Hamas accuses Israel of fabricating rocket claim to justify airstrikes in Gaza

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli air force launched at least two airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip early Tuesday, with the Israeli army saying the attacks targeted two Hamas militarily infrastructures and were in response to a rocket fired from Gaza late Monday, which allegedly landed in an open area in Israel's Shaar Hanegev Regional Council that borders northeastern Gaza, causing no injuries or damages.

No injuries were reported as a result of the airstrikes, which hit both Gaza City and Rafah.

"Since the terror organization Hamas is the ruler of the Gaza Strip, it is responsible for any attempt to harm the State of Israel," the Israeli army said in a statement following the aerial attack.

However, in a statement, the Hamas movement accused Israel of fabricating claims of rocket fire to justify the attack. "The Israeli claim of a rocket being fired from Gaza and issuing a statement on behalf of ISIS to justify the escalation and an attack of resistance positions are part of a dangerous and transparent Israeli game."

The statement referred to reports in Israeli media that claimed a Salafist group in Gaza affiliated to the so-called Islamic State claimed responsibility for the alleged rocket fire. 

Hamas has not claimed responsibility for any rocket attacks since a ceasefire was declared after the 2014 war, and the movement has attempted to clamp down on armed activity by smaller political groups that do launch rockets from the territory.

Israeli officials have nonetheless accused Hamas of "preparing" for another war with Israel and have threatened retaliatory measures against the Gaza Strip as a whole.

The attacks came as Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave are being forced to cope with just a few hours of electricity a day since Israel agreed to a Palestinian Authority request to dramatically cut electricity supplies to territory. 

The Gaza Strip marked the ten-year anniversary of Israel’s siege of the small Palestinian enclave this month, with the humanitarian situation there continuing to alarm rights groups that have denounced the Gaza's inhuman conditions as "unparalleled in the modern world.”

Aïn el-Héloué : bras de fer entre Libanais et Palestiniens au sujet d’un terroriste en cavale

 
 
 
Décryptage
28/06/2017
 
 
 
 
 
 
Une fois de plus, le Liban a montré qu'il était différent de ses voisins. Non seulement les Libanais ont pu célébrer la fin du mois de jeûne chez les musulmans sans incident sécuritaire majeur, mais les discours prononcés à cette occasion ont été marqués par la volonté de vivre ensemble et l'importance de la diversité religieuse et confessionnelle pour l'existence même de ce pays. Mais cette harmonie, au moins médiatique, n'aurait pas été possible sans les efforts et la vigilance des différents services de sécurité qui continuent dans la plus grande discrétion à traquer les cellules terroristes.
 
Les réunions de coordination se multiplient entre eux, en présence du conseiller militaire et sécuritaire du chef de l'État qui suit de près ce dossier et qui y accorde la plus haute attention.
 
L'action des services de sécurité libanais dans la lutte contre le terrorisme est d'ailleurs au centre de l'intérêt que portent les pays occidentaux et étrangers au Liban. C'est ainsi que ce dossier a été au cœur des entretiens de l'émissaire chinois chargé du dossier syrien qui a eu plusieurs rencontres au Liban, dont une avec le représentant du Hezbollah, Ammar Moussaoui. De même, le ministre d'État britannique chargé des questions sécuritaires a effectué une visite au Liban au cours de laquelle il s'est entretenu, entre autres, avec les responsables sécuritaires.
 
Selon des informations recoupées, les entretiens des étrangers avec les responsables sécuritaires sont axés sur deux points : d'une part l'éloge des services libanais qui réussissent là où leurs équivalents étrangers sont en train d'échouer et, d'autre part, sur les moyens de les aider à enregistrer encore plus de succès dans leur lutte contre le terrorisme. De plus, les représentants de la communauté internationale, dans toute leur diversité, insistent sur le fait que la stabilité du Liban est actuellement primordiale pour toutes les parties.

