BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — EU diplomats visited the village of Walaja on Thursday to voice concern over the humanitarian impact and political implications of Israel’s wall in the village.

Local officials briefed the delegation on the effects of the barrier, settlements and violence by settlers, an EU statement said.

Diplomats met residents who face hardships in their everyday life and risk to be completely separated from their work and agricultural land when the barrier is completed, the statement said.
