Israeli Ministerial Committee on National Security Resolution on Seam Zone (April 2002)

A resolution adopted by the Israeli Ministerial Committee on National Security on 16 April 2002. In response to the escalating Second Intifada, the committee decided to prevent the entrance of non-Jerusalemite Palestinians into Israel, authorizing the security organs to prepare a plan to that effect, and to immediately begin construction on a fence to separate parts of the West Bank from Israel, later known as the West Bank Separation Barrier.
