Israeli Army Demolishes A Home, Abducts A Palestinian, Near Tubas

On Sunday morning, several Israeli military vehicles, including bulldozers, invaded the village of al-Aqaba, east of Tubas in northeastern West Bank, demolished a Palestinian under-construction home, and abducted one Palestinian.

The Governor of Tubas and the Northern Valleys reported that the soldiers demolished an under-construction home, belonging to Ibrahim Taleb, on his land.

The governor added that the soldiers abducted Ibrahim’s brother and confiscated his car before taking them to an unknown destination.

Younis al-‘Aasi, the governor of Tubas and the Northern Plains, denounced the demolition and the ongoing displacement of the Palestinians from the Northern Plains for the benefit of Israel’s illegal colonies.

He added that the Palestinians in the area are subject to constant invasions and abductions, in addition to the demolition of homes and structures.

Younis also called on various international legal and human rights groups in the region and worldwide to intervene and end the Israeli violations against the Palestinian people and end this ongoing illegal Israeli occupation.

Israeli forces arrest 13 Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem

Israeli Border Police officers arrest a Palestinian man in Jerusalem 

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces arrested on Sunday morning and last night 13 Palestinians from several areas across the Occupied Jerusalem.

Local sources said 13 Palestinians were arrested today and last night by the Israeli occupation forces in a large-scale military campaign in the occupied city of Jerusalem and its outskirts.

In Hizma town, northeast of the occupied city, three Palestinians were arrested by the Israeli forces who also raided their houses and searched them.

In the Al-Issawiya neighborhood, 7 Palestinians were arrested, including two brothers, after raiding their houses, searching them and turning them upside-down.

In the Al-Tur neighborhood, another 6 were arrested after raiding their houses.

Israeli occupation forces frequently raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.

In the year of 2021, Israel’ arrested nearly 8000 Palestinians, including 1300 minors, all under the age of 18, and 184 women.

There are now 4600 Palestinians held in Israeli occupation jails, including 34 women, 160 minors, and 500 administrative detainees held without charge or trial.

Israeli forces demolish Palestinian under-construction house in Tubas

Tubas (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces on Sunday morning demolished a new Palestinian-owned house in the village of Al-Aqaba, to the east of Tubas town in the north of the occupied West Bank.

Local sources said that earlier today, Israeli occupation soldiers raided the village of Al-Aqaba and demolished a house under construction, owned by Palestinian resident Ibrahim Taleb, under the pretext of building without a permit.

The soldiers also arrested the brother of the owner of the house and confiscated his vehicle during the same raid of the village.

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.

For 30th day, Palestinian administrative detainees continue to boycott Israeli Military Courts

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Nearly 500 Palestinian administrative detainees in Israeli prisons have been boycotting Israeli Military Courts for the 30th day in a row, in protest of their indefinite detention without charges or trial.

The Palestinian prisoner advocacy groups said that in protest against their administrative detention without charges or trial by the Israeli occupation authorities, nearly 500 Palestinian administrative detainees have been boycotting the Israeli Military Courts since January 1, 2022.

Among the 500 administrative detainees are 3 minors and a female. One of the minors is 18-year-old Amal Nakhleh who tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday while suffering from a chronic autoimmune disease that affects his breathing and swallowing.

The boycott includes the initial hearings to uphold the administrative detention order, as well as appeal hearings and later sessions at the Supreme Court.

Under the banner, “Our decision is freedom … no to administrative detention,” administrative detainees said in a statement their move comes as a continuation of longstanding Palestinian efforts “to put an end to the unjust administrative detention practiced against our people by the occupation forces”.

They also noted that Israel’s use of the policy has expanded in recent years to include women, children and elderly people.

“Israeli military courts are an important aspect for the occupation in its system of oppression,” the detainees said, describing the courts as a “barbaric, racist tool that has consumed hundreds of years from the lives of our people under the banner of administrative detention, through nominal and fictitious courts – the results of which are predetermined by the military commander of the region”.

Since March 2002, the number of Palestinians in administrative detention has never fallen below 100.

According to the Palestinian prisoner advocacy groups, there are now 4,600 Palestinians held in Israeli occupation jails, including 34 women, 160 minors, and 500 administrative detainees held without charge or trial.

The groups said in a recently-issued report that during the year of 2021, ‘Israel’ issued 1,595 administrative detention orders against the Palestinians while 1,114 administrative detention orders were issued in 2020.

The director of the Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, attorney Sahar Francis, told Haaretz that “the authorities of the occupation are not honoring the limitations that international law has set on imposing administrative detentions and they are being done arbitrarily, something that is a war crime according to the occupation laws.”

According to Francis, the decision to boycott the legal system was made after many efforts were made to battle the administrative detention policy, including hunger strikes led by a few prisoners in recent months.

US Film Documents Israel’s 2021 Atrocities Against Palestine Kids

A US-based non-profit group has released a short film documenting the Israeli regime’s killing of 77 Palestinian children in 2021 as part its campaign to halt the flow of massive American funds to support the occupying entity

DAYS OF PALESTINE – A US-based non-profit group has released a short film documenting the Israeli regime’s killing of 77 Palestinian children in 2021 as part its campaign to halt the flow of massive American funds to support the occupying entity.

The two-minute film, produced by ‘If Americans Knew’ and posted on social media and the group’s website, conveys the circumstance around which so many innocent Palestinian children have been killed by the Israeli occupation.

The film further details how much money the US government sends to the Israeli regime and the Palestinians as financial, military and humanitarian aid.

“During Fiscal Year 2020, the US is providing Israel with at least $10.5 million per day in military aid and $0 in military aid to the Palestinians,” the organization declared.

The group has also called on US lawmakers to show the film during their meetings in different Congressional committees to educate people about the continuous Israeli atrocities and crimes against the Palestinian population.

The organization further asserted that the Israeli occupation authorities place between 500 and 700 Palestinian children before military courts annually, adding that since 2000, the Israeli occupation forces have killed nearly 2,200 Palestinian children.

According to the California-based organization, the Israeli regime kept 41 Palestinian children under administrative detention between October 2015 and October 2021, including four that are still enduring illegal detention until today.

This is while Defense for Children International has recently published a detailed report about the Israeli atrocities against Palestinian children in 2021.

It also confirmed that the Israeli occupation had killed 77 Palestinian children in 2021, with one more child being killed after the report was released.

The Palestinian Prisoners Club has also stated that since 2000, the Israeli occupation has detained more than 19,000 Palestinian children.
