The IDF last week began a massive deconstruction of the portion of the security barrier running through the Palestinian village of Bil'in.

In compliance with a 2007 order from the Supreme Court, the IDF began dismantling a large section of the barrier in preparation for construction of a new route which will constitute a land gain for the Palestinians. Before construction of the new route can begin, however, the IDF must uproot and subsequently replant dozens of Palestinian olive trees which grow in the disputed territory.
