The UN office for coordination of humanitarian affairs in the occupied Palestinian lands (OCHA) said in a report that the Israeli separation wall would confiscate 9.5% of the West Bank area.

 

The report distributed on Friday by OCHA office in Cairo revealed that the length of the wall would reach 709 kilometers, which is double the length of the armistice line (green line) of 1948 between the West Bank and the Hebrew state.

 

It noted that 85% of the construction area was in the West Bank while 15% was in the green line, noting that eastern Jerusalem was included inside the wall.

 

The report said that 35,000 Palestinians would live in the area between the wall and the 1948 borders while 26,000 Palestinians would be surrounded from all areas by that wall, which would separate entire families from their relatives and delay students" daily trek to their schools and universities while Muslims and Christians would be barred from reaching religious sites in the holy city of Jerusalem.
