EU 'concerned' by Israel's separation wall in Bethlehem area

Sept. 28, 2013 5:18 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 29, 2013 12:37 P.M.)
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.