Selon une source sécuritaire autorisée, les émissaires étrangers posent aussi, au cours de leurs entretiens avec les responsables sécuritaires libanais, beaucoup de questions sur les activités du Hezbollah et sur l'étendue de sa coordination avec les services officiels. Ce qui signifie que, contrairement aux déclarations médiatiques hostiles au Hezbollah, les émissaires étrangers voient d'un œil positif son rôle à l'intérieur du pays dans la consolidation de la stabilité.

D'ailleurs, même si peu de parties le reconnaissent ouvertement, le Hezbollah contribue au démantèlement des réseaux terroristes, à travers l'échange d'informations en raison notamment de sa connaissance des milieux palestiniens.

À ce sujet, il faut préciser qu'un nouveau contentieux oppose les services libanais, notamment la Sûreté générale, aux factions palestiniennes présentes dans le camp de Aïn el-Héloué. Il y a une dizaine de jours, la Sûreté générale avait en effet démantelé un important réseau terroriste qui s'apprêtait à accomplir de graves attentats au Liban pendant la période de la fête du Fitr, contre des institutions publiques et des lieux religieux. La SG avait capturé quatre membres de ce réseau, et suite à leurs aveux, elle avait réussi à remonter jusqu'au cerveau présumé, un Palestinien qui se fait appeler Khaled Sayed, alors que son vrai nom est Khaled Massaad.

Recherché activement par la Sûreté générale, le cerveau présumé de la cellule a disparu de la circulation. Selon des informations qualifiées de fiables, il serait désormais dans le camp de Aïn el-Héloué.
 
Des contacts ont été aussitôt entrepris avec les différentes organisations palestiniennes pour obtenir qu'il soit livré aux autorités libanaises. La Sûreté générale aurait même sommé la commission sécuritaire conjointe en charge de la sécurité à Aïn el-Héloué (elle avait été formée après les derniers affrontements internes pour éviter un nouvel embrasement) de ne pas contribuer à cacher Khaled Massaad qui, selon l'enquête, aurait joué un rôle crucial dans le recrutement des membres du réseau terroriste et dans la planification des attentats, étant en contact direct avec le fief de l'État islamique à Raqqa.
 
Mais jusqu'à présent, la commission palestinienne conjointe s'est contentée de faire des promesses qui ne se sont pas encore concrétisées.
 
Selon certaines informations, Khaled Massaad aurait eu recours à la protection du Hamas palestinien, qui nie toutefois être impliqué dans ce dossier. Pour la Sûreté générale, le fait de prétendre que Khaled Massaad n'a pas été localisé car il se cache est inacceptable. Elle aurait donc fait savoir à ses interlocuteurs palestiniens que cette excuse ne sera pas acceptée.
 
De son côté, le Hezbollah a abordé ce sujet avec les responsables du Hamas récemment de passage à Beyrouth, insistant sur l'importance pour les Palestiniens de ne pas abriter dans leurs camps des terroristes recherchés par la justice libanaise, car ce n'est ni dans l'intérêt du Liban ni dans celui des Palestiniens.
 
Le message est donc clair : aucun compromis n'est possible au sujet du sort des terroristes présumés. Cette démarche intervient au moment où des informations de plus en plus précises circulent sur l'imminence d'une importante opération libanaise dans le jurd de Ersal contre les groupes de terroristes qui y sont encore installés. Cette opération serait devenue inévitable après l'échec des négociations pour un retrait calme des jihadistes installés dans ce secteur.

Clashes erupt, Palestinian injured as Israeli forces deliver demolition notices
 
 
 

RAMALLAH, June 27, 2017 (WAFA) – A Palestinian was on Tuesday injured by Israeli army fire during clashes which erupted in the village of al-Mughayer, east of Ramallah in the West Bank, after the army notified some of the village’s residents of their intention to demolish their homes.

Witnesses told WAFA that Israeli army broke into the village and handed home demolition orders to some of the village’s residents, under the pretext of building without an Israeli permit.

Army further handed an order banning entry and exit of local residents to and from the village between 6:00 PM and 1:00 AM.

Clashes erupted with local teenagers after Israeli crackdown on the village. The soldiers used rubber-coated steel rounds to disperse the angry protesters, injuring one of them. They also arrested one of the protesters.

