Abstract:

The Israeli government has recently begun construction of a security barrier around the West Bank which is designed to halt terrorist infiltration attacking the population centers of the Israeli Mediterranean coastal plain. The West Bank has become more than just land mass for defense from conventional attack it has been incorporated into an Israeli defensive ideology which is militarily questionable in combating terrorism. The Israeli security barrier will positively influence the factors of space, time and force enabling a better defense of the Israeli populace against terrorist infiltrators. The route of the barrier is tinder intense discussion at this time and if implemented as planned by the Sharon government will negatively affect the factors of space and force. The barrier must be constructed along the correct route in order to maximize operational factors.
