VoxBox: Palestine Wall 10 Years
Israel started building a separation wall between its territory and the West Bank to thwart attacks ten years ago, almost to the day. The wall -- part concrete, part fence -- has dramatically affected Palestinians as it doesn't follow the natural border between Israel and the West Bank but deeply encroaches into Palestinian land, depriving many of their livelihoods and freedom of movement. In Bethlehem, residents found an unusual way to use the 8-meter-high concrete structure to their advantage: as a giant screen on which to broadcast the Euro 2012 soccer cup. Al-Monitor met with soccer fans on June 13 as they watched the match pitting Germany against the Netherlands.