La crise du Golfe sur tweeter : Duel entre Hafidh Derraji et l’ami d’Ennahar le "cheikh" Wassim Youcef

                                                                           

       

       
      Hafidh Derraji et Wassim Youcef: ça crépite

       

      Entre le Qatar et des pays arabes menés par l’Arabie saoudite, rien ne va plus. La bataille est également dans les réseaux.  Sur Tweeter le duel a eu lieu entre le «cheikh » Wassim Youcef, «interprétateur de rêves » et l’algérien Hafidh Derraji. Crépitant.

       

      Wissam Youcef, pour édifier ceux qui ne le connaissent pas était à Alger, en mars dernier, invité par Ennahar et entouré d’égard par les autorités. Au cours de sa virée algérienne, il s’en était pris au Cheikh Farkous réputé pour être le guide de la «salafiya El 3ilmya » en Algérie. Son passage n’a pas été apprécié par le MSP et les Oulémas qui s’étaient étonné de l’importance accordé à ce présumé interprétateur des rêves.

      Ses sorties récentes sur Twitter, pleines d’amalgames, dans le cadre de la «guerre » contre le Qatar, ont débordé du Khalij. Et quand il a affirmé dans un tweet que les qataris sont détestés par tous les peuples, y compris par les Algériens, Hafid Derraji, journaliste à à la chaine qatarie Bein TV, n’a pas laissé passer. Et cela a donné des tweets électriques où selon les « like » l’algérien l’a largement emporté.  

      Le prédicateur jordanien Wassim Youcef, établi aux Emirats Arabes Unis, s’est fait une spécialité de déverser son fiel contre les dirigeants et les médias (en fait al-jazeera) du Qatar. Le 24 juin dernier, il twitte que les qataris sont détestés par les peuples algérien, égyptien et libyen en raison de la politique de leur Etat.

       Hafidh Derradji, journaliste sportif à la chaîne qatarie BeIn sport (ex- Al Jazeera Sport) n’a pas apprécié et a riposté en déniant le droit de parler au nom de l’Algérie et des Algériens. « Vous n’avez même pas le droit de parler au nom de votre pays d’origine et encore moins des algériens qui savent distinguer entre e mauvais et le bon », a-t-il rétorqué.

       C’était le début d’une polémique enflammée. Le « prédicateur » qui a été accueilli en grande pompe en Algérie sur invitation d’Ennahar-Tv s’est lâché en accusant ceux qui travaillent dans la chaîne  Al Jazeera d’être des « traîtres» au services « des intérêts du Qatar ».« La chaîne El Jazeera n’accueille que les traîtres de leurs pays ». De la grosse artillerie qui assimile toute critique ou opposition à de la trahison.

       

       "Victoire" écrasante de Hafidh Derradji

       Hafidh Derraji n’a pas apprécié l’amalgame du «cheikh » et lui rétorque qu’en « Algérie, nous avons le courage d’exprimer nos opinions en toute liberté et nous n’exprimons jamais au nom des autres ».

       Le prédicateur présumé «spécialiste de l’interprétation des rêves » et propagandiste avéré des émirs du Golfe en a rajouté sur le thème de la trahison en accusant Derradji d’avoir été recruté non sur la base de ses compétences mais pour «sa trahison ». Réponse méprisante et très algérienne de Derradji : « Nous, nous respectons les gens est compris les chouyoukh taiwans ».

       La «bataille » a duré deux jours sur le réseau twitter et a suscité de nombreuses réactions. Au décompte final, le journaliste algérien l’a très largement emporté sur le prédicateur. Le meilleur des twitte du «cheikh » a collecté 156 « j’aime » et a été retweeté 66 fois.  Le meilleur tweet de Derradji a obtenu plus de 2400 « j’aime » et a été retweeté plus de 1800 fois.

       La « performance » de Derraji est d’autant remarquable qu’il n’a que 65065 abonnés sur compte tweeter comme 1,12 millions pour le cheikh interprétateur de rêves. A l’évidence, ses incursions en politique ne font pas «rêver » ses followers.

