Army Injures And Abducts Many Palestinians In Jerusalem

Israeli soldiers injured, on Friday evening, many Palestinians and abducted many others, in several parts of occupied Jerusalem.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan (Silwanic) said dozens of soldiers, police officers, and mounted units were deployed in the Old City, especially around the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in addition to many other areas such as Bab al-Amoud, al-Misrara, Nablus Str. Sultan Suleiman Str, and Bab as-Sahera.

It added that the army, and the police, assaulted dozens of Palestinians who were walking and sitting in the area during the evening hours, to force them to leave, and fired gas bombs, concussion grenades in addition to rubber-coated steel bullets.

Medics of the Palestinian Red Crescent society (PRCS) provided treatment to six Palestinians who were shot in the Old City and described the injury of four of them as moderate. All were moved to a local hospital.

In addition, many Palestinians suffered cuts and bruises due to Israeli concussion grenades, and dozens suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, while many others sustained fractures after being assaulted by the soldiers and the police.

The soldiers also abducted many young Palestinian men, and a few children, before taking them to nearby police stations and detention centers.

Late on Thursday at night and on Friday at dawn, the soldiers abducted eight young Palestinian men, and assaulted dozens of worshipers, after the army and the police stormed the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, and its al-Qibli Mosque, to remove the worshipers.

On Thursday, and for the third day in a row, the Israeli soldiers and police officers continued to attack Muslim worshipers while entering or leaving the Al-Aqsa Mosque and assaulted many following evening prayers.

On Wednesday night, the soldiers abducted a young Palestinian man in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in addition to another man who was taken prisoner on Wednesday evening, in addition to attacking many Palestinians while leaving the holy site.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli army, and the police, have increased their violations against the Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem, especially in and around Al-Aqsa Mosque since the beginning of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.

These violations include preventing the calls for prayers in the holy site’s four minarets, in addition to preventing the entry of meals to the worshippers in the evening hours after a long day of fasting without food or water.

Warplanes Bomb Several Sites in the Besieged Gaza Strip

Israeli warplanes attacked, on Saturday at dawn, several sites in the besieged Gaza Strip after bombarding the coastal region less than one day ago, during the holy month of Ramadan.

According to Shehab News correspondent, Israeli aircraft conducted a new round of bombings, targeting a site belonging to the Al-Qassam Brigades, in the southern Gaza Strip, northwest of Rafah.

He added that the occupation army fired missiles into agricultural lands in the Al-Muharrat area, also northwest of Rafah. There were no reports of casualties.

Military aircraft fired into farmlands in the central Gaza Strip, east of Al-Bureij, in addition to the Netzarim area, south of Gaza City.

The occupation army spokesman claimed that the aerial assault was in response to an alleged rocket which was reportedly fired from the Gaza Strip earlier Friday night.

The army claimed that it struck an alleged “Hamas training facility”, a “concrete production plant for tunnels”, and a “weapons storage site”.

The army’s accusations have yet to be confirmed.

Israeli warplanes and drones struck various sites on Thursday night, causing damage but no casualties.

OCHA: West Bank Demolitions and Displacement Report | March 2021

The United Nation Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) West Bank Demolitions and Displacement Report for March 2021

Overview

In March, the Israeli authorities demolished, forced people to demolish, or seized 58 Palestinian-owned structures across the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. This resulted in the displacement of 81 people, including 42 children, and otherwise affected the livelihoods, or access to services, of nearly 200 others. All the structures were located in Area C or East Jerusalem and were targeted due to a lack of building permits, which are nearly impossible for Palestinians to obtain.

Sixteen of the structures, all located in Area C communities, had been provided as humanitarian aid for a total value of more than 20,000 euros. Another 29 donor-funded structures, at a value of nearly 86,000 euros, were served demolition orders in Hammamat al Maleh – Al Meiteh, a Bedouin and herding community in the northern Jordan Valley, which is now facing the risk of mass-demolition.

