The Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (GI-ESCR), the Palestinian Grassroots Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign (Stop the Wall Campaign) and the Palestinian Farmers Union filed a Request for Inspection with the World Bank Inspection Panel. The Request for Inspection challenges the Red Sea Dead Sea Water Conveyance Study, which is examining the feasibility of a canal to divert water from the Red Sea into the Dead Sea. The aim of the project is to replenish water in the Dead Sea which has been shrinking for years.

The New "Disengagement Plan" Map shows the completed sections of the Apartheid Wall in the northern West Bank (in black) and the remaining planned sections in blue. The Occupation’s first phase of the Wall in the northern West Bank, from Zububa village in the Jenin district to Masha village in the south of the Qalqiliya district, resulted in 51 villages losing most of their agricultural lands behind the Wall. In villages like Jayyus in Qalqilya and Qaffin in Tulkarem, the Wall annexed some of the most fertile lands in the West Bank, leaving Palestinians with nothing.
