The Cremisan Valley in Beit Jala is under threat from construction
of Israel's separation wall.
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The European Union on Friday expressed concern about the ongoing construction of Israel's separation wall in the Bethlehem area.

"The EU missions in Jerusalem and Ramallah are concerned by the construction of the Separation Barrier, east of the Green Line, in the Cremisan Valley (Beit Jala)," a statement read.

"When completed along the planned route, the barrier will separate 58 families from their agricultural land and children from their school at the Salesian convent, as well as affect the religious site of the Cremisan Monastery."

In 2004, the International Court of Justice called on Israel to stop construction of the separation wall within the occupied West Bank.

When completed, 85 percent of the wall will run inside the West Bank.

I also concern that new stretch of the wall is too low and palestinian terrorists can easier penetrate it. See - everybody is concerned.

In 2004, the International Court of Justice called on Israel to stop construction of the separation wall within the occupied West Bank. Still no action is taken, and the EU is just concerned? #BDS

They keep on building walls, the only out for them is the sea.

Long before any Roman invaders renamed Judea to "Palestina", and
Long before Arabs started calling themselves "Palestinians" to strengthen their claims to the Land,
The Chinese built the Great Wall to keep the Mongols out, and
The Hebrew kings built a Wall around Jerusalem to keep the Arabs out.

PALESTINIAN CLASHES are such a Daily Routine, and in so many places,
that they ARE NO LONGER NEWS, any more the Sun came up this morning,
and the same is true for "EU concerns".