In the first quarter of 2021, the Israeli authorities demolished, forced people to demolish, or seized at least 292 Palestinian-owned structures across the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, displacing 450 people, including 246 children. This constitutes a 121 % increase in the targeting of structures and a 126 % increase in people displaced, compared with the same period in 2020 (132 and 201 respectively). Also, the monthly average of structures targeted in 2021 so far (97) constitutes a 37 % increase compared with the monthly average in all of 2020 (71).

Forty-two of the structures targeted in March were located in Area C, 24 (or 57 %) in areas designated by the Israeli authorities as closed military zones for training or ‘firing zones’. More than half of the targeted structures (23) were located in Bedouin and herding communities, including ten structures provided as
humanitarian aid. These communities are some of the most vulnerable in the West Bank, with limited access to education and health services, and to water, sanitation, and electricity infrastructure. The practice of seizing unlicensed structures in Area C has steadily increased in recent years, both in absolute terms and as a proportion of structures targeted overall.

In March, 28 structures (67 % of all structures targeted) in Area C were seized without prior warning. So far in 2021, 64 % of targeted structures have been seized, more than double compared with 2020 (30 %). Seizure procedures do not oblige the authorities to provide prior notice, thus preventing affected people from formally objecting in advance. Seizure procedures have been characterized by the ICA Head of the Supervision Unit as “a strategic tool”.

Sixteen structures were demolished in East Jerusalem: nine were demolished by the Jerusalem Municipality and seven by the owners themselves, following the issuance of a demolition order. In one of the incidents, on 24 March, the Jerusalem Municipality, along with Israeli forces, demolished a home in Jabal Al Mukabbir, displacing two households comprising seven people, including three children, one of whom was a five-day-old infant. The households had been paying fines as a penalty for lacking an Israeli-issued building permit since June 2019, approximately NIS900 a month (approximately 230 euros).

Since the beginning of 2021, nearly 50 per cent of all demolitions in East Jerusalem have been carried out by the owners themselves, following the issuance of a demolition order by the Jerusalem Municipality.

In late February, the Jerusalem Municipality requested the Local Affairs Court to reactivate demolition orders against some 70 Palestinian homes in the Al Bustan area, in the Silwan neighbourhood of East Jerusalem, which would lead to the displacement of up to 1,500 Palestinians. The Municipality has longstanding plans to build a touristic and archeological park on the site, but following public pressure, the demolition orders had been frozen since 2010 to allow for a solution negotiated between the Municipality and the residents.

The latter submitted alternative plans to allow them to stay in the area, all of which were rejected by the District Planning Committee, the last one in December 2020. In mid-March, the residents submitted a response to the Municipality’s request to the court, asking to freeze the demolition orders for 12 more months, to proceed with further negotiations.

PCHR: Weekly Report on Israeli Human Rights Violations in the Occupied Palestinian Territory

Summary for April 08 – 14, 2021 Israeli Human Rights Violations in the Occupied Palestinian Territory

IOF arrested the representative of “Jerusalem is Our Destiny” list running for Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) elections while Ramadan Iftar meals were banned entry into al-Aqsa Mosque, which was raided and the wires of the loudspeakers used for adhan were cut. Moreover, 13 dunams were confiscated this week and construction of hundreds of housing units were approved in 2 settlements in occupied East Jerusalem. Even more, IOF continued its demolition operations and delivery of cease-construction and demolition notices in the West Bank. Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) documented 200 violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law (IHL) by IOF and settlers in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt).

IOF shooting and violation of right to bodily integrity:

Five Palestinians, including a child and a photojournalist, were injured due to IOF excessive use of force against civilians in the West Bank: the child was injured in his eye in clashes with IOF in Hebron; as a result, he lost his eye while the four civilians, including the photojournalist, were all injured in suppression of a protest in al-Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem. Also, dozens suffocated due to tear gas inhalation, and others were wounded in IOF assaults during house raids across the West Bank.

