Experts to assess damage by Israel's wall
Three international experts will begin work of establishing a register of damage caused by Israel's construction of a wall in the occupied Palestinian territory, a UN spokesperson said on Thursday.

Appointed to the Board of United Nations Register of Damage caused by the construction of the wall in the occupied Palestinian territory, are: Harumi Hori of Japan, Matti Paavo Pellonpää from Finland and Michael F. Raboin of the United States.

They will commence their UN General Assembly mandated work on Monday at the office of the United Nations Register of Damage which is being established at the United Nations office at Vienna, the Secretary-General's spokesperson, Michele Montas, told reporters in New York on Thursday.

The board has the overall responsibility for the establishment and maintenance of the register. As a policymaking organ, the board would establish the rules and regulations governing the work of the office of the Register of Damage, determine eligibility criteria, categories of damage and the procedure of registration of claims, and have the ultimate authority in determining the inclusion of damage claims in the register.
