lethal force, the IOF killed 1 Palestinian civilian suffering from epilepsy
near the border fence, east of Wadi Gaza village, in the central Gaza Strip.  According to investigations conducted by PCHR,
the IOF used excessive force against the Palestinian and did not attempt to
arrest him first, especially as he was not a military man, but in civilian
clothing. 

 

On 24 October 2012, 2 Palestinian resistance members were killed
when an Israeli warplane launched a missile at them, as they were launching
missiles at Israeli towns from a farming land behind the Tareq Abu al-Hsein

On the same day, a Palestinian policeman was injured when an
Israeli warplane launched a missile at the southern entrance of the Customs
checkpoint "44" belonging to the Gaza Ministry of Interior, 1700
meters to the south of the Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing.  The missile was launched almost at the time
of opening the crossing, when the Palestinian security officers were getting
ready to receive Palestinians traveling from Gaza to Israel.  The policeman’s wounds were serious.  As a result of the attack, the eastern
electricity network supplying the Gaza Strip with power was damaged.  In addition, damage was caused to containers
used as offices of the Palestinian Security Service.  Shrapnel made holes in these 6 offices.

 

On 02 November 2012, a Palestinian resistance member was injured
when the IOF positioned at the border fence launched artillery shells at a
Palestinian resistance group.  This group
was in a farming land, east of the Wadi Gaza village (Johr al-Deek) in the east

Measures
to Create Jewish Majority in Occupied East Jerusalem

In
the context of demolishing houses, during the reporting period, the IOF
demolished 2 houses; the first is in al-Salam suburb, northeast of East
Jerusalem and the second is in al-Zaytoun Mountain "al-Tour neighborhood,"
east of the Old Town.

 

On
01 November 2012, the IOF demolished a house belonging to the family of Sleem
Isma’il al-Shawamrah (54), in al-Salam suburb, northeast of Jerusalem.  The house was demolished for the 6th
time respectively.  Al-Shawamrah said
that the IOF surrounded his house built on 115 square meters and started
demolishing without any previous notice.  He added that his house was first demolished
in 1998, while the last time was in 23 January 2012.  He rebuilt his house in July 2012 with the
assistance of the International Coalition, which consists of 10 countries, and
the Israeli ICAD Foundation.  Yet, the IOF
re-demolished the house again after less than 3 months.  He said that it was the 6th time
that his house was demolished.  

 

On
05 November 2012, the IOF demolished a house belonging to the family of Imad
Abu Laban in al-Tour neighborhood.  The
1-storey, tin-roofed house was built on an area of 232 square meters and
consisted of a room, a kitchen and a bathroom.  Abu Laban said that the Israeli Municipality
had previously submitted to him a notice to demolish his house under the
pretext that it was built on agricultural land without obtaining a construction
permit.  The IOF demolished all the house
facilities around, including walls, and uprooted fruitful trees, in addition to
water tanks and electricity safety switches.  

 

In
the context of settlement expansion projects, on 05 November 2012, the Israeli
Ministry of Housing issued construction tenders of 1,200 new housing units at the
"Pisgat Ze’ev" and "Ramot" settlements in East Jerusalem.  According to what was posted by the Israeli
radio website "Reshet Bet," the Israeli Ministry of Housing offered
these tenders to contractors in Israel in order to start these projects.  The Ministry pointed out that project of
building 1,200 housing units in the 2 aforementioned settlements in East
Jerusalem was approved months ago.    

 

Restrictions
on Movement:

 

Israel
continued to impose a tightened 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 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. 
Recently-declared measures to ease the closure are vague, purely
cosmetic and fail to deal with the root causes of the crisis; the root causes
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.  Palestinians in Gaza may no
longer suffer from the same shortage of goods but, as long as the closure is
allowed to continue, they will remain economically dependent, unable to care
for themselves, and socially, culturally and academically isolated from the
rest of the world. 

 

The 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.

 

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.

 

On 24 October 2012, the IOF bulldozed a tin-made barrack in the Beit
Alban area, west of the Ethna village in the west of Hebron.  The barrack built on 2,250 square meters was
bulldozed without any previous notice of demolition or suspension of work in
the facility, according to the testimony of the barrack’s owner, Abdul Rahman
Abed Ahmed al-Tmeisi (33), given to PCHR’s fieldworker. 

 

On the same day, the IOF submitted notices to demolish 7 houses in
Khellet Theeb area, west of the Ethna village in the West of Hebron.  It should be noted that these notices were
issued by (the Civil Administration – the Supreme Planning Council) under the
name of suspension of construction works and demolition of houses under the
pretext of not obtaining permits.  The IOF
had informed the Palestinians of the decision to stop construction works in the
area and refer to the concerned departments within maximum 7 days.  Palestinians said to PCHR’s fieldworker that
they headed to the Israeli courts through the "St. Yves" Foundation.  The case was adjourned 21 days after a hearing
was held on 31 October 2012 to complete the documents needed for the case.

 

On 31 October 2012, the IOF demolished 2 houses in Steih lands near
al-Dyouk al-Tahta village, northwest of Jericho.  The 2 houses are resided in by their owners
in the wintertime.  They were demolished
under the pretext of not obtaining construction permits from the Israeli
"Civil Administration.  The IOF also
demolished the fences of the 2 houses and electricity networks in the area. 

