The wall stretches from the area near Palestinian village of Salem, east of Nablus city, to the north of Tulkarm city and features high-tech protective measures and tools.

The construction of the wall was approved in April amid height of terror waves. The project costs around 104 million USD.

Jordan and Saudi Arabia have urged Israel to stop all illegal acts which will harm the two-state solution. They stressed the need to activate international effort to resolve the Israel-Palestine dispute based on the two-state solution and called on Israel to respect historical and legal status quo of Jerusalem as well as other Islamic and Christian holy sites.
