The northwestern section of the Separation Wall envelops several Israeli settlements that lie outside the Jerusalem municipal boundaries: Giv’at Ze’ev, Giv’on, Giv’on Hadasha, Beit Horon, and Har Homa. Two Israeli-only roads, 443 and 436,1 are also encompassed in this section. They intersect within the enclave at the Giv’at Ze’ev junction, connecting the settlement with central Jerusalem and Modi’in Illit to the west, all the way to the coast.
The route of the wall in this section runs well beyond the Green Line and the Jerusalem municipal boundaries, which surround the Ramon Allon settlement. As a result, the Israeli government expropriated the vast farmlands that belong to Palestinian villages and surround this section of the wall, including the West Bank villages of Beit Surik, Beit Ijza, Beit Biddu, Beit Duqqu, al-Tira, Beit ‘Ur al-Fawqa, Beitunya, al-Jib, and Beit Hanina al-Balad.