      UAE envoy: Gulf states considering new Qatar sanctions

       

      Saudi-led bloc could take further action against Qatar by 'imposing conditions on trade partners', UAE envoy says.

       
       

      A Saudi-led bloc is considering fresh sanctions against Qatar that may include asking trading partners to choose between them or Doha, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) ambassador to Russia said.

      In an interview with The Guardian newspaper, envoy Omar Ghobash said the expulsion of Qatar from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) was "not the only sanction available" for the UAE and its allies.

      "There are certain economic sanctions that we can take which are being considered right now," Ghobash said in the interview, which was published on Wednesday.

      "One possibility would be to impose conditions on our own trading partners and say: you want to work with us then you have got to make a commercial choice," he added.

      Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties with Qatar and imposed sanctions on the country on June 5, accusing it of supporting "terrorism".

      The four countries have not provided any evidence for their claim, while Qatar has repeatedly rejected the allegation.

      Ghobash said that if Qatar "was not willing to accept the demands, it is a case of 'Goodbye Qatar' we do not need you in our tent any more".

      'We don't claim to have press freedom'

      On Thursday, the Saudi-led bloc issued a 13-point demand list in exchange for the end of the anti-Qatar measures and gave a 10-day deadline. 

       
      INSIDE STORY: What is behind the campaign against Al Jazeera?

       

      The demands included, among others, that Qatar shut down the Al Jazeera media network, close a Turkish military base and scale down ties with Iran.

      When asked if the closure of Al Jazeera was a valid demand, Ghobash told The Guardian that the UAE does not "claim to have press freedom".

      "We do not promote the idea of press freedom. What we talk about is responsibility in speech," he said.

      He added that speech in the Gulf "has particular context, and that context can go from peaceful to violent in no time simply because of the words that are spoken".

      INTERACTIVE: Who's who of the GCC crisis?

      Ghobash also said that the UAE was willing to hold itself to the same standards it was asking of Qatar.

      He echoed previous statements by UAE officials that the Gulf states do not wish to escalate the conflict with military action.

      "We can escalate with more information, because we are not going to escalate militarily. That is not the way we are looking at things."

      NGO: Israel practices 'systematic torture' on Palestinian detainees

       
       
       
       
      June 26, 2017 8:51 P.M. (Updated: June 27, 2017 9:40 A.M.)
       
       
      Palestinian prisoners walk at the yard of Megiddo prison, 2005 (AFP/Menahem Kahana/File)
       
       
       
       
      BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Palestinian prisoners’ rights group Addameer released a statement on Monday, International Day to Support Victims of Torture, highlighting Israel’s use of “torture and ill-treatment” on Palestinian detainees, which has led to the death of 73 Palestinians since 1967.

      According to Addameer, Israeli authorities' practice of torture, which it said has been carried out in a “systematic manner,” contravenes numerous international laws and conventions prohibiting the use of torture, and that Israeli prison officials are rarely held accountable for the abuse of Palestinian prisoners.

      Since 1967, when Israel occupied the Palestinian territory, including the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip, 73 Palestinian detainees have died in Israeli custody as a result of torture during interrogations, the group reported, the latest of whom was 30-year-old Arafat Jaradat who is believed to have been tortured to death in Israel’s Megiddo prison in 2013.

      The Israeli Ministry of Health had concluded in its autopsy that no contusions were found on Jaradat’s body except for a fractured rib that occurred close to his death, owing to resuscitation attempts performed by the Israel Prison Service (IPS). 

      However, Addameer pointed out that a commissioned forensic pathology expert had found that Arafat was “severely beaten” while in custody, and that he had developed Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, which had caused his death.

      “Despite this, up to date, no Israeli official has been charged for Jaradat’s death,” Addameer stated.

      Like Jaradat, many other Palestinians have been subjected to “psychological and physical torture” during Israeli interrogations, the group noted, as interrogations can last up to 75 days and lawyers can be denied access to the detainees for the first 60 days of the interrogation.