In the Gaza Strip, 3 IOF shootings were reported on agricultural lands in eastern Gaza Strip.

Report: “Israeli Soldiers Abduct 1400 Palestinians Since Beginning Of This Year”

Several human rights and prisoner support organizations issued a joint report ahead of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Day (April 17), and revealed that Israeli soldiers abducted 1400 Palestinians since the beginning of this year, bringing the number of Palestinian political prisoners to at least 4500, including 41 women and 140 children, facing constant violations, and deprived of basic rights.

The report was compiled and published by the Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society, Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan, and the Center for Defense of Liberties and Civil Rights.

The report revealed that Israeli has escalated its violations against the Palestinian detainees and turned the current coronavirus crises into another venue for abuse.

368 detainees, including children and elderly, have contracted the coronavirus in Israeli prisons.

The compiled data revealed that Israel is holding captive at least 4500 Palestinians in twenty-three prisons, detention camps, and interrogation facilities, among them 41 women, mainly in the Damoun prison and 140 children in Ofer, Majeddo, and Damoun.

It also revealed that twenty-five detainees have been held captive since before the first Oslo Agreement of the year 1993, including Karim Younis and Maher Younis, who have been imprisoned since the year 1983, in addition to Na’el Barghouthi, who spent 41 years behind bars, including when he was held captive for 34 consecutive years before being released and rearrested later.

Furthermore, there are sixty-two Palestinian detainees who have been in prison for at least 20 years, in addition to 543 detainees who are serving at least one life term, including Abdullah Barghouthi, who is serving sixty-seven life terms.

226 detainees died in Israeli prisons since the year 1967, in addition to hundreds who died from serious illnesses and diseases they contracted in prison but did not receive the needed specialized treatment.

There are also 75 detainees who were killed by the soldiers in prison, 73 died while being tortured during interrogation, and 71 due to medical neglect, including four who died last year, identified as Noureddin Barghouthi, Sa’adi Gharabily, Daoud Khatib, and Kamal Abu Wa’ar.

Also, Israel is still holding the corpses of seven detainees who died in its prisons: Anis Doula, who died in the year 1980, Aziz Oweisat, 2018, Fares Baroud, Bassam Taqatqa and Bassam Sayeh, 2019, in addition to Sa’adi Gharabily and Kamal Abu Wa’er, 2020.

There are also at least 550 detainees who suffer from various illnesses and diseases, including 10 cancer patients, who need serious and specialized medical attention, including the oldest detainee, Fuad Shobaki, 82.

Furthermore, at least 440 Palestinians are imprisoned under the arbitrary Administrative Detention orders, without charges or trial.

Since the beginning of this year, the soldiers abducted 1400 Palestinians, including 230 children, and 39 women, while the Israeli authorities issued more than 280 Administrative detention orders.

Most of the abductions this year took place in Jerusalem, as the soldiers have taken prison more than 500 Palestinians, including 144 children and 28 women.

According to the report, Israel has taken prisoner more than 16.000 women since it occupied the West Bank, including Jerusalem, in the year 1967, one of them is the first female detainee, Fatima Barnawi, who was taken prisoner in 1967 and was released in 1977.

Over the decades since Israel occupied the rest of Palestine in the year 1967, its policies against the detainees became yet another method used for inflicting more pain and abuse, especially against ailing detainees who require specialized medical treatment but are denied that basic right, leading to the death of 71 detainees.

There are currently at least 550 detainees who require specialized medical treatment, including more than ten cancer patients.

The report called on regional and international human rights groups and legal organizations to intervene and put an end to the escalating Israeli violations, in addition to calling on the International Criminal Court to initiate an investigation into Israel war crimes, especially after the court ruled in favor of conducting this investigation into the Israeli violations, especially torture.

Despite Israel’s constant violations and its attempts to isolate the detainees and keep their cause away from the medical and public attention, the detainees held repeated hunger strikes and managed to ensure their voices and struggles are heard.
