Where Law Stands on the Apartheid Wall
- 0

SR - In June 2002, the Israeli cabinet approved the construction of a “continuous fence” in the West Bank. In July 2004, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) declared this barrier illegal, choosing to refer to it as a “wall”.
Their decision included three specific reasons for the wall’s illegality:
1) It constitutes de facto annexation
2) It is not justified on security grounds
3) It violates human rights law
Yet today the Israeli government continues to build the wall.

The infographic Where Law Stands on the Wall describes the detail of ICJ’s decision. Today, 9 years on, and despite wide condemnation, little has been done by the international community to hold the Israeli government accountable for its ongoing disregard of international law.
