Report: A war crime in Sur Baher carried out by the Israeli occupation authorities with cover from its judicial apparatus

The Israeli occupation authorities have imposed a policy of transfer, silent ethnic cleansing and the demolition of Palestinian homes, especially in Jerusalem and its environs. The right-wing government has supported it through the court to complete its settlement project towards what Netanyahu dreams of, ignoring all the warnings issued by the United Nations. The United Nations and international gatherings covering the five continents of the world and human rights organizations and organizations on a large scale, where a new crime was committed against the Palestinian people to demolish about 100 apartments and the displacement of dozens of families from their homes and lands on the pretext of proximity to the Wall and annexation The International Court of Justice affirmed in its legal opinion issued on July 9, 2004, that it contravenes international law and called on the occupation to cease its work, remove what has been built and redress the damage done to private citizens and official and public institutions and departments, including municipal and village councils. .

It is worth mentioning that this area, which was attacked by the Israeli occupation authorities, falls under the jurisdiction of the Palestinian National Authority (Area A). The buildings have all the necessary permits, but the occupation has committed its crime and carried out demolitions, bypassing the Palestinian Authority responsible for the area, In violation of all the agreements signed between the Palestinian and Israeli sides, as well as the international treaties and laws that impose on Israel as the occupying Power its obligations to protect civilians under occupation. The Israeli occupation authorities in the Wadi al-Homs neighborhood south of Jerusalem with 300 dunums will be kept by the occupation authorities under its control. The Israeli government is seeking this demolition to consolidate the demographic control of the city of Jerusalem by affirming the large Jewish majority in the city, not as it claims for security reasons or for its proximity to the places of contention with the wall of annexation and expansion.

The destruction of Palestinian homes has been met with overwhelming condemnation, with UN humanitarian officials (Humanitarian Coordinator Jimmy McGoldrick, UNRWA Director of West Bank Operations Gwyn Lewis and Head of Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights James Henin) The occupying Power, destroyed the homes of citizens in Wad al-Homs, in the town of Sur Baher, to the south-east of occupied Jerusalem, in violation of international humanitarian law, and that the policy pursued by Israel in the destruction of Palestinian property was not in conformity with the obligations under international law In particular the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, where private property in the territory under occupation may only be destroyed if war operations inevitably require such destruction, which does not apply to this situation. Moreover, such destruction leads to forced evictions and contributes to The risk of forced displacement is faced by many

As expected, in the context of the US support of the Israeli occupation government and settlers, the United States prevented an attempt by Kuwait, Indonesia and South Africa to issue a statement from the UN Security Council condemning the demolition of Palestinian homes in Wad al-Homs in the town of Sur Baher in occupied Jerusalem.

At the same time, the National Office for the Defense of the Earth praised the positions of the Humanitarian Coordinator for the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Jimmy McGoldrick, the Director of the West Bank Operations at UNRWA, Guin Lewis, the Head of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in the occupied Palestinian territory, James Henan, Human Rights Committee in the Palestinian Territories Michael Link and EU Delegation in Jerusalem and Ramallah, which condemned the policy of demolishing Palestinian homes and facilities and called on Israel to respect its obligations as the occupying power. International to turn these words into action with the support of the Palestinian demand in the International Criminal Court to invite Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda to the referral of the demolition of Palestinian homes crimes and crimes of transfer and ethnic cleansing practiced by the State of Israel to the Judicial Division of the court to open an immediate investigation into these crimes and bring planners and legislators

In the same context, Israeli human rights organizations considered that the decision of the Supreme Court is a legal seal for the demolition of many houses in other areas of Jerusalem near the separation wall. It is likely that the right-wing parties will take advantage of the decision to demolish more Palestinian homes in Jerusalem in their political activities at the gates of the Israeli Knesset election campaign. It also warned that the Israeli occupation authorities would demolish the village of Al-Khan al-Ahmar before the Knesset elections on 17 September. In the wake of calls by the extreme right to immediately demolish this village, claiming that Israel is not allocating adequate resources to stop what they call the control of the Palestinian Authority over Area C, and that the Minister of Defense and the next Prime Minister should "take this as a national project"

The "Regavim" settlement movement published large ads in the newspapers last week, entitled "State of Terror Behind the Turning Point", claiming that the Palestinians built 28651 new buildings in Area C, which is under Israeli control under the Oslo Accords, "under the nose Government "of Israel. The Regevim movement, whose delegates hold positions in the government of Benjamin Netanyahu, most notably Minister Betzeliel Smutrich, calls on ministers and Knesset members to begin working immediately to prevent a state of terrorism in our territory. At the beginning of the year, Yisrael Beiteinu party chairman Avigdor Lieberman also considered the Red Khan "an indication of the PA's control of the state's territory." , Followed by the leader of the "New Right"

On the other hand, the Israeli occupation authorities have facilitated the construction of some 16 new settlement outposts since 2017. These outposts are spread throughout the West Bank, from the southern Hebron hills to the northern Jordan Valley, and in the Gush Etzion settlement blocs between Bethlehem and Hebron, Benjamin from Jerusalem to the settlement of "Ariel" on the territory of Salfit. These new outposts are diverse in nature, between agriculture and housing. They were established on land that the occupation claims to be the territory of a state illegally under the laws of the occupation. These outposts, which are under the protection of the occupation authorities and are openly active in terrorist organizations, are being installed. They are ignored by the so-called "civil administration." Israeli law is rarely applied to them except in a very limited manner. Country"

The Peace Now movement conducted a survey of 16 settlement outposts, noting that since 2012, 31 new illegal outposts have been established, including 21 farms that occupy large areas for grazing and farming. Fifteen outposts were also legitimized and turned into settlements or neighborhoods in existing settlements. There are 35 such settlement outposts.

In the context of supporting the Israeli judiciary in general and the settlers in particular and protecting them, the Judge of the Israeli Lod Court attempted to put pressure on the Israeli Attorney General's Office to amend the indictment against a settler involved in the burning and murder of the Dawabsha family in Duma, Nablus, at the end of July 2015. The judge asked the Attorney General's Office to withdraw the regulation against the settler and to amend it in respect of being a member of a Jewish terrorist organization. The judge suggested that the prosecutor's office reconsider and consider in the long term such an accusation against the settler, especially since he (the settler) claimed that he was severely tortured and forced him to admit it.

The weekly violations documented by the National Office for the Defense of the Earth were as follows in the reporting period:

The settlers' incursions coincided with calls by extremist groups within the framework of the so-called "Union of the Organization of the Temple" to expropriate al-Aqsa Mosque in large numbers of settlers. The Temple groups took advantage of the 17th of July (the day of fasting) in the creation of Judaic programs carried out by extremist groups, including the intensification of the central incursions and the extension programs and the organization of a large Judaic procession around the walls of Old Jerusalem. While the young man Fuad al-Rajabi was injured after the settlers attacked him in Baten Al-Hawa neighborhood in the town of Silwan, south of Al-Aqsa Mosque after being prevented from taking a piece of land in the neighborhood,
