Israeli multimillion-dollar plan to double settlements in occupied Syrian Golan Heights

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has said the occupation state plans to double the number of illegal settlers in the occupied Golan Heights with a multimillion-dollar plan meant to further consolidate Israel’s hold on the occupied Syrian territory.

Bennett said the new investment in the occupied region was prompted by the Trump administration’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the swath of land and by the Biden administration’s indication that it will not soon challenge that decision.

“This is our moment. This is the moment of the Golan Heights,” Bennett said at a special Cabinet meeting in the Golan Heights. “After long and static years in terms of the scope of settlement, our goal today is to double settlement in the Golan Heights.”

‘Israel’ captured the Golan Heights from Syria in 1967 and annexed it in 1981. A vast majority of the international community considers the move illegal under international law.

Nearly 25,000 foreign colonial settlers live in the Golan Heights, along with some 23,000 native Druze, who remained on the land after it was occupied by ‘Israel’.

Under Trump’s administration, the US was the first country to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the territory.

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- The Detainees Information Bureau revealed that detainees in section 12 of Nafha prison were subjected to a brutal attack by the Israeli Prison Service’s repression units last week.

The head of the bureau, Nahed Fakhouri, said: “the features of the crime against the detainees started to be revealed amid tension, which has been prevailing across Israeli prisons until now.”

NGO: Palestinian prisoner with cancer denied access to healthcare

NGO: Palestinian prisoner with cancer denied access to healthcare

Palestinian prisoner Abdul-Basit Muatan, a patient of cancer who is currently detained in the Israeli prison of Ofer, is denied access to badly needed healthcare, said the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) in a statement today.

PPS said the Israeli Prison Service’s reluctance to allow Muatan access to healthcare has exacerbated his medical condition, calling for urgent action to ensure his access to the necessary healthcare before it is too late.

Muatan, who has been detained since 25 October 2021, had undergone a number of surgeries prior to his arrest, including a surgical removal of part of the colon, but according to PPC, but it was later found that not all cancer cells were removed, which means a spread of cancer into the rest of his body is highly probable.

PPS also called for Muatan to be freed from Israeli detention as soon as possible, since he is in prison without charge or trial under Israel’s so-called administrative detention policy

The prisoners rights group held the Israeli government and the Israel Prison Service fully responsible for the lives of the sick prisoners, especially Muatan, due to depriving them their right to healthcare.
