Israeli Soldiers Destroy Fences, Water Network, Near Jericho

On Monday, Israeli soldiers invaded Palestinian lands near the Al-Awsaj Agricultural Cooperative Village and Natural Reservation, north of Jericho in the northeastern part of the occupied West Bank, before destroying a water network and fences.

Jihan Sarsawi, the media coordinator of Al-Awsaj, said several army jeeps invaded lands near the village, especially Basin #44, before bulldozing the lands and destroying a fence and a water network of farmland owned by Ahmad Hashash from Nablus, in the northern West Bank.

Sarsawi added that the soldiers confiscated the water pipelines and the fence before withdrawing.

The agricultural village of Al-Awsaj sits on one hundred dunams of Palestinian lands and is considered a model for the first agricultural villages in Palestine.

In related news, the soldiers invaded the Al-Awja village north of Jericho before dismantling and confiscating seven tents out of fourteen.

The soldiers also confiscated agricultural tools and supplies from the tents after alleging that the tents “are in part in Area C of the West Bank.”

The tents were installed nearly a month ago and were used by Palestinian farmers and agricultural engineers.

WAFA: “Israeli police raid home of director of Al-Aqsa Mosque and detain him”

JERUSALEM, Monday, September 19, 2022 (WAFA) – The Israeli police today broke into the home of the director of Al-Aqsa Mosque Sheikh Omar Kiswani in al-Tur neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem and detained him, reported WAFA correspondent.

She said, according to local sources, that the police seized Kiswani’s laptop and other documents from his home after thoroughly searching and ransacking it.

Kiswani was held for several hours at a police station and then released.

The detention of Kiswani is believed related to Israeli efforts to threaten officials and activists who call for a vigil at the Muslim holy site as Jewish fanatics intend to break into it during the upcoming Jewish holidays and perform rituals in violation of the decades-long status quo that assert Al-Aqsa Mosque as a Muslim-only holy place where worship is allowed only for Muslims.

Dozens of Palestinians from East Jerusalem have been detained or ordered to stay away from Al-Aqsa Mosque for days and weeks to come.

Israeli Soldiers Demolish Three Residential Sheds In Bedouin Village In Jericho

On Monday dawn, several Israeli army vehicles and bulldozers invaded the Rashayda Bedouin village, southeast of Jericho, in the northeastern part of the occupied West Bank, and demolished three residential sheds.

Hasan Mleihat, the supervisor of the Al-Baidar Organization for Defending the Rights of the Bedouins, said the soldiers demolished residential sheds owned by Mohammad Ali Rashayda, Emad Ali Rashayda, and Amin Mohammad Mleihat.

Mleihat added that the demolition is part of Israel’s ethnic cleansing policies against the Bedouins in occupied Palestine, by demolishing their dwelling and barns to force them to leave to replace them with illegal colonizers, in direct violation of International Law and all related agreements.

He called on various legal and human rights groups in the region and worldwide to act on defending the basic rights of the Palestinians by all possible means.

It is worth mentioning that the forcible systematic transfer of a civilian population is a crime against humanity and is punishable by the International Criminal Court, in addition to the fact that the United Nations have also included the forcible transfer of children in its list of acts of genocide.
