Danny Tirza, the Defense Ministry's chief architect for the West Bank security fence, was fired on Monday by Defense Minister Amir Peretz who was said to be unhappy with Tirza's performance in the sensitive post. According to news reports, Peretz was not satisfied with Tirza's work and was interested in making changes to the planned route of the fence while focusing solely on Israel's security needs and not on the inclusion of additional settlements.
