Israel/Palestinian Territories– Resumption of security wall construction in Cremisan Valley (April 8, 2016)

France is concerned by the Israeli authorities’ resumption of construction of the separation wall in the West’ Bank’s Cremisan Valley, which will affect several dozen Palestinian families in Beit Jala.

This wall is a new obstacle to economic and social development in the town of Bethlehem.

According to the opinion issued by the International Court of Justice on July 9, 2004, building the wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territories is illegal under international law.

We consequently ask Israel to reverse this decision.
