Israeli High Court of Justice approved on Monday the route of the annexation Wall near Qalqilia, north of the West Bank. The decision involves isolating thousands of Dunams of Palestinian orchards behind the Wall.
Israeli media sources reported that the approved section of the Wall is located in the south of Qalqilia and extends around the settlements of Beit Arieh and Ofarim by Isolating 3900 Dunams that belong to the villagers.
According to the court ruling the residents will be able to enter their orchards through the gates of the Wall and through a military checkpoint.
Also, the court ordered the uproot of 1100 olive trees that belong to the villagers who depend of their orchards as their main source of livelihood.
Yet, the court did not forbid expansion of settlements constructed on Palestinian annexed lands, located behind the Wall.
