The UN office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs (OCHA) said Wednesday that the separation wall which is built by Israel in the West Bank has serious humanitarian impacts on the daily life of Palestinians.
In a statement, the UN office demanded Israel to implement the decision issued five years ago by the international court of justice in The Hague which called on Israel to tear down the separation wall.
It also said that Israel still ignores the decision and insists on expanding the wall, adding that 60 percent out of a total 709 kilometers of the wall was built so far.
The international court of justice in The Hague had condemned in July 2004 the construction of this wall as illegal and called on Israel to remove it.
