Details of 8 settlement plans approved by the “Civil Administration” in the occupation army

The “weekly settlement report” issued by the Palestine Liberation Organization indicated that the occupation authorities recently approved 8 settlement plans, after they were officially announced last week, and published in the Israeli Official Gazette.

The report issued by the "National Office for Defending Land and Resisting Settlement" on Saturday said that Israel is in a race against time to establish and expand settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem; The Civil Administration’s Settlement Subcommittee announced the approval of 8 new settlement plans for the establishment of 1,058 settlement units, public buildings, and institutions.

In accordance with the decisions of the military government and the details of announcing the structural plans, the settlement units were approved according to the detailed plan No. 237/3 for the colony of “Eli” built on the lands of the villages of Al-Sawiya and Qaryut in the site known as “Jabal Al-Rahwat” from the lands of Al-Sawiya and Jabal Al-Khawaniq from the lands of Qaryut on an area of ​​403 dunams to build 628 settlement units. The project was announced on 7/5/2021.

The settlement sub-committee also announced the approval of the detailed plan No. 2/4/2/114 for the “Har Brakhah” settlement, which was established on the lands of Burin village in Nablus, on an area of ​​88.6 dunams, to establish 286 settlement units. Detailed plan No. 169/9 for the “Badawel” colony built on the lands of the town of Kafr ad-Dik in the geographical location known as “Khirbet al-Hamqa, al-Dair” on an area of ​​4.7 dunums for the establishment of 20 settlement units, as well as on detailed plan No. 1/8/225 for the colony.

The report added that, in a step that has been suspended for years due to widespread international opposition, an Israeli committee is discussing approving the establishment of a major settlement on the land of Al-Quds International Airport, in Qalandia, north of the occupied city of Jerusalem, next week. Noting that “the plan was put back on the agenda of the regional committee of the Ministry of Interior, on the sixth of December, when it will be decided to file the plan for objections.”

The plan calls for the establishment of 9,000 settlement units on the ruins of the airport, which was closed by the occupation in 2000. The local committee of the occupation municipality approved the settlement plan last month.

And circles in the Israeli ruling coalition are promoting proposals calling for the use of Qalandia Airport for the mutual benefit between the Palestinian and Israeli sides, proposals made by Freij Issawi, a minister in the Israeli government from the Meretz party.

The “National Office for Defending Land and Resisting Settlement” considered this promotion as an attempt to mislead by talking about common benefits, because the occupying state is not in the process of reversing its plan to establish a settlement on the land of Qalandia Airport, especially since the District Committee in the Israeli Ministry of Interior has put on its agenda a discussion of establishing a settlement on the land of Qalandia Airport. A settlement in the place and the filing of the plan for that for objections, which goes beyond what Minister Frej Issawi promotes from the proposals that the Palestinians reject, as they reject the establishment of a settlement on the land of Qalandia, and they demand Israel to stop every action that violates international law, and to act as an occupying power in accordance with its obligations stipulated in the covenants and treaties. The international airport shall maintain the airport as it was as a Palestinian airport, and shall stop the work of the Israeli bulldozers, which are working in preparing the conditions for implementation, when local and international conditions permit.

In occupied Jerusalem, settlement operations and Judaization projects continue without stopping. Moshe Leon Municipality intends to start a settlement project that includes building 2,000 settlement units on the lands of Mount Scopus, as an extension of the French Hill settlement, which perches in the western region of Al-Isawiya, connected with Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood. The new neighborhood will be built as part of an agreement signed between the so-called Israel Land Administration and the Hebrew University, whereby construction will be allowed on land that was owned by the university in (French Hill). The construction of these settlement units will be near the axis of the Judaization light rail, which passes in several areas of central and western Jerusalem, including Shuafat, Malha, and the Baqa'a neighborhood.

The mayor of the occupation, Moshe Leon, also inaugurated the Introduction Park in the French Hill on the lands of Issawiya, after it was recently expanded and modernized with a financial investment of 5.5 million shekels. Active recreational facilities and arrangement of garden entrances, in addition to allocating seating areas and increasing lighting in the garden. It is noteworthy that the French Hill settlement is built on the lands of Al-Isawiya, Lifta and Shuafat from the west, and is expanding at the expense of the lands of these Palestinian villages where there is no garden or breathing space for children and suffers from overcrowding due to the municipality’s refusal to approve organizational plans for the expansion of construction.

On the other hand, in a step that raises shame, according to the Israeli “Breaking the Silence” organization, the Israeli President, Isaac Herzog, last week stormed the Ibrahimi Mosque in the city of Hebron, under heavy guard by the occupation forces, to participate in a celebration ceremony for the so-called “Feast of Lights” (Hanukkah). The Jew, accompanied by a group of settler leaders. In a speech inside the sanctuary, Herzog claimed that the historical connection of the Jewish people to Hebron, and specifically to the Cave of the Patriarchs (the biblical name of the Abrahamic Sanctuary), with the heritage of mothers and fathers, is beyond doubt. Acknowledgment of this connection must rise above all disputes. Commenting on the visit, the Peace Now movement said that settlement in Hebron is the ugliest aspect of Israeli control over the West Bank, and it is unimaginable for Herzog, who is supposed to be a unified figure, to choose from all places. To light a candle in a place that has become a stronghold of oppression and violence. And.

At the same time, the Israeli Minister of Interior, Ayelet Shaked, allocated 500,000 shekels for what she described as the development of municipal services provided, of course, to settlers in Hebron, for the first time since the occupation of the city and the establishment of the first outpost in the Old City. From the competent authorities to provide these services to the settlers in Hebron. The commander of the occupation army in the West Bank in 2017, during Shaked’s tenure as Minister of Justice, signed the decision to establish a municipal services directorate for settlers in Hebron. With Shaked's decision, the Directorate of Services is approved as a municipality, providing full services in an official manner and obtaining budgets from the Ministry of the Interior, similar to the various local authorities inside Israel.

On the level of the so-called hate crimes against a pervasive right-wing nationalist background, well-known international media outlets reported on the escalation of settlers' attacks on Palestinian citizens. The Washington newspaper published a report under the title “The escalation of hate crimes campaigns by Israeli settlers against Palestinians in the West Bank, in which it indicated that settlers have significantly increased their attacks during the past months, as violent incidents increased by about 150% in the past two years, according to data that It was presented by the occupation army at the meeting of the Ministry of the Army this month, and videos collected by Israeli human rights organizations showed that soldiers do not do much to interfere during these events, and in some cases even assist in the attacks. A report by the British newspaper “The Independent” also dealt with the escalation of attacks by the Israeli settlers against the Palestinians during the olive harvest season, using saws, shears and shovels, as farmers face different threats every year from the settlers, including intimidation, physical attacks, destruction, uprooting and sabotaging their olive trees the theft of crops and harvesting tools. And that, according to the data of the International Committee of the Red Cross, more than 9,300 trees were destroyed in the West Bank, between August 2020 and August of this year.
