Nature brings part of Israel’s separation wall down as Palestinians rejoice (VIDEO)
Severe rain caused a section of the wall to fall at the Shuafat refugee camp near Anata in East Jerusalem on Wednesday, after the ground it was built on collapsed, revealing a wide open space where the towering concrete stood moments before.

Palestinians are seen celebrating in footage filmed at the wall, with many taking in the new unobscured view of East Jerusalem.
The Separation Barrier, dubbed the apartheid wall by critics, snakes around the West Bank and East Jerusalem, with 85 percent of the wall encroaching as much as 18km (11 miles) inside Palestinian territory. The wall is 8 meters (26 ft) high in parts and blocks Shuafat’s 30,000 residents from accessing the rest of East Jerusalem without going through checkpoints.Also on rt.com ‘Apartheid Road’ opens in West Bank, with one side for settlers & the other for Palestinians
