The Israeli Colonization activities in the Occupied Palestinian Territory during the Third Quarter of 2007

On 12 September 2007, the Israeli Ministry of Defense published on its website a new revised route of the Segregation Wall with changes in the Segregation Wall's length and lands isolated to what was published in April 2006. The updated map that was published in September 2007 was actually endorsed back to April 2007, but was only published on the website until that date.

 

According to the latest wall update, an increase of 28.5% (157.920 thousands Dunums) in the area slated for isolation between the 1949 Armistice Line and the line of Segregation Wall in comparison to 555 km² in 2006, where the total isolated area became 712,9 km² (712.9 thousands Dunums), 12.6% of the total area of the West Bank. In addition, the new route of the Segregation Wall showed an increase in the Segregation Wall's length by 9.5% (67 Km) to the 703 Km  recorded in April 30, 2006, by which the new length of the Segregation Wall became 770 Km.
