Report: Israel plans to complete wall around E1

Jan. 21, 2013 11:47 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 23, 2013 10:09 A.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak plans to finish building the separation wall around planned Israeli settlement zone E1 which cuts off the West Bank from Jerusalem, Israeli media reported.

The proposal to close a three-kilometer gap in the wall will prevent Palestinian access to E1, where activists erected a tented protest village last week, Israeli daily Haaretz reported on Monday.

If completed, the wall would surround Palestinian village al-Zayyem on both sides, the newspaper said.

Barak also decided to move ahead with building a road past al-Zayyem for Palestinians to travel from the southern to northern West Bank without entering Israeli settlements in E1.

The plan will be put to Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu for approval next week.
