The dynamics of the Israel-Palestine conflict are increasingly being defined by the 700-km wall encircling Palestinian communities in the West Bank and Gaza. The Wall has fundamentally altered and reshaped the possibilities and challenges of both the armed struggle and the popular resistance to Israel’s occupation.
He will also discuss the situation and future of Palestinian political prisoners, particularly in light of the recent prisoner exchange.
