Pictures| ‘Israel’ forces Jerusalemite to self-demolish his three commercial stores

Israeli occupation authorities forced a Palestinian man to self-demolish his three commercial stores in Jabal al-Mukabber neighborhood, south of the occupied city of Jerusalem

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Israeli occupation authorities on Tuesday night forced a Palestinian youth to self-demolish his three commercial stores in Jabal al-Mukabber neighborhood, south of the occupied city of Jerusalem, under the pretext of building without a permit.

Last night, the Jerusalemite Malek Khalayla self-demolished his three commercial stores in the Jabal al-Mukabber, at the order of the Israeli occupation municipality, under the pretext of building without a permit.

Khalayla was seen last night emptying the stores of its contents before self-demolishing them.

The occupation municipality ordered him to self-demolish the stores or he had to pay an exorbitant fine of the demolition costs to the municipality if it carries out the demolition.

In the early morning hours of Wednesday, the occupation forces demolished another family’s house, the Salhiya family, after raiding their house in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem, violently arresting and assaulting family members.

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 home demolitions.

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.

The Israeli court had previously rejected many appeals filed by the residents of Jerusalem to stop demolitions and forced displacement.

During the year of 2021, according to the Jerusalem Affairs Ministry, Israeli forces demolished over 173 Palestinian-owned structures in Jerusalem and issued over 200 demolition orders against houses.

500 Palestinian administrative detainees continue to boycott Israeli Military Courts for 19th day

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Nearly 500 Palestinian administrative detainees in Israeli prisons have been boycotting Israeli Military Courts for the 19th 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, 500 Palestinian administrative detainees have been boycotting the Israeli Military Courts since January 1, 2022. Among the 500 administrative detainees are 3 minors and one female.

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.

In overnight raid, Israeli forces demolish 18-member Palestinian family house in Jerusalem

Debris from the Salhiya family house in Sheikh Jarrah after it was demolished by Israeli occupation forces

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces demolished house of the Palestinian family of Salhiya after raiding their house in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem in the early morning hours of Wednesday, violently arresting and assaulting family members.

Local sources and family members said that around 3am local time, a large number of Israeli police units, including counter-terrorism and riot police forces accompanied with bulldozers, raided the Salhiya house.

Yasmin Salhiya, a resident of the house and daughter of the owner Mahmoud Salhiya, said that the large Israeli force had cut off electricity from the house as they raided it, and started firing tear gas to block everyone’s vision.

The forces then attacked the family and arrested five of its members, including Mahmoud. Among the assaulted were a nine-year-old daughter of Mahmoud and her aunt.

Also, over 22 supporters who were camping inside the property in solidarity with the family were also assaulted and arrested by the forces.

The forces separated everyone that was there and started beating the youths before arresting them in the jeeps and taking them away.

The owner of the house was asleep when they arrested him and they didn’t let him put a jacket or shoes on, despite the heavy rains and cold temperatures.

The forces then started emptying the house and then started firing rubber-coated metal bullets at journalists and supporters who were outside the house.

They also prevented the ambulances from accessing the site and reaching the wounded family members.

The Israeli bulldozers then started demolishing the house, finishing the demolition three hours later and leaving the house in ruins while the family’s possessions were seen scattered on the ground.

On Monday morning, the Israeli forces also attempted to forcibly displaced the Salhiya family from its house. They raided the area and demolished five businesses Mahmoud owned.

However, Mahmoud refused to obey the order of the Israeli occupation municipality and threatened to set himself and the house on fire, in opposition to the forced displacement.

Hours later, the Israeli forces left the area after demolishing five businesses owned by Mahmoud.

The Salhiya family was displaced from its house in the west Jerusalem neighborhood of Ein Karem in 1948 during the ethnic cleansing of the village.

They bought a new house in the 1950s in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, over a decade before ‘Israel’ occupied and annexed the area.

Eighteen people lived on the property in two adjacent houses, including Mahmoud, his wife and children, his mother and his sister’s family. The whole family is made up of 9 children.

The family was offered by the occupation municipality an eight-month extension to convince them to sign a paper stating that they would become a tenant of the house, but they refused.

The family also said that the battle to keep its house had cost them around NIS 600,000 (about $ 190,000) in fines, the cost of filing cases and appointing lawyers.

More than 500 Palestinians living in 28 houses in the neighborhood are also threatened with forced displacement by settler organizations supported by the Israeli occupation government.

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Human Rights Watch denounced on Wednesday Israel’s demolition of Palestinian family house and forcibly displacing its 18 members, saying these are “war crimes” and “Perpetrators should be prosecuted and sanctioned.”

The New York-based rights group director in Palestine, Omar Shakir, said that Israel’s demolition of the house of the Palestinian family of Salhiya after raiding their house in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem on Wednesday and forcibly displacing its members “are war crimes. This is what apartheid and persecution looks like.”

“Perpetrators should be prosecuted and sanctioned. End Complicity. Save Sheikh Jarrah,” the HRW director said in a statement he tweeted on Wednesday.

“The Salhiyehs were expelled from their home in Ein Kerem during the Nakba in 1948 and are barred under Israeli law from reclaiming it.”

“These cruel acts turn the Salhiyehs into two-time refugees. This is what apartheid and persecution looks like. Perpetrators of these crimes against humanity should be prosecuted and sanctioned. Complicity in them should end.”

Under the cover of darkness, Israeli forces forcibly expelled a Palestinian family & demolished their home. @hrw responds: These are war crimes. This is what apartheid & persecution looks like. Perpetrators should be prosecuted & sanctioned. End Complicity. #SaveSheikhJarrah.

DAYS OF PALESTINE – Occupied Lands Of 1948 – The Israeli occupation forces launched a large-scale arrest campaign against dozens of Palestinians in the Neqab on Tuesday morning.

Asra Media Office affirmed that 41 Palestinians were rounded up during the campaign, including minors.

130 of the Neqab residents, including women and children, were detained during the events that took place in recent days in the Neqab desert.

On Sunday, Israeli occupation extended the arbitrary arrest of 50 detainees and released the rest into house arrest, while appeals filed by Israeli occupation police and lawyers representing the citizens are being studied by courts.

In recent days, hundreds of local Arabs in Neqab staged protests against the exposure of their lands to appropriation by the “Jewish National Fund,” an Israeli organization that collects money from Jews around the world to fund the appropriation of Palestinian property.

The protests were met with brutal force by the Israeli occupation police, causing several injuries, while many were arrested and jailed.

Last Thursday, in particular, hundreds of local Arabs in Neqab staged protests against their land confiscation by this Jewish National Fund.

However, Israeli occupation police, some disguised in Arab clothes, violently suppressed the protests, and arrested many demonstrators.

The Israeli occupation police also used stun grenades, rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse the protesters, injuring many local citizens.
