Summary

 

Israeli violations of international law and humanitarian law in the OPT continued during the reporting period (14 – 20 October 2010):

 

Shooting:

 

During the reporting period, IOF killed two members of the Palestinian resistance in the Gaza Strip, and wounded 3 civilians, including a child, in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. 

 

In the Gaza Strip, on 17 October 2010, two member of the Palestinian resistance were killed by a missile fired by an Israeli warplane in the northern Gaza Strip.  

 

During the reporting period, a Palestinian child was wounded when Israeli soldiers stationed at the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel fired at them while collecting raw construction materials. 

 

On 20 October 2010, a Palestinian farmer was wounded by Israeli gunfire in Khan Yunis during an Israeli incursion.

 

During the reporting period, IOF used excessive force to disperse peaceful demonstrations organized in protest to Israeli settlement activities and the construction of the annexation wall. As a result, a Palestinian civilian was wounded, and dozens of Palestinian civilians and international human rights defenders suffered from tear gas inhalation or sustained bruises. IOF also arrested 5 demonstrators, including two Israeli human rights defenders.  

 

Incursions:

 

During the reporting period, IOF conducted at least 34 military incursions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank, during which they arrested 7 Palestinian civilians, including a members of the Palestinian Legislative Council.  

 

In the Gaza Strip, IOF conducted 5 limited incursions into Palestinian communities, during which they leveled areas of Palestinian land, which they had already razed.  

 

Restrictions on Movement: Israel had continued to impose a tightened siege on the OPT and imposed severe restrictions on the movement of Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem.

 

Gaza Strip

 

Israel has continuously closed all border crossings to the Gaza Strip for over three years. The illegal Israeli-imposed closure of the Gaza Strip, which has steadily tightened since June 2007, has had a disastrous impact on the humanitarian and economic situation in the Gaza Strip. 

 

· The illegal closure has caused not only a humanitarian crisis but a crisis of human rights and human dignity for the population of the Gaza Strip. Measures declared recently to ease the blockade are vague, purely cosmetic and fail to deal with the root causes of the crisis, which can only be addressed by an immediate and complete lifting of the closure, including lifting the travel ban into and out of the Gaza Strip and the ban on exports. PCHR is concerned that the new Israeli policy is simply shifting Gaza to another form of illegal blockade, one that may become internationally accepted and institutionalized. Palestinians in Gaza may no longer suffer from the same shortage of goods, but they will remain economically dependent and unable to care for themselves, and socially, culturally and academically isolated from the rest of the world.

 

· Expanding the list of items allowed into Gaza does not change the illegality of this policy, which is inconsistent with Israel’s legal obligations both as an Occupying Power and under international human rights treaties to which it is party, such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. 

 

· Facts on the ground refute Israeli claims with respect to the easing of the closure imposed on the Gaza Strip and the reduction of restrictions imposed on the entry of goods.

 

· Israeli declaration of allowing new goods to be entered into the Gaza Strip constitutes an attempt to delude the international community, as such goods do not meet the minimal needs of the Gaza Strip. 

 

· IOF have continued to ban the entry of raw construction materials into the Gaza Strip. 

 

· IOF have imposed a ban on all exports from the Gaza Strip. 

 

· Israel had continued to close Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing to Palestinian civilians wishing to travel to the West Bank and Israeli for medical treatment, trade or social visits.

 

· Israel has imposed additional access restrictions on international diplomats, journalists and humanitarian workers seeking to enter the Gaza Strip. They have prevented representatives of several international humanitarian organizations from entering the Gaza Strip.

 

· Living conditions of the Palestinian civilian population have seriously deteriorated; levels of poverty and unemployment have mounted sharply.

 

West Bank

 

IOF have continued to impose severe restrictions on the movement of Palestinian civilians throughout the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem. Thousands of Palestinian civilians from the West Bank and the Gaza Strip continue to be denied access to Jerusalem.

 

· IOF have established checkpoints in and around Jerusalem, severely restricting Palestinian access to the city. Civilians are frequently prevented from praying at al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.

 

· There are approximately 585 permanent roadblocks, and manned and unmanned checkpoints across the West Bank.

 

· When complete, the illegal Annexation Wall will stretch for 724 kilometers around the West Bank, further isolating the entire population. 350 kilometers of the Wall have already been constructed. Approximately 99% of the Wall has been constructed inside the West Bank itself, further confiscating Palestinian land.

 

· At least 65% of the main roads that lead to 18 Palestinian communities in the West Bank are closed or fully controlled by IOF.

 

· There are approximately 500 kilometers of restricted roads across the West Bank. In addition, approximately one third of the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem, is inaccessible to Palestinians without a permit issued by the IOF. These permits are extremely difficult to obtain.

 

· IOF continue to harass, and assault demonstrators who hold peaceful protests against the construction of the Annexation Wall.

 

· Palestinian civilians continue to be harassed by IOF in Jerusalem, and across the West Bank, including being regularly stopped and searched in the streets by IOF.

 

Measures Aimed at Creating a Jewish Demographic Majority in Jerusalem: 

 

IOF have continued to take measures at creating a Jewish majority in Jerusalem. During the reporting period, IOF attempted 3 times to dismantle a sit-in tent set up by Palestinian civilians in al-Bustan quarter in Silwan village to the south of the old town of Jerusalem. 

 

On 17 October 2010, IOF arrested a Palestinian child who was run down by an Israeli settler in Silwan village. An Israeli court placed the child under house arrest and imposed a fine on his family.

 

Settlement Activities:

 

Israel has continued its settlement activities in the OPT in violation of international humanitarian law, and Israeli settlers have continued to attack Palestinian civilians and property. 

 

During the reporting period, IOF ordered the confiscation of 11,245 square meters of Palestinian land in Kufor Qaddoum village, east of Qalqilya, to establish a settler road. In the same context, Israeli settlers seized large areas of Palestinian land in Mas'ha village near Salfit. 

 

On 15 October 2010, Israeli settlers set fire to at least 100 donums of agricultural land in Til village near Nablus. 

 

On 17 October 2010, Israeli settlers pumped waste water on large areas of Palestinian agricultural land in Beit Ummar village near Hebron.

 

On 20 October 2010, Israeli settlers burnt a store in a school near Nablus. 

 

During the reporting period, Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian farmers while cropping olives in various areas in the West Bank.
