Wall Facts


       Approximately 60% of the planned route has been constructed to date. Construction is ongoing in the districts of Qalqilya, Ramallah, JerusalemBethlehem and Hebron. The Jordan Valley is almost completely isolated from the rest of the West Bank.

  The Wall’s total length will be some 760 kilometres when completed, twice the length of the 1949 Armistice Line (Green Line) between the West Bank and Israel.

       · When completed, the Wall will de facto annex some 46% of the West Bank.
       · Approximately 385,000 settlers in 80 settlements are located between the Wall and the Green Line, and 98% of the settler population will be included in the de facto annexed areas.

      Approximately 35,000 West Bank Palestinians will be located between the Wall and the Green Line (an area known as “no man’s land”). They require permits to live in their homes and can only leave their communities via a gate in the Wall. This is in addition to the majority of the 250,000 residents of East Jerusalem, which Israel annexed in 1967, but which is not recognized internationally as part of Israel.

      78 Palestinian villages and communities with a total population of 266,442 will be isolated as follows:

    o Palestinian whose villages will be surrounded by the Wall, settlements and settler roads: 257,265
    o Palestinians whose villages will isolated between the Wall and the Green Line: 8557

    o Palestinians whose villages will be isolated isolated and residents threatened with expulsion: 6314

     · The cost of the Wall to the Israeli government is now estimated at $2.1 billion. In addition, the Occupation has spent NIS 2 billion to construct alternative roads and tunnels.

     · Palestinians’ movement through the Wall is controlled by a network of 34 fortified checkpoints, 3 main terminals, 9 commercial terminals and 22 terminals for cars and workers.
