People from Ni’lin and supporters protest against the separation barrier taking their land in Ni’lin. These protests have been held every Friday for years.
Building of the Israeli Separation Barrier started in 2002 and continues to be built throughout the West Bank. The 709 km long barrier consists of sections of 8 metre high concrete walls and 3 metre high wire and mesh fencing. Over 85% of the barrier is built within the Green Line on confiscated Palestinian land.
