An Israeli border police officer carries a box with tear gas grenades as he crosses between fences in the Israel's separation barrier between the outskirts of the West Bank village of Bilin, near Ramallah, and the Jewish settlement of Modiin Illit, Sunday, June 26, 2011. Israel on Sunday began tearing down a section of its contentious West Bank separation barrier near a village that has come to symbolize Palestinian opposition to the enclosure, the military said.The rerouting marks a major victory for the residents of Bilin and the international groups that have backed its struggle.The dismantling of the section near the village of Bilin comes four years after the Supreme Court ordered it torn down, rejecting the military's argument that the route was necessary to secure the nearby Modiin Illit settlement.
