Occupation is expanding to demolish the homes of citizens in Area C

 (Weekly Settlement Report) The statements of leaders of the right-wing and far-right parties in Israel, which reflect the settler and aggressive expansionist hostilities hostile to these parties, are continuing at the gates of the upcoming elections for the Knesset on the second of next March. Kahl Lavan's leaders have not fallen behind as well, after they accused the Likud and its leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, of stealing their ideas about annexing the Palestinian valleys to the occupation state and imposing Israeli sovereignty over it. In addition to the policy of annexation and settlement expansion, the policy of expansion in the demolition of Palestinian homes in areas classified according to the Israeli-Palestinian agreements in Area C, which constitute 61% of the occupied West Bank area, including the city and the Jerusalem governorate, will prevail in Israel.

Recently, the "Civil Administration" of the Israeli occupation army admitted that it approved only 21 requests submitted by Palestinians to obtain building permits in Area C in the West Bank, out of 1485 requests submitted by Palestinians, meaning that 98.6% of the requests were rejected in the years 2016 - 2018. During the same period, the occupation authorities issued 2,147 orders to demolish Palestinian buildings in the same area, alleging the unauthorized construction. According to the data, the “Civil Administration” claimed that it issued 56 building permits during this period, but it turned out that 35 of them were not issued according to requests submitted by Palestinians, but rather in the context of the occupation’s plan to transfer the Jahalin tribe members from their place of residence, east of Jerusalem, to an area near Al-Eizariya. The Civil Administration data added that from 2000 to 2018, the Palestinians submitted 6,532 applications for building permits in Area C, and only 210 (3.2%) were approved. And she said "

Returning to the first years of the occupation, the occupation authorities approved most requests for building permits in the entire West Bank, but the situation changed after the division of the West Bank into areas A, B and C, according to the Oslo agreements Signed between the Palestinian and Israeli sides in the White House lawn in September of 1993. While the occupation authorities approved 97% or 96% of requests for building permits in the West Bank, the approval of such requests decreased to 32% in 1988 and nearly vanished after the signing The Oslo Accords are to be replaced by a policy of demolishing Palestinian homes in that area Its area is 61% of the West Bank.

There are about 240 Palestinian villages in Area C, but for only 27 of them there are structural maps. Alon Cohen-Lifchitz-Cohen-Liveschitz, according to the Center for the Categorized Area (C) in the organization, “The area in which the Palestinians can legally build and within the framework of approved plans is 0.5% of Area C, while the area of ​​plans for structural settlements is 26% of the area categorized as Area C. In addition to that, the Palestinians are not represented in the planning committees of the occupation and its civil administration, the plans laid down by the Palestinian local councils are not pushed forward, and the planning authorities of the civil administration systematically refuse to grant building or organization permits and intentionally prevent any possibility of business to build Palestinian legal in this region .

The occupation authorities continue the policy of restricting Palestinian citizens in the city of Jerusalem and its environs in the context of the policy of silent displacement and ethnic cleansing. The occupation authorities recently escalated their violations against the Jerusalemites and their property, and delivered notices to evacuate and demolish 30 homes in several neighborhoods of Jerusalem. After less than 6 months after the demolition of 10 buildings in Wadi Homs neighborhood in Tire Bahir, the occupation court issued a final ruling regarding four orders Demolition located in Area A in Wadi Al-Homs in the town of Sur Baher, which the occupation army’s position started for the second time, by demolishing homes in Area A on the pretext of being close to the wall, according to Military Order 8/10 which is “preventing construction near the wall,” regardless Regarding the classification of the land and whether it is in Area (A) or (B). The Israeli municipality's crews handed over the owners of residential buildings in the Shuafat refugee camp, north-east of Jerusalem, orders to demolish them on the pretext of not licensing and their proximity to the Apartheid Wall, and these buildings are located in the Ras Shehadeh neighborhood, Al-Salam suburb, and the Awqaf neighborhood in the Shuafat camp, citing that their owners do not obtain building permits, And its proximity to the wall. And among each of the three buildings, there are about twenty apartments inhabited by dozens of Palestinian families who will be displaced if the demolition took place.

The Occupation Forces also issued orders to evacuate 22 homes in the Bab Al-Silsilah neighborhood, as a result of cracking caused by the settlement excavations below, which would cause the displacement of nearly 200 people from 22 families in the open. In the town of Silwan, the occupation court issued a decision to vacate the building of the Nasser al-Rajabi family in the Batn al-Hawa neighborhood in favor of a “settlement association” consisting of 3 floors (3 apartments), housing 16 individuals, and the targeted building falls within the “Ateret Cohenim” scheme to control 5 dunums And 200 square meters from the central neighborhood of the neighborhood, "the belly of passion" and on the ground about 35 residential buildings, and all of its residents have lived in the neighborhood for decades, after purchasing land and property from their former owners on official papers.

