Resistance factions condemn Saudi judicial decisions against Palestinian and Jordanian citizens

Gaza (QNN)- Resistance factions condemned Saudi judicial decisions against 69 Palestinian and Jordanian citizens, who have been accused of supporting the Palestinian resistance.

Hamas leader, Mahmoud Al Zahhar, said the Saudi decisions against the prisoners were not expected. He noted that “the trials are not even legitimate” because they are not based on any crimes.

“The Saudi rulings are a response to demands made by zionists”, Zahhar said in a TV. statement. “Is fundraising for those who need help in Palestine a crime against Saudi Arabia now?”, he wondered.

Zahhar also stressed that the decisions are political.

Meanwhile, the Islamic Jihad (IJ) movement strongly condemned the decisions and described them as being unjust and unfair.

“The unjust and unjustifiable decisions go against Islamic law and Arabs’ values, which call for defending Al Aqsa mosque and our pressed people”, a statement by the IJ movement read.

Fateh Al Intifada movement said that “the unjust Saudi decisions against Palestinian and Jordanian detainees are political and illegal and they are a stain on the Saudi regime’s reputation, which has been playing a conspiratorial role against our people and cause to serve the zionist occupation.”

“The detainees did not commit any crime against Saudi Arabia. The unreasonable decisions aim at pleasing the zionist entity and demonize the fight and resistance of our people.”

Israeli forces raid Beita village, arrest 6 Palestinians

Nablus (QNN) An armed Israeli occupation forces raided the village of Beita in Nablus in the occupied West Bank earlier on Monday and arrested 6 Palestinian residents.

Local sources said the armed forces raided the village in the early morning hours, stormed the residents’ houses and arrested 6 Palestinians.

Beita village becomes a site of weekly protests against the Israeli occupation and settlement expansion, which are often suppressed by Israeli forces.

The occupation authorities evacuated dozens of Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement of Evyatar in Beita, after a deal was reached between a settler leader and the occupation government of new Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

Yossi Dagan, head of settler organisation the Shomron Regional Council, struck a deal with Israel’s defence minister, Benny Gantz, and interior minister Ayelet Shaked, that will turn Evitar illegal outpost into a religious school and a military base for the Israeli forces.

‘Israel’ will keep about 50 caravan houses settlers installed in May on Palestinian lands belonging to the residents of the occupied West Bank village of Beita, while settlers would “return” to the land when Israeli occupation authorities designate it as “state-owned.”

In early May, a group of Israeli settlers set up caravans on Jabal Sabih, and with the help of Israeli occupation forces have since prevented any Palestinian access to the area.

Within days, settlers installed mobile houses, built roads and raised an Israeli flag over the settlement.

Since then, Beita has witnessed several protests against the new settler outpost on Jabal Sabih, which lies on the southern outskirts of the village and comprises an estimated 30 percent of Beita’s entire land area.

The livelihoods of at least 17 Palestinian families – more than 100 people – are threatened as they depend on harvesting their olives on land they have owned for generations.

Israeli forces demolish 3 Palestinian structures, water tank in Jenin

Jenin (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces demolished Palestinian-owned structures and a water tank in the city of Jenin in the occupied West Bank on Monday.

Earlier today, the forces stormed Ya’bad town in Jenin and demolished three Palestinian stores and a water tank used to irrigate crops in the area under the pretext of lacking an Israeli-issued construction permit.

Israeli occupation constantly demolishes structures and houses of Palestinians in Area C, claiming they were built without a permit, rarely, if ever, issued for Palestinians.

It does not allow any development there while using the occupied land for its illegal settlement activity.

Under the 1995 Oslo Accords between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, was divided into three portions — Area A, B and C.

Area C is currently home to 300,000 Palestinians, the vast majority of whom are Bedouins and herding communities who predominantly live in tents, caravans and caves.

Thus, house demolitions, confiscation of the most basic infrastructure and military training exercises are part of everyday reality in the area.

There are nearly 700,000 Israeli settlers living in 256 illegal settlements and outposts scattered across the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Israeli settlements are illegal under international law.
