Before the completion of the first continuous segment July from the beginning of the Second Intifada, 73 Palestinian suicide bombings were carried out from the West Bank, killing Israelis and injuring over 1, After the completion of the first continuous segment through the end ofthere were only 12 attacks based in the West Bank, killing 64 people and wounding Maariv also stated that Palestinian militants, including a senior member of Islamic Jihadhad confirmed that the barrier made it much harder to conduct attacks inside Israel.
Since the completion of the fence in the area of Tulkarm and Qalqilyah in Junethere have been no successful attacks from those areas. All attacks were intercepted or the suicide bombers detonated prematurely.
According to Haaretza report by the Shin Beit concluded that "[t]he fence does make it harder for them [terrorists]" but that attacks in decreased due to increased pursuing of Palestinian militants by the Israeli army and intelligence organizations, Hamas's increased political activity, and a truce among Palestinian militant groups in the Palestinian Territories.
Haaretz reported, "[t]he security fence is no longer mentioned as the major factor in preventing suicide bombings, mainly because the terrorists have found ways to bypass it. The route inside the West Bank severs communities, people's access to services, livelihoods and religious and cultural amenities.
In addition, plans for the Barrier's exact route and crossing points through it are often not fully revealed until days before construction commences. This has led to considerable anxiety amongst Palestinians about how their future lives will be impacted.
The land between the Barrier and the Green Line constitutes some of the most fertile in the West Bank. It is currently the home for 49, West Bank Palestinians living in 38 villages and towns.
One 8 meter-high concrete section of this wall follows the Green Line between the city and the nearby Trans-Israel Highway.
According to the BBC, this section, referred to as an "anti-sniper wall," is intended to prevent gun attacks against Israeli motorists on the Trans-Israel Highway. Inthe Israeli Supreme Court ordered the government to change the route of the barrier in this area to ease movement of Palestinians between Qalqilyah and five surrounding villages.
In the same ruling, the court rejected the arguments that the fence must be built only on the Green Line. The ruling cited the topography of the terrain, security considerations, and sections 43 and 52 of The Hague Regulations and Article 53 of the Fourth Geneva Convention as reasons for this rejection.
New directives stated that every Palestinian over the age of twelve living in the enclaves created in the closed area have to obtain a "permanent resident permit" from the Civil Administration to enable them to continue to live in their homes, approximately 27, people in all.
Other residents of the West Bank have to obtain special permits to enter the area. The Jerusalem Post reports that, for some Palestinians who are Israeli citizens living in the Israeli Arab town of Umm el-Fahm population 42, near Jenin, the barrier has "significantly improved their lives" because, on one hand, it prevents would-be thieves or terrorists from coming to their town and, on the other hand, has increased the flow of customers from other parts of Israel who would normally have patronised Palestinian business in the West Bank, resulting in an economic boom.
The report states that the downsides are that the barrier has divided families in half and "damaged Israeli Arabs' solidarity with the Palestinians living on the other side of the Green Line". Physical obstacles have also been removed in Ramallah and al-Bireh Governorate and Jerusalem Governorate where the Barrier is under construction.
Seam Zone and House demolition in the Israeli—Palestinian conflict Parts of the barrier are built on land seized from Palestinians,   or between Palestinians and their lands  In a report, the UN said that the most recent barrier route allocates more segments to be built on the Green Line itself compared to previous draft routes of the barrier.

The Israeli Supreme Court says the Israeli government's rejection of accusations of a de facto annexation of these wells, stating that "the construction of the fence does not affect the implementation of the water agreements determined in the interim agreement".
A plan to build another barrier between the West Bank and the Jordan valley was abandoned because of international condemnation after the International Court ruling, instead instituting a restrictive permit regime for Palestinians. In addition, almost a third of West Bank villages will suffer from lack of access to healthcare.
After completion, many residents may lose complete access to emergency care at night. In towns near Jerusalem Abu Dis and al-Eizariyafor example, average time for an ambulance to travel to the nearest hospital has increased from 10 minutes to over minutes. Economic changes See also: Farming is a primary source of income in the Palestinian communities situated along the Barrier's route, an area that constitutes one of the most fertile areas in the West Bank.
The harm to the farming sector is liable to have drastic economic effects on the residents — whose economic situation is already very difficult — and drive many families into poverty. Israel chose not to accept ICJ jurisdiction nor make oral statements, and instead submitted a page written statement containing the views of the Government of Israel on Jurisdiction and Propriety to the Court.
The ICJ said that an occupying power cannot claim that the lawful inhabitants of the occupied territory constitute a "foreign" threat for the purposes of Article 51 of the UN Charter. It also explained that necessity may constitute a circumstance precluding wrongfulness under certain very limited circumstances, but that Article 25 of the International Law Commission's Articles on Responsibility of States for Internationally Wrongful Acts ARSIWA bars a defense of necessity if the State has contributed to the situation of necessity.
The Court cited illegal interference by the government of Israel with the Palestinian's national right to self-determination; and land confiscations, house demolitions, the creation of enclaves, and restrictions on movement and access to water, food, education, health care, work, and an adequate standard of living in violation of Israel's obligations under international law.
The Court also said that Israeli settlements had been established and that Palestinians had been displaced in violation of Article 49, paragraph 6, of the Fourth Geneva Convention. The organization Christians for Israel helped bring the No. Among other things the determination of the route of the barrier was based on political considerations, the attempt to leave the settlements to the west of the barrier, and protection of access routes for religious sites - none of which are at all related to military considerations.
This situation is likely to render the entire separation barrier project illegal according to international law.
However, it did rule that the barrier is legal in principle and accepted the Israeli government's assertion that it is a security measure.
