Hani Fannoun, the deputy-mayor of Nahhalin, said several army jeeps invaded the town before the soldiers handed Atef Jamil al-Nees an order for the demolition of his home.

He added that the home, about eighty square/meters, was recently built, and the Palestinian is conducting the final preparations before moving in with his family.

The Palestinian was informed that he needs to demolish his home within 96 hours, or else the army would demolish it using its equipment, impose high fines and fees in addition billing him for the demolition costs.

The army claims the home was built without a permit from the so-called “Civil Administration Office”, the administrative branch of Israel’s illegal occupation of the West Bank, although the local town council licensed it.

Israel To Build Illegal Colonies in Occupied Jerusalem

The Israeli “Custodian General’s Unit” of the “Justice Ministry” is planning to build hundreds of units in illegal Israel colonies in occupied Jerusalem, including in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, a move that would lead to the displacement of hundreds of Palestinians from their homes.

Israel daily Haaretz said the plans being promoted would result in extensive constructions in the colonies and “housing projects,” for Jewish settlers in East Jerusalem.

It added that the move would include the eviction of hundreds of Palestinians from their homes and neighborhoods.

Haaretz also said it obtained documents revealing that the proposed plans include a new colony in Sheikh Jarrah, and another near Damascus Gate, in addition to one colony in Sur Baher town, and another in Beit Hanina.

It added that the Israeli Justice Ministry said that it is examining plans “for a construction project” in Sheikh Jarrah and denied the existence of other plans.

All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory”.

‘Israel’ releases Sheikh Raed Salah

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Israeli authorities on Monday released Sheikh Raed Salah after 17 months of detention over political activity in the 1948-occupied territories.

Local sources said hundreds of Palestinians gathered in front of Megiddo prison this morning to celebrate the release of the political leader.

Sheikh Salah had spent his jail time in solitary confinement. Israeli authorities had refused to announce the place of his release, which was a matter of concern for his family and supporters.

The occupation state had arrested Sheikh Salah and accused him of “inciting resistance”. His trials extended for three years before he was sentenced to 17 months in jail.

Sheikh Salah was arrested several times before. He has spent most of his life in Israeli jails. Many Palestinians look up to him as the leader, who spearheaded a national campaign in the 1948-occupied territories to defend Al Aqsa mosque and expose Israel’s plans to demolish it.

In November 2015, the occupation state issued a decision outlawing the Islamic Movement, a political party that Sheikh Salah led.

Within 96 hours, ‘Israel’ orders Palestinian family to self-demolish house in Bethlehem

A member of the Adgluni family watching his house being demolished by Israeli authorities, East Jerusalem, January 27, 2014. The Israeli authorities claimed the house was built on lands that do not belong to the family

Bethlehem (QNN)- Israeli occupation authotities handed a Palestinian family a notice on Sunday, ordering it to self-demolish its under-construction house in the Nahalin town, west of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.

Local sources said Israeli occupation forces yesterday notified a Palestinian resident of the Nahalin town that he has only 96 hours to demolish his two-storey-under-construction house, using the pretext of building without a permit.

On 7 December, the Israeli occupation forces raided the town of Nahalin, escorted bulldozers to the area and started demolishing three agricultural rooms owned by Palestinian residents, before brutally assaulting the residents who tried to prevent the demolition operation. The three rooms are located in two different parts of the town.

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 by the occupation authorities.

The occupation authorities also do not allow any development there while using the occupied land for its illegal settlement activities.

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 around 300,000 Palestinians.

Thus, house and structures 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.
