Israel approved construction of a new section of its West Bank security fence. The Cabinet decided Wednesday that the 25-mile stretch will not include the Jewish West Bank city of Ariel, a move to mollify U.S. concerns that the project was endangering peace efforts by prompting Palestinian charges of a “land grab.” Instead, Ariel will have its own fence, and a decision about connecting it to the larger fence will be postponed for several months.
