 GAZA,  Dr. Ahmed Bahar, the first deputy speaker of the Palestinian legislative council (PLC), has described the underground steel wall being built by Egypt at its borders with Gaza Strip as the "death wall".

He charged in a press conference on Monday held by the association of Palestinian scholars at the PLC premises in Gaza that the wall aims at besieging and starving the Palestinian people.

Bahar appealed to Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak to issue immediate orders to halt construction of the wall and to open the Rafah land crossing, adding that the steel wall is a legal, national, humanitarian and religious violation.

He underlined that Gaza would never pose a security threat to Egypt but rather the "Zionist entity is the one threatening Egypt's security".

Meanwhile, the Israeli TV channel 10 has said that the steel wall was being built in accordance with Israeli demands and specifications.

Media reports said that Egypt completed five kilometers of the steel wall or almost 50% of the total length of the Egyptian borders with Gaza Strip.
