First Phase

June 2004 marks the second full year of construction on the Apartheid Wall, which is ripping its way through Palestinian lands at an ever-increasing pace. Beginning in the North, the first phase of this colonial project stretched some 145km through the Jenin, Tulkarem, and Qalqilya districts, with devestating effect. 200,000 people living in the area were directly affected by the Wall, with 14,680 dunums of land razed for the Wall's footprint, with an additional 121,455 dunums of land annexed, and some 102,000 trees uprooted.

The map presented here was produced October 7, 2002 by the Israeli military. It was the first military map to become available indicating that the settlement Alfe Menashe, south of Qalqiliya, would be included on the west side of the Wall—in the de facto annexed area by and for Israel. The military has yet to make public a map of the Wall’s entire path.

There has yet to be an “official” map of the Wall’s entire path released by the Israeli military. The following map was the first to become available, on September 18th 2002, in a case filed by the Palestinian human rights group, LAW, to the Israeli courts regarding residents’ lands affected by the Wall in the villages Attil, Baqa ash Sharqiya, Deir al Ghusun, Nazlat ‘Isa, and Quffin. At this time, the route of the Wall was to extend for 115 km and did not include the effective annexation of the settlement Alfe Menashe, south of Qalqiliya.
