(NEWS) Video: Gilo Security Wall Comes Tumbling Down - For Now

"The IDF has begun removing the wall which was put up in 2001 in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo when it came under intense near-daily rifle attacks from the adjacent Arab neighborhood of Beit Jalla. Israel National News TV was on the scene Sunday and spoke with the IDF representative and local residents.

'We were approached by the Jerusalem municipality, which requested that we remove this wall,' explained IDF Home Front Command's Brig.-Gen. Chezi Revivo. 'After a professional assessment of the current situation at the IDF Home Front Command, the Home Front commander issued the dismantling order.'"
