Fatah Upset Over Plans to Finish Security Barrier
Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad on Friday charged that Israel's decision to resume construction of its security barrier in Judea and Samaria is intended to "judaize" Jerusalem.
"The role of the apartheid wall around Jerusalem is to facilitate the annexation of settlement blocs" Hamad said in a statement.
Her remarks follow on the heels of he head of Israel's administration for building the wall Ofer Hindi telling Israel's Supreme Court on Thursday that construction on the barrier would resume around Gush Etzion in the coming weeks.
The resumption of construction comes after a a five-year freeze due to budget constraints.