      The group highlighted certain torture techniques used by Israeli authorities on Palestinians during interrogations, including “prolonged isolation from the outside world; inhuman detention conditions; excessive use of blindfolds and handcuffs; slapping and kicking; sleep deprivation; denial of food and water for extended periods of time; denial of access to toilets; denial of access to showers or change of clothes for days or weeks; exposure to extreme cold or heat; position abuse; yelling and exposure to loud noises; insults and cursing; arresting family members or alleging that family members have been arrested; sexual abuse; slaps, kicks and blows; and violent shaking.”

      Any confessions collected during these episodes of torture are then admissible in Israeli courts, according to Addameer.

      The group went on to underscore the routine practice of physical violence practiced by Israeli forces on Palestinians during detentions, including during nightly predawn raids carried out by Israeli forces where soldiers often forcibly enter Palestinian homes during the dead of night to detain them, while Palestinians often face violence at military checkpoints and streets.

      “While times and places may differ with regards to the arrest of the Palestinian detainees, the policy of physical assaults against the detainees is systematic and practiced in a widespread manner, regardless of age, gender, or health conditions,” the group said.

      Addameer called on Antonio Guterres, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, to take action in order to ensure Israel abides by international law and to permit UN officials to visit Israel’s prisons in order to “monitor and investigate the conditions and allegations of torture.”

      Addameer also urged the UN and other parties to call on the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate Israel’s use of torture on Palestinians.

      Palestinian detainees, many of whom are minors, have often accused Israel of practicing torture. Earlier this year, the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs detailed the torture of two Palestinian teenagers during their interrogations with Israeli authorities.

      Musab Muhammad Ghneimat, 17, explained how he was shot with live ammunition while running away from soldiers who accused him of carrying out a stabbing attack. Once he was immobilized, an Israeli soldier fired two rounds on the ground near him and a third at his wounded foot from point-blank range.

      Similarly, 16-year-old Ayad Amr said he was detained after Israeli soldiers broke into and ransacked his house during a predawn raid.

      He said he was handcuffed and blindfolded before Israeli forces “dragged” him into a military truck, with soldiers cursing him using "immoral phrases" before being interrogated for hours, as an Israeli officer shouted and cursed at him.

      According to Addameer, 6,200 Palestinians were held in Israeli prisons as of May, most of whom “continue to suffer from systematic intentional torture and ill-treatment.”

      Weekly Report On Israeli Human Rights Violations in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (15 – 21 June 2017)
       

      Israeli forces continue systematic crimes in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt)

      (15 – 21 June 2017)

       

       

      • Israeli forces killed 4 Palestinian civilians in occupied Jerusalem.
      • 12 Palestinian civilians, including 3 children, were wounded in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
      • Israeli forces conducted 42 incursions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank and a limited one in the southern Gaza Strip.

      • 15 civilians, including 2 children and a fieldworker at B’Tselem, were arrested at military checkpoints in the West Bank.

       

       

      Summary

       

      Israeli violations of international law and international humanitarian law in the oPt continued during the reporting period (15-21 June 2017).

       

      Shooting:

      During the reporting period, Israeli forces killed 4 Palestinian civilians, 3 of them were killed in occupied Jerusalem, while the other was killed at Jaba’ military checkpoint, northeast of the City. Israeli forces wounded 12 civilians, including 3 children, in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. In the Gaza Strip, Israeli forces chased the Palestinian fishermen in the Gaza Strip sea and opened fire at the farmers along the border area.

       

      In the Gaza Strip, the border area witnessed peaceful protests against the illegal closure imposed on the Gaza Strip. Israeli forces used force against the protestors, as result, 7 Palestinian civilians, including 3 children, were wounded. Five of them were hit with live bullets and the two others sustained shrapnel wounds.

       

      In the context of Israeli attacks against fishermen in the sea, on 17 June 2017, Israeli gunboats opened fire at and chased Palestinian fishing boats sailing within 3 nautical miles northwest of Beit Lahia, north of the Gaza Strip. The shooting recurred at the Palestinian fishing boats in the same area on 18 and 19 June 2017. As a result, the fishermen were obliged to sail back. Neither casualties nor material damage were reported.

