“The ICJ issued five main legal conclusions: i) that the construction of the Wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and its associated regime violate Israeli obligations under international law; ii) that Israel must cease further construction, re-route or remove the completed sections from within the West Bank, and completely terminate the permit regime associated with it; iii) that Israel must restore all Palestinian properties confiscated for the Wall construction and pay damages for all losses; iv) that all states must ensure compliance with humanitarian law by not recognizing the wall regime and by ceasing any aid to Israel that supports it; and finally, v) that all states and the UN must take action to terminate the illegal situation arising from the construction of the Wall.”
