Chapter Summary

This chapter presents Palestine's observations on the manner in which the rules of international law apply to the factual situation in the Territory. The impact of the Wall on the basic human rights of the men, women and children in the Occupied Palestinian Territory is graphically illustrated in the United Nations reports, and by the reports of B'Tselem, the Israeli human rights organization. There are two broad categories of violations. First, there are the direct seizures of land and destruction of property that the construction of the Wall entails. Second, there are the rights that are violated as a result of the restrictions on the movement and residence of the Palestinian population that are imposed under the régime of the Wall.
