One Reason Shiloh Has Not Surrounded Itself With A Fence


The civil administration has drafted plans to reroute illegal security fences constructed around settlements in the Binyamin region of the West Bank, including the one that encircles the community of Ofra, according to a statement the civil administration made Sunday to the High Court of response to a petition against the fence...filed by the non-governmental organization Yesh Din with the help of attorneys Michael Sfard, Shlomy Zachery and Avisar Lev.

They charged that the fence was illegally constructed on land belonging to the Palestinian villages of Silwad and Ein Yabrud and that is presence was preventing Palestinian farmers from accessing their lands.

In a statement to the court the civil administration said that it was preparing a new route...

No fence, no petition, no court case.
