GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian ministry of religious affairs said the segregation wall which Israel is embarking on building now around the occupied city of Jerusalem will isolate about 100, 000 Palestinian natives living behind the wall from their holy city.

In a press release on Wednesday, the ministry stated that the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) will finish building the wall within one year according to the plan approved by deputy chief of staff Yair Naveh.

The ministry warned that if this wall was completed, no one would be allowed into the holy city or the 1948 occupied lands without permission from the IOA, noting that the Israeli municipal council in Jerusalem is trying to play down the Palestinian natives’ fears by claiming the wall is intended for their protection.

It added that the suffering of more than 100, 000 Jerusalemite citizens living behind the wall would increase, especially since the Israeli municipal council and its institutions do not provide them with any services.