       

      In the West Bank, on 16 June 2017, Israeli forces killed 3 Palestinian civilians from Deir Abu Mash’al village, northwest of Ramallah, and wounded three by-passers when Israeli forces opened fire at the three civilians, who carried out a stabbing and shooting attack in Sultan Suleiman Street at the northern entrance to Bab al-Amoud (Damascus Gate) in occupied East Jerusalem.

       

      On 20 June 2017, Israeli forces stationed at Jaba’ military checkpoint, northeast of occupied Jerusalem, killed Baha’ al-Herbawi (23), from al-Eizariya village, east of the city. Israeli forces claimed that the killed attempted to carried out a stabbing attack against Israeli soldiers during an ordinary check-up at the checkpoint. Therefore, they shot him dead.

       

      In addition to the wounded persons mentioned above, on 17 June 2017, 2 other civilians were wounded during an Israeli incursion into Deir Abu Mash’al village, northwest of Ramallah.

       

      Incursions:

       

      During the reporting period, Israeli forces conducted at least 42 military incursions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank, and 8 others into Jerusalem and its suburbs. During these incursions, Israeli forces arrested at least 65 Palestinian civilians, including 6 children and 2 women. Twenty three of them, including the 6 children, were arrested in occupied Jerusalem and its suburbs.

      Among those arrested was Zainab Mohammed ‘Ankoush (41), the mother of Adel ‘Ankoush who was killed by Israeli forces in Jerusalem on 16 June 2017, as well as Enaya Abed al-Khair Saleh (45), the wife of prisoner Saleh Sulaiman Ata. Both of them are from Deir Abu Mash’al village, northwest of Ramallah.

       

      In the Gaza Strip, on 19 June 2017, Israeli forces moved about 100 meters into al-Shouka village, east of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip. They combed lands along the border fence between Israel and the Gaza Strip and withdrew later.

       

      Collective punishment measures:

       

      Following the stabbing and shooting attack carried out in East Jerusalem on 16 June 2017 that resulted in the killing of 3 Palestinian youngsters and an Israeli female soldier, Israeli forces imposed a series of collective punishment measures against the Palestinian civilians in occupied Jerusalem and later in Deir Abu Mash’al village, northwest of Ramallah, from which the youngsters come.

       

      Restrictions on movement:

       

      Israel continued to impose a tight closure of the oPt, imposing severe restrictions on the movement of Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem.

       

      The illegal closure of the Gaza Strip, which has been steadily tightened since June 2007 has had a disastrous impact on the humanitarian and economic situation in the Gaza Strip.  The Israeli authorities impose measures to undermine the freedom of trade, including the basic needs for the Gaza Strip population and the agricultural and industrial products to be exported. For 9 consecutive years, Israel has tightened the land and naval closure to isolate the Gaza Strip from the West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem, and other countries around the world. This resulted in grave violations of the economic, social and cultural rights and a deterioration of living conditions for 2 million people.  The Israeli authorities have established Karm Abu Salem (Kerem Shaloum) as the sole crossing for imports and exports in order to exercise its control over the Gaza Strip’s economy.  They also aim at imposing a complete ban on the Gaza Strip’s exports. The Israeli closure raised the rate of poverty to 65%. Moreover, the rate of unemployment increased up to 47% and youth constitutes 65% of the unemployed persons.  Moreover, 80% of the Gaza Strip population depends on international aid to secure their minimum daily needs. These rates indicate the unprecedented economic deterioration in the Gaza Strip.

       

      In the West Bank, Israeli forces continued to suffocate the Palestinian cities and village by imposing military checkpoints around and/or between them. This created “cantons” isolated from each other that hinders the movement of civilians. Moreover, the Palestinian civilians suffering aggravated because of the annexation wall and checkpoints erected on daily basis to catch Palestinians.

