High Court calls for reassessment of security fence route
The High Court of Justice determined that the route of the security fence adjacent to the village of Batir near Beitar Illit and southwest of Jerusalem, must be reassessed and that conclusions on the matter must be submitted within 90 days.


The decision was made in light of an appeal filed by the Friends of the Earth organization and residents of Batir against the security fence's route, which they claim threatens to ruin the ancient agricultural terraces in the area. (Billie Frenkel)
