Israeli army dismantles fabricated school rooms in Jordan Valley

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- The PA official, responsible for the Jordan Valley, in Tubas, Mu’taz Bisharat, said that the Israeli army dismantled fabricated rooms used as classes in the northern Jordan Valley.

He added that the Israeli army also set a military checkpoint, preventing locals and students’ parents from reaching the school.

Last week, Israeli forces expelled the principal of Al Malih school from the area for ten days.

Israeli authorities had notified the demolition of the school several times last year and also this year.

Israeli court delays rule on forced expulsion of family in Batn Al Hawa

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- The Israeli Supreme court on Monday delayed a rule on the forced expulsion of the Dweik family from its house in the neighborhood of Batn Al Hawa in occupied Jerusalem. The court did not determine the time of the new rule session. The rule would determine the fate of 86 other families in the neighborhood.

The attorney of the Deweiks, Hussam Siyam, said the session was delayed in order to examine an appeal against the decision to forcefully expel the Dweiks from their house in the Silwan neighborhood of Batn Al Hawa, in which they have been living for over 60 years.

Siyam added that the rule is crucial as it would determine the fate of 86 families, threatened with forced expulsion in the neighborhood.

Batn Al Hawa is one of 12 neighborhoods in Silwan in occupied Jerusalem. It is located to the South of Al Aqsa mosque.

The neighborhood is one of six others, facing the danger of ethnic cleaning in favor of settler organizations or settlement projects or demolition.

Batn Al Hawa contains 80 houses. Israeli settlement organization Ateret Cohanim had distributed eviction orders for the owners of the 80 houses, claiming that Jewish people used to own the land in the period between 1860 and 1880, which puts nearly 726 Palestinians at risk of forced displacement.

For 2nd day in row, Israeli forces demolish, sabotage Al-Yusufiya Cemetery in Jerusalem

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces since the early morning hours of Tuesday started demolishing and sabotaging parts of the Al-Yusufiya Cemetery, one of the most important and prominent Islamic cemeteries in the occupied city of Jerusalem.

Local sources said that the forces earlier today stormed the site and started again demolishing and sabotaging parts of the Al-Yusufiya Cemetery, a step that came after the Israeli court ordered the Israeli municipality in occupied Jerusalem to resume the demolishing works of the land to establish a biblical national park.

They are not even letting the dead rest in peace! This #Palestinian mother is hugging her son’s grave, Alaa Nababta, as the Israeli bulldozers are destroying the Islamic Al-Yusufiya Cemetery in occupied Jerusalem to create a “national park” instead.

Israeli settlers were also seen cutting olive trees at the Cemetery under the occupation forces protection.

Yusufiya Cemetery is located north of the al-Rahma Gate cemetery, adjacent to the eastern wall of the occupied city of Jerusalem.

It has been targeted for years by Israeli excavations which reached archaeological structures close to the doorstep of the al-Asbat Gate.

The occupation municipality has been working to surround the Cemetery with Judaizing projects, paths and Talmudic parks along the eastern wall of Jerusalem and adjacent to the cemetery to hide the features of the original paths and historical sites surrounding the cemetery.

In this context, in December 202, the Israeli occupation authorities demolished the wall of the cemetery adjacent to the al-Asbat Gate and removed its archaeological stairs in addition to the stairs leading to the martyrs’ cemetery.

The Cemetery houses the graves of Palestinian, Jordanian and Iraqi martyrs who were killed by Israeli militias during the 1967 war in Palestine.

In 2014, the occupation authorities prevented the burial in the cemetery’s northern area and removed 20 graves of Jordanian soldiers who were martyred in 1967 in what is known as the Cemetery of the Martyrs and the Monument of the Unknown Soldier.

Pictures| Israeli forces demolish 4-under-construction Palestinian stores in Ramallah

Ramallah (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces earlier on Tuesday demolished four-under-construction Palestinian commercial stores in Deir Qaddis village, west of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.