      Recommendations to the International Community

       

       

      PCHR warns of the escalating settlement construction in the West Bank, the attempts to legitimize settlement outposts established on Palestinian lands in the West Bank and the continued summary executions of Palestinian civilians under the pretext that they pose a security threat to the Israeli forces. PCHR reminds the international community that thousands of Palestinian civilians have been rendered homeless and lived in caravans under tragic circumstances due to the latest Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip that has been under a tight closure for almost 10 years. PCHR welcomes the UN Security Council’s Resolution No. 2334, which states that settlements are a blatant violation of the Geneva Conventions and calls upon Israel to stop them and not to recognize any demographic change in the oPt since 1967.  PCHR hopes this resolution will pave the way for eliminating the settlement crime and bring to justice those responsible for it. PCHR further reiterates that the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, are still under Israeli occupation in spite of Israel’s unilateral disengagement plan of 2005.  PCHR emphasizes that there is international recognition of Israel’s obligation to respect international human rights instruments and international humanitarian law.  Israel is bound to apply international human rights law and the law of war, sometimes reciprocally and other times in parallel, in a way that achieves the best protection for civilians and remedy for the victims.

       

      1. PCHR calls upon the international community to respect the Security Council’s Resolution No. 2334 and to ensure that Israel respects it as well, in particular point 5 which obliges Israel not to deal with settlements as if they were part of Israel.
      2. PCHR calls upon the ICC in 2017 to open an investigation into Israeli crimes committed in the oPt, particularly the settlement crimes and the 2014 offensive on the Gaza Strip.
      3. PCHR Calls upon the European Union (EU) and all international bodies to boycott settlements and ban working and investing in them in application of their obligations according to international human rights law and international humanitarian law considering settlements as a war crime.
      4. PCHR calls upon the international community to use all available means to allow the Palestinian people to enjoy their right to self-determination through the establishment of the Palestinian State, which was recognized by the UN General Assembly with a vast majority, using all international legal mechanisms, including sanctions to end the occupation of the State of Palestine.
      5. PCHR calls upon the international community and United Nations to take all necessary measures to stop Israeli policies aimed at creating a Jewish demographic majority in Jerusalem and at voiding Palestine from its original inhabitants through deportations and house demolitions as a collective punishment, which violates international humanitarian law, amounting to a crime against humanity.
      6. PCHR calls upon the international community to condemn summary executions carried out by Israeli forces against Palestinians and to pressurize Israel to stop them.
      7. PCHR calls upon the States Parties to the Rome Statute of the ICC to work hard to hold Israeli war criminals accountable.
      8. PCHR calls upon the High Contracting Parties to the Geneva Conventions to fulfill their obligations under article (1) of the Convention to ensure respect for the Conventions under all circumstances, and under articles (146) and (147) to search for and prosecute those responsible for committing grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions to ensure justice and remedy for Palestinian victims, especially in light of the almost complete denial of justice for them before the Israeli judiciary.
      9. PCHR calls upon the international community to speed up the reconstruction process necessary because of the destruction inflicted by the Israeli offensive on Gaza.
      10. PCHR calls for a prompt intervention to compel the Israeli authorities to lift the closure that obstructs the freedom of movement of goods and 1.8 million civilians that experience unprecedented economic, social, political and cultural hardships due to collective punishment policies and retaliatory action against civilians.
      11. PCHR calls upon the European Union to apply human rights standards embedded in the EU-Israel Association Agreement and to respect its obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights when dealing with Israel.
      12. PCHR calls upon the international community, especially states that import Israeli weapons and military services, to meet their moral and legal responsibility not to allow Israel to use the offensive in Gaza to test new weapons and not accept training services based on the field experience in Gaza in order to avoid turning Palestinian civilians in Gaza into testing objects for Israeli weapons and military tactics.
      13. PCHR calls upon the parties to international human rights instruments, especially the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), to pressurize Israel to comply with its provisions in the oPt and to compel it to incorporate the human rights situation in the oPt in its reports submitted to the relevant committees.
      14. PCHR calls upon the EU and international human rights bodies to pressurize the Israeli forces to stop their attacks against Palestinian fishermen and farmers, mainly in the border area.

