Bilin Fence Moves, but Protests to Continue
The IDF announced Wednesday that it has nearly finished moving the Judea and Samaria security barrier near the Palestinian Authority-controlled village of Bilin. The move follows a High Court ruling – given after the barrier was built – ordering that it be moved to the west, a move that will give Bilin more land while limiting the possibility of expansion in the nearby Jewish community of Modiin Illit (Kiryat Sefer).
IDF officials said they do not expect the move to end the violent weekly riots against the barrier held in Bilin and the nearby village of Nalin.
