Israel Steps up Homes Demolition in Areas C, forcing Palestinians to leave

The National Bureau for defending land and resisting settlements stated in its latest weekly report , that ahead of Israel’s March 2 Knesset elections, the Israeli far-right leaders made statements that reflected their intention to annex the Jordan Valley and area C in the West Bank, their expansionist mentality, and their hatred to peace. We also noticed that the extremist Kahol Lavan party leaders accused the Likud party of stealing their ideas about the annexation of the valleys, and imposing Israeli sovereignty over it. Moreover, the Israeli occupation continues to demolish Palestinian houses in areas C,  as they were classified under the Israeli – Palestinian agreements. Knowing that areas C constitute 61% of the occupied West Bank area, including Jerusalem. As for the Israeli Civil Administration, it only approved 21 building permits out of 1485 permits in these areas submitted by the Palestinians, which means rejecting 98.6% of the permits. We have noticed over the last decades that expanding the demolition of Palestinian homes is a programs for the upcoming Israeli elections Israel uses the Palestinian in their elections agendas

In 2016 – 2018, the Occupation Authorities issued 2,147 demolishing orders of Palestinian houses in area C under the pretext of not having building permits. During this period, Israel claimed the issuance of 56 building permits, of which 35 were rejected. Worth mentioning that the Israeli occupation prevented the building of a school in the Jahali area, which resulted in transferring the Jahalin’s students into another remote schools in Al-Eizariya, adding that in 2000 – 2018, the Palestinians submitted 6,532 applications for building permits in area C, but only 210 of them i.e. 3.2% were approved, knowing that about 240 Palestinian villages located in areas C.

The Occupation Forces also issued orders to evacuate 22 houses due to settlement excavations in the Bab Al-Silsilah Neighborhood, resulted in  the displacement of about  200  people of 22 families, as well as, forcing the vacation of  building of Nasser al-Rajabi family in the Batn al-Hawa Neighborhood in  the Silwan town. On the other hand, in the eastern part of Jerusalem, the Israeli Authorities demolished  more than 200 Palestinian houses in 2019, 177 houses in 2018 and 142 houses in 2017.

On the other hand, Presidents of Sates of more than 40 countries came to Israel in order to mark the 75th anniversary of the Holocaust committed by the Nazis against the Jews at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Camp in Poland. In the presence of  Russian President, Vladimir Putin, whose country had the greatest credit for victory over Hitler Germany and the liberation of mankind from the evils of the Nazi monster, who put on his agenda at that time the purification of Europe from Jews, Gypsies and Slavic peoples, passing through the American Vice President, Mike Pence and ending with the French President, Macron. The President of Poland, Andje Doda , whose Holocaust  took place in his country did not participate in the ceremony, refused to attend and considered the ceremony an unnecessary hypocrisy because the main ceremony should take place in Poland and in Auschwitz camp in particular, but not in a place where no crime against the Jews occurred. The Occupying State has tried to use the occasion and exploit it politically and informally, forgetting that it occupies the land of another country, and practices crimes against the Palestinian people that rise to the level of war crimes against humanity.

Within the context, the representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Political Affairs, Rose Marie DiCarlo reiterated the illegalness of Israeli settlement under international law, knowing that the annexation of some or all of the land in the West Bank is a blow to the possibility of reviving negotiations and peace between them. For his part, the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nikolai Mladenov, also considered  the Israeli plans to annex the Jordan Valley as a blow for the negotiations and peace process.

For his part, the Minister of the Israeli Occupation Army, Naftali Bennett, issued an administrative order to deport Israeli leftist activists from the West Bank and prevent  them from entering it. Bennett’s decision includes about 30 Israeli activists in the “Anarchists against the Apartheid Wall ” Movement, among them the movement’s most prominent leader, Yonatan Pollack. Bennett also instructed the occupation forces to confront their rallies.
