Israel has begun tearing down a wall near Hebron 10 years after a court order to do so, according to the New York Time.
The wall was 25 miles long with a height of 32 feet in total. But what the wall really meant to help with additional security for the Jewish settlers of the area.
As of February, 2006, the high court ruled the wall had to come down. There were farmers that the wall was preventing from crossing the roads with their livestock, and the wall also violated the rights of Palestinian residents in 21 rural communities.
When the government refused to demolish the wall, the Association for Civil Rights tried to get the state held in contempt of court.
