The Annexation Wall and its Associated Regime

The Annexation Wall and its Associated Regime

Since June 2002, Israel has been constructing what Professor John Dugard, former UN Special Rapporteur Special apporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967, has termed “the Annexation Wall.” From the outset, the Wall building exercise has faced international condemnation on the basis of its illegality under international law. Approximately 87 percent of the Wall will be built on occupied territory. This is also in violation of the commitment Israel made during the 1995 Interim Agreement on the West Bank and the 3 Gaza Strip that “neither side shall initiate or take any step that will change the status of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip pending the outcome of the permanent status 4 negotiation.” The construction of the Wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) and its associated regime, is having a devastating impact upon the fundamental human rights of the Palestinian population in the occupied territory.
