The European Union and the Palestinian Authority inaugurated the European Road in Barta’a al-Sharqia, near Jenin, located in Area C, on 22 July. The European Union provided €500,000 for the construction and rehabilitation of the road.

The European Road is 1650 meters in length and will serve 5,000 Palestinians. The road will ease the movement of Palestinians in the area given the lack of access to infrastructure services in Area C. The road is also intended at enhancing community connectivity, integration, and commercial activities.

The EU works with the Palestinian Authority to develop Area C and support Palestinian communities. This includes projects promoting economic development and improving the quality of life of Palestinian communities in the areas of private sector development, environment and agriculture.
