Israeli Aparthied (Hafrada)

The Israeli government’s latest act of hafrada is the opening of a new road in the central occupied West Bank on Thursday with an eight-metre wall separating Palestinian and Israeli traffic. The road connects the colonial outpost illegal settlement of Geva Binyamin, southeast of Ramallah, to a major highway that runs through the West Bank and into Israeli-occupied East Jerusalem.

There are dozens of segregated and settler-only roads across the occupied Palestinian territory, but this is the first of its kind to have a wall separating Palestinians from Israelis.

Israeli authorities have said the road is meant to ease traffic congestion at the Hizma checkpoint north of Jerusalem, and have even claimed the road offers “a solution for all populations, Israeli and Palestinian.”
