smal victories along the
road. Ilan (see also http://www.ainfos.ca/06/feb/ainfos00009.html)
"The High Court of Justice on Thursday ordered the state prosecutor to
explain why Israel won't alter the route of the separation fence where
it passes over land belonging to the West Bank Palestinian village of Bil'in.

The state was given three weeks to explain why the fence can't be
moved west, toward the Upper Modi'in settlement, so that it won't
pass over Bil'in agricultural lands.

The High Court issued the preliminary injunction at the request of
Bil'in residents, who are petitioning the court to order the state to
alter the fence route in the area.

On Wednesday, lawyer Michael Sfard told the court the current
fence route was not determined by security considerations, as the
state maintains. Sfard said the fence route was designed to allow the
eastward expansion of Upper Modi'in.

He also said the fence route allows the building of the new
Matityahu East neighborhood. As was first published in Haaretz,
illegal construction, without any building permits or legal building
plan, is currently underway on the neighborhood.

"We had thought that the fence administration was building a
fence," Sfard said. "But now it is clear that the fence administration
is building new illegal neighborhoods in settlements."

The fence separates the village of Bil'in from a large portion of its
agricultural lands.

The Matityahu East neighborhood has 750 housing units and
another 2,000 are planned. The lands on which the neighborhood is
being constructed belong to Bil'in residents. Portions of the land
were obtained using documents suspected to have been forged.