In general, the policy of demolishing Palestinian homes in the city of Jerusalem has not stopped. Rather, it is on the rise with the aim of pressuring Jerusalemites and pushing them to emigrate outside their city. The Israeli authorities demolished more than 200 Palestinian homes in the eastern part of Jerusalem in 2019, compared to 177 in 2018 and 142 in 2017.

In the city of Hebron, settler attacks increased against Palestinian citizens and their religious sanctities. A recent Israeli statistic showed that last year 2019 witnessed the largest incursion into the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron since the occupation of the city in 67. According to data published by the so-called West Bank Settlements Council, last year saw 1,456,953 settlers and tourists storming the Ibrahimi Mosque, a huge increase of 90.6% compared to The year before 2018, and a new record in the wave of incursions into the mosque. The statistic showed that among the 711,428 of the total intruders were Jewish settlers, compared to 401,022 in the year before 2018, and 307,068 in 2017, which is a 77% increase compared to the year Past 2018.

On the other hand, heads of state and government from more than 40 countries flocked to Israel to commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Holocaust committed by the Nazi monster against the Jews at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp in Poland. Everyone attended, starting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose country had the greatest credit for the victory over Hitler Germany and the liberation of mankind from the evils of the Nazi monster, who put on his agenda at the time the purification of Europe of Jews, Gypsies and Slavic peoples, passing through the American Vice President Mike Pence and ending with French President Macron. The President of Poland, Andje Doda, whose Holocaust lands took place, did not participate in the ceremony, and he refused to attend and considered the ceremony an unnecessary hypocrisy because the main ceremony should be in Poland and in Auschwitz camp in particular, and not in a place where no crime against the Jews occurred.

The occupation leaders anticipated this meeting by issuing statements about the annexation of the Jordan Valley and the application of Israeli sovereignty over the areas classified as (C) after the upcoming elections to the Knesset on the second of next March. And, imposing Israeli law on settlements in the West Bank, to a central address in the election campaigns of right-wing parties in Israel, including the "Kabul Lavan" party. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that the Israeli government intends to impose Israeli law on all settlements in the West Bank without exception, while asserting the Minister of the Army, Naftali Bennett, on Israel's intention to impose sovereignty over Area C in the West Bank, and to stop construction The Palestinian is there.

Likud officials said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked US President Donald Trump and White House leaders to obtain a green light to advance the move to implement sovereignty over the Jordan Valley before the Israeli elections. In the context, a poll published last week showed that a third of Israelis support the annexation of the Jordan Valley before the third Knesset elections. According to the poll, published by the "Wala" website, 35% support the unilateral annexation of the Jordan Valley before the elections, and 30% oppose that, but 35% say they do not know the answer. This poll comes the day after the US administration announced the invitation of Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, and the head of the "Anonymous Lavan" bloc, Benny Gantz, to the White House to discuss with them the details of the "deal of the century", whose terms included the situation in the Jordan Valley

In this context, the representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Political Affairs Rose Marie DiCarlo reiterated that all Israeli settlements are illegal under international law, noting that the annexation of some or all of the area classified as "C" in the West Bank would constitute a devastating blow to the possibility of reviving negotiations and advancing peace. . This came during the regular meeting of the Security Council to discuss the Palestinian issue, where most of the countries focused in their statements on their categorical rejection of Israel's attempts to annex parts of the occupied West Bank, which is considered a serious violation of international law, and eliminates the two-state solution based on the 1967 borders.

In the context, the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nikolai Mladenov, warned that the Israeli plans to annex the Jordan Valley were a "devastating blow" to the possibility of resuming Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. Meanwhile, Jason Greenblatt replied to him, saying: "I respect you and appreciate your statements that are not distinguished by normal diplomatic speech and do not agree on everything. On this issue (sovereignty), we differ very strongly. In order for a peace agreement to really go into effect, the reality must be seen as it is in all What is related to “Judea and Samaria” (West Bank)?

In an exceptional move, the Israeli occupation army minister, Naftali Bennett, issued an administrative order to deport Israeli left-wing activists from the West Bank and prohibit them from entering them. Bennett's decision includes about 30 Israeli activists in the "Anarchists Against the Wall / Apartheid" movement, among them the movement's most prominent leader, Yonatan Pollack. Bennett also instructed the occupation forces to "work with a harsh hand" to confront the demonstrations in which activists participate against the Apartheid Wall in the West Bank.
