Sunday marked the first day of a massive rerouting of the IDF security barrier along the Palestinian village of Bil'in.

Responding to a court ruling by the Supreme Court, IDF forces will alter the course of the fence and in doing so enlarge Palestinian territory. The rerouting and construction involves the uprooting and replanting of dozens of Palestinian olive trees.