      Six raids israéliens sur la bande de Gaza
       
       

      Ziad Medoukh, mardi 27 juin 2017

      L’armée de l’occupation israélienne a blessé un palestinien  dans la bande de Gaza tôt ce mardi 27 juin  2017, lors des bombardements qui ont visé plusieurs régions dans cette prison à ciel ouvert.

      Les avions militaires israéliens ont mené six raids sur différents lieux dans la bande de Gaza.

      C’était dans les villes de Gaza , de Nussirat au Centre , et de Rafah au sud de la bande de Gaza.

      Les agressions israéliennes contre les civils palestiniens se poursuivent dans tous les territoires palestiniens .

      Ce bombardement s’ajoute aux différentes mesures atroces de l’occupation israélienne contre la population civile de cette région abandonnée : fermeture des passages, réduire l’électricité et interdire les malades de se soigner à l’étranger.

      Rien ne semble changer pour les Palestiniens de Gaza trois ans après la dernière offensive militaire israélienne de 2014: blocus, agressions, incursions, bombardements , morts, blessés et souffrance.

      Quelle honte de bombarder cette région sous blocus en pleine période de fête !

      Devant le silence complice de cette communauté internationale officielle.

      Et devant l’absence des médias qui occultent cette réalité.

      Gaza et la Cisjordanie défient l’occupation !

      La Palestine occupée résiste !

      La Palestine digne est plus que jamais déterminée !

      Gaza résiste, existe et vit !

      Gaza sous blocus patiente !

      Gaza la dignité garde toujours espoir !

      Gaza la déterminée continue de s’accrocher à la vie !

      Gaza l’agressée résiste, persiste et existe !

      La lutte continue !

      La Palestine vivra !

      La justice triomphera !

      Protest the darkening of Gaza!

       

       

      Protest vigils will continue as long as Gaza's electricity is cut off.

      Today, Friday June 23 we will stand at the Yad Morderchai Junction, north of the Gaza border. The protest vigil will go on between 10.00 - 13.00. You can come for all three hours, or for one hour>

      Contact: Erik Yellin, "The Other Voice" - +972-(0)54-4689001

      Previous message: Millions of Gaza residents face an unprecedented humanitarian disaster. We must not stand idly by!

      At the initiative of Zazim (“On the Move”), thousands of Israeli citizens signed a petition calling upon the government to avert the impending disaster and not to cut the supply of electricity to the Gaza Strip. Now we have decided to increase the pressure, so that our call will resonate with the decision makers in Israel and internationally.

      This evening, Monday June 19, we will gather near the Gaza border to launch into the air 150 sky lanterns (paper lanterns with candles). They would illuminate the sky in solidarity with the residents of darkened Gaza.

      We will meet today at 19:45 in the Big Fashion Ashdod parking lot, near the Ad Halom Junction, and from there we will proceed to the exact location for launching the sky lanterns.

      For further questions please contact

      Gil +972-(0)50-6995265, Raluca +972-(0)50-6314848

      We look forward to seeing you!

      Together we will light up the sky.

      B'Tselem Press Release - June 13, 2017

      The PA’s wrongful actions towards Gaza residents does not mean Israel can shirk its responsibility for their fate

      The Gaza Strip is in the throes of a humanitarian disaster. It is a crisis with severe, sometimes even fatal, consequences for the two million or so people living there. Without a regular power supply, all aspects of life are harmed; even the water and sewage systems are paralyzed, and untreated sewage flows straight into the Mediterranean. This reality is part of an Israeli policy, of the blockade Israel has imposed on Gaza for the past ten years, consigning its residents to living in abject poverty under practically inhuman conditions unparalleled in the modern world.

      Despite this intolerable reality, the Israeli cabinet has decided to accept the Palestinian Authority’s cruel plan to further reduce the power supply to Gaza. Should the Israeli decision be implemented, the situation in Gaza will deteriorate even further, making the area virtually unlivable.

      This is not some sort of natural disaster. Had that been the case, Israel would have likely sent in a humanitarian aid mission. Instead, the reality in Gaza is the result of Israel’s handiwork, achieved by its decade-long implementation of a brutal policy. Israel can, and must, change this reality.
