Palestinian child waved the palestinian flag to celebrate the decision by the Israeli Supreme Court over the route of the controversial separation barrier being constructed by Israel in the occupied West Bank village of Bilin several kilometers from the city of Ramallah.

The court ruled that the route of the separation barrier in the Bilin area was "highly prejudicial" to the villagers and demanded that the government map out an alternative route "within a reasonable period".
