Palestinians say West Bank has its own Berlin Wall
Text size Aa Aa

Palestinians have used the Berlin Wall anniversary to highlight their anger over what they see as an equally unjust and damaging division.

Israeli’s security barrier runs along most of the West Bank border. Outside the city of Ramallah a group of protesters tore down one segment, triggering an immediate response from the Israeli security forces, who fired rubber bullets and tear gas. Israel says the wall is intended to protect it from suicide bomb attacks and is not a permanent structure. Palestinians say it is simply an attempt to grab parts of their territory.