Local sources said Israeli forces, with military protection, escorted bulldozers to the village of Deir Qaddis earlier today and demolished four under construction commercial stores owned by Palestinian residents.

Deir Qaddis has a population of some 2,600 and occupies a total area of 8,053 dunams and it is located 16 kilometers to the northwest of Ramallah city.

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.

‘Israel’ has seized at least 2,735 dunams (34 percent) belonging to the Deir Qaddis village for the construction of three nearby colonial settlements, namely Mod‘in Illit, Nili and Na‘aleh, which strangle the village from the south and the north.

‘Israel’ has also constructed a section of the apartheid wall on the village’s land, confiscating and isolating 4,272 dunams (accounting for 53 percent) for colonial settlement activities.

Several nations, international bodies denounce Israel’s plans to expand settlements in West Bank

Several nations and international bodies have expressed deep concerns over Israel’s Sunday announcement of plans to approve the building of over 1,355 housing units in illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

A statement by the the Egyptian Foreign Ministry denounced Israel’s announcement of settlement expansion and called on the occupation state to stop unilateral acts that can harm the establishment of the Palestinian state and achieve peace.

It said that it is following with great concern the expansion of the settlements, which would harm the geographic contiguity of the Palestinian territories, gradually eliminate the two-state solution and the future of the Palestinian state.

France also denounced the Israeli announcement, calling ‘Israel’ to “halt any unilateral step that undermines the two-state solution, a solution based on agreed upon international parameters and that is the only one that has the ability to lead a just and sustainable peace in the region,” the French foreign ministry said.

Jordanian Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Haitham Abu al-Fool also slammed such a plan as a violation of international law and relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions.

He stressed that “the Israeli settlement policy in the occupied Palestinian territories, including settlement construction or expansion or confiscation of property or the displacement of Palestinians, is an illegal policy that undermines efforts to establish calm and the chances of a two-state solution that would bring about a comprehensive and just peace.”

The US also expressed serious concerns over the announcement,

“We are concerned about the announcement of a meeting next week to advance settlement units deep in the West Bank, and believe it is critical for Israel and the Palestinian Authority to refrain from unilateral steps that exacerbate tension and undercut efforts to advance a negotiated two-state solution,” said US State Department spokesman Ned Price.

“This certainly includes settlement activity, as well as retroactive legalization of settlement outposts.”

The Arab League also denounced the Israeli plans, saying the new Israeli settlement crime announced by the occupation authorities yesterday comes as part of the continuous and escalating Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people, especially in the context of continuing settlement plans.

The Pan-Arab organization also said these plans aim at Judaizing the occupied Palestinian territories, including Jerusalem, to end and bury any hope or possibility for the two-state solution that expresses the choice and will of the international community and embodies the resolutions of international legitimacy.

The European Union spokesperson also condemned Israel’s announcement, saying “settlements are illegal under international law and constitute a major obstacle to the achievement of the Two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace between the parties.”

“The European Union has consistently made clear that it will not recognize any changes to the pre-1967 borders, including with regard to Jerusalem, other than those agreed by both sides,” said the EU spokesperson, calling the occupation government “to halt settlement construction and to not proceed with the announced tenders.”

The UN has also slammed such an announcement, saying it is “deeply concerned by continued Israeli settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem,” its Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Tor Wennesland said while reiterating that “all settlements are illegal under international law, remain a substantial obstacle to peace, and must cease immediately.”

On Sunday, Israel’s so-called Ministry of Housing published 13 new tenders for the construction of 1,355 housing units in 7 illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank and another tender for the construction of an additional 83 units in the illegal settlement of Givat Hamatos in East Jerusalem.

These tenders are in addition to about 3,000 housing units in the illegal settlements that will be promoted this coming Wednesday, according to the Israeli anti-settlement watchdog Peace Now, which said the publication of a tender means that the government wants to start construction.

92% of the housing units in the tenders published yesterday are in settlements deep in the occupied West Bank that ‘Israel’ will have to evacuate under a permanent agreement, Peace Now said.

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.
