Gilo barriers to be dismantled


August 12, 2010 | 11:40 am

The concrete barriers surrounding the Jerusalem neighborhood Gilo will be removed, Israel’s military announced.

The barriers were erected eight years ago during the second Palestinian intifada to protect the residents of Gilo from regular sniper fire from the Palestinian town Beit Jala.

The decision to remove the protective structures, announced Thursday by the Israel Defense Forces, was made due to the “stable security situation in the area.”
