    According to the Aljazeera news channel, Israel is to build a second security fence around Gaza Strip to separate it from Jerusalem within weeks. The article quoted that the Israeli Defense Forces Chief of Staff Moshe Ya'alon told Army Radio in an interview on Sunday that the plan is to "construct by July an impoverished barrier, a temporary one, in those areas where a permanent one cannot be built at the moment, mainly because of legal reasons". The wall that is expected to be completed before the first stage of the Gaza withdrawal plan next July, will be 70 meters away from the present wall which surrounds the strip. The article also claimed that a recently released UN report showed that the new wall will "swallow not less than 10% of the most fertile lands in the West Bank, including Jerusalem."
