Bulldozers Demolish Irrigation Line in Jordan Valley

Occupation bulldozers demolished, on Sunday, Palestinian-owned water pipes in the northeastern occupied West Bank village of Atuf, the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA) reported.

Palestinian official, Mutaz Basharat, stated that the heavy equipment destroyed four kilometers of water line used by farmers to irrigate their crops in Atuf village, east of Tammun town in the Jordan Valley.

It is important to note that the occupation authorities frequently demolish and confiscate the essential equipment of Palestinian farmers and civilians in an attempt to force them to leave their rightfully-owned lands.

In a serious violation, the army recently poured cement into a Palestinian water spring near Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank, permanently closing it.

Israel orders halt on construction of 22 houses in Nablus-district village

NABLUS, Monday, November 29, 2021 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation authorities today ordered a halt on the construction of twenty-two houses in Qusra village, southeast of Nablus, according to local sources.

Deputy head of the village council, Imad Jamil, said that Israeli forces delivered stop-construction orders against twenty-two houses besides to a demolition order against an agricultural shed in the village.

The “Civil Administration” is the name Israel gives to the body administering its military occupation of the West Bank.

Soldiers in the oxymoronically named Civil Administration determine where Palestinians may live, where and when they may travel (including to other parts of the occupied territories like Gaza and East Jerusalem), whether they can build or expand homes on their own land, whether they own that land at all, whether an Israeli settler can takeover that land among others.

Awqaf: Israeli authorities banned Adhan in Ibrahimi mosque 525 times in ten months

Occupied Hebron (QNN)- The Ministry of Awqaf and Religious Affairs on Monday said that the Israeli Authorities banned Adhan in the Ibrahimi mosque in occupied Hebron 525 times during the last ten months.

The ministry documented Israeli violations against the mosque and worshipers. The violations also included random searches, military flying checkpoints, Judaization, and raids, the latest of which was a raid by the Israeli President to celebrate Jewish holidays.

Israeli authorities also prevented the Hebron Reconstruction Committee from restoring parts of the Ibrahimi mosque and closed the mosque for additional five days using COVID 189 as a pretext.

They also allowed settlers to raid the mouse and dance inside while preventing worshipers repeatedly from entering.

The violations also include allowing settlers’ parties in the mosque, throwing tear gas bombs at worshipers, IOF raids, preventing workers in the mosque from reaching their jobs, and raising an Israeli flag on the mosque.

In the same vein, an Israeli court approved a plan to build a lift for settlers only in the Ibrahimi mosque. The occupation state also started digging operations in the courtyard of the mosque, which is declared by the UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre a Palestinian world heritage site.

Palestinian protest in occupied Haifa against femicide

Occupied Haifa (QNN)- Dozens of Palestinians in occupied Haifa protested today against femicide, however, Israeli cops cracked down on the protest, according to Al Jarmaq.

The protesters carried pictures of victims of femicides, as well as, placards with slogans calling for protecting women and their rights.

The protest is part of a 16-day-long campaign to combat violence against women. The campaign, which started on the 25th of this month, will organize protests in eight areas in the 1948-occupied territories, in which native Palestinians are concentrated.

In 2021, 15 Palestinian women were killed, mostly by their relatives or spouses.

Last week, the “Women Against Violence” association said that the Israeli police deal with crimes against Palestinian women in a discriminatory manner. It explained noting that the conviction rate in crimes against Palestinian women is only 34%, while the sentences periods for those convicted barely reach five years.

Meanwhile, the conviction rate in crimes against Israeli women reach 75%and the lowest sentence for those convicted was 14 to 18 years.

Israeli forces demolish Palestinian-owned workshop in occupied Jerusalem

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces, using heavy machinery, demolished a Palestinian-owned workshop in the town of Anata, northeast of the occupied city of Jerusalem, earlier on Monday.

Under the pretext of lacking an Israeli-issued construction permit, local sources said Israeli forces earlier today escorted bulldozer to the area and started demolishing a Palestinian private-owned workshop in the Anata town after raiding it.

The workshop, used for construction materials, belongs to the Jerusalemite Mousa Zeiad.

Obtaining an Israeli building permit in occupied Jerusalem is close to being impossible, forcing Palestinians to risk building on their lands without a permit.

Almost 75 percent of applications for a permit by the Palestinian citizens of Jerusalem are rejected by the Israeli occupation municipality, according to rights groups.

Using the pretext of illegal building, ‘Israel’ demolishes houses and structures on a regular basis to restrict Palestinian expansion in occupied Jerusalem.

At the same time, the Israeli occupation municipality and the occupation government built tens of thousands of housing units in illegal settlements in occupied East Jerusalem for Jews with a goal to offset the demographic balance in favour of the Israeli settlers in the occupied city.

‘Israel’ has been moving its citizens into the occupied Jerusalem neighbourhoods since the 1980s. This has resulted in numerous human rights violations, including the forced displacement of Palestinian residents and demolition of homes and structures.

Hundreds of Palestinian families are being threatened with forced displacement and house demolitions by illegal settler groups, fully supported by the Israeli government.

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.

UN marks Int’l Day of Solidarity with Palestinians, calls for resolution

Geneva (QNN)- On 29 November every year, the United Nations (UN) observes the International Day of Solidarity with Palestinian People.

This year, the UN Secretary-General António Guterres reaffirmed commitment to the Palestinian people in their quest ‘to achieve their rights and build a future of peace and dignity for both Palestinians and Israelis’.

“On this International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, the situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory — including East Jerusalem — continues to pose a significant challenge to international peace and security. Persistent violations of the rights of Palestinians along with the expansion of settlements risk eroding the prospect of a two-State solution,” he said in a statement on this occasion.

“The overall goal remains two states living side-by-side in peace and security, fulfilling the legitimate national aspirations of both peoples, with borders based on the 1967 lines and Jerusalem as the capital of both states,” said the UN chief.

He called on all the parties “to avoid unilateral steps that would undermine the chances for a peaceful resolution of the conflict based on international law and relevant United Nations resolutions. I further call on the parties to engage constructively to end the closure of Gaza and improve the living conditions of all Palestinians under occupation.”

Guterres added, “Together, let us reaffirm our unwavering commitment to the Palestinian people in their quest to achieve their inalienable rights and build a future of peace, justice, security, and dignity for both Palestinians and Israelis.”

He also called on UN Member States “to provide timely and predictable funding” to allow the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees, UNRWA, to conduct its vital work.