 

In the same context, on 01 November 2012, the IOF orally informed
the residents of al-Fkheet and al-Tabban villages, east of Yatta in the south
of Hebron, of a decision to demolish solar power boards that supply the east of
Yatta with power, in addition to al-Musafer elementary school, within a maximum
of 3 days.

 

In the context of settlement expansion projects, on 05 November
2012, the Israeli Ministry of Housing issued tenders to build 70 housing units
in the "Ariel" settlement, north of Salfit in the northern Gaza
Strip.  According to the Israeli radio
website "Reshet Bet," the Ministry issued these tenders to
contractors in Israel to start the project.

 

On 04 November 2012, the IOF with the company of Israeli settlers
started leveling lands that were previously annexed to a settlement outpost
established in the east of Yatta, south of Hebron.  The settlers set caravans in the area.

 

On 06 November 2012, the IOF demolished a 2-storey house belonging
to the family of Mohammed Mosa Makhamra (50).   The house was built on 250 square meters,
east of Yatta.  They also demolished a
stockyard belonging to Hosni Mohammed Salam Rab’i, in addition to a tin-made
room built on 50 square meters and a water well belonging to Mahmoud Mohammed
Nasser (43).

 

On 07 November 2012, the IOF demolished 2 houses in the Hares
village, northwest of Salfit.  One of
them belongs to Ali Hussein Jaber and consists of 2 attached apartments of 300
meters; one of which was still under construction.  The other 2-storey house belongs to Hammam
Yusef Salam.

 

In the same context, on 27 October 2012, 7 Israeli settlers from the
"Nirya" settlement outpost, northwest of Ramallah, attacked
Palestinian farmers while they were collecting olives in their lands in al-Nabi
‘Enaiyir area.

 

On the same day, a group of settlers from the "Nhalial"
settlement, northwest of Ramallah, cut down 20 olive trees in al-Safha area.  The trees belong to Ibrahim ‘Ayesh Abdul
Rahman Ladadwa.

 

On 31 October 2012, Hala Hesham Abu ‘Ayyah (13) sustained bruises
and fractures throughout her body, as a settler hit her on the main road at the
entrance of the Beit Ummar village.  The
child was transported to al-Ahli Hospital in Hebron by a PRCS ambulance.  The setter fled without offering any help to
the child or calling an ambulance.

 

On 03 November 2012, a group of settlers accompanied by Israeli
soldiers from the "Ytzhar" settlement, southeast of Nablus, attacked
Palestinian farmers, who were collecting olives in the vicinity of the ‘Oureef
High School for Boys, and threw stones at them.  As a result, Waleed Sa’id Najeh al-Safadi (18)
was hit by a stone in the head.  The IOF
arrested al-Safadi’s uncle, Isam Najeh Sharif al-Safadi (37), an officer in the
Palestinian Intelligence Service.

2- Use

During

by Palestinian civilians and international and Israeli human rights defenders
in protest at the construction of the wall and settlement activities in the
West Bank.  As a result, an Israeli human
rights defender and a Palestinian child were wounded, and dozens of
demonstrators suffered from tear gas inhalation. 

 

Following the Friday Prayer, 19 October 2012, dozens of Palestinian
civilians and international and Israeli human rights defenders organized a
peaceful demonstration in Bil’ein village, west of Ramallah, in protest to the
construction of the annexation wall.  The
demonstrators gathered in the streets of the village, chanting slogans calling
for national unity.  The protesters aimed to stress the need to adhere to
national principles and the right of return, to resist the occupation and to
call for the release of all Palestinian prisoners.  The protesters raised
Palestinian flags and made their way towards the wall.  They called
through megaphones for Israeli settlers in “Mitityahu” settlement to leave
Palestinian land.  Israeli soldiers stationed in the area fired
rubber-coated metal bullets, sound bombs and tear gas canisters at the
demonstrators.  As a result, a number of
demonstrators suffered from tear gas inhalation and others sustained bruises; the
wounded were treated in the field.

 

Also following the Friday Prayer on 19 October 2012, dozens of
Palestinian civilians and international and Israeli human rights defenders
organized a peaceful demonstration in Ne’lin village, west of Ramallah, in
protest at the construction of the annexation wall and settlement activities.  The demonstrators moved towards areas of the

soldiers stationed in the area fired rubber-coated metal bullets, sound bombs
and tear gas canisters at the demonstrators. 
As a result, some demonstrators suffered from tear gas inhalation and
others sustained bruises; the wounded were treated in the field. 

 

Around the same time that Friday, dozens of Palestinian civilians
and Israeli and international human rights defenders gathered in Martyrs
Square in Nabi Saleh village, northwest of Ramallah, to hold a weekly peaceful
protest against the construction of the annexation wall and settlement
activities.  The protesters walked
towards the gate erected by IOF near the entrance of the village, which lead to
Palestinian lands that Israeli settlers from the nearby "Halmish"
settlement are trying to seize.  Israeli
soldiers, who had been extensively deployed in the area and near all the
entrances of the village since the morning, began to confront the protesters
who wanted to walk towards the affected lands. 
Israeli soldiers fired live and rubber-coated bullets, sound bombs and
tear gas canisters at the protesters.  As
a result, some demonstrators suffered from tear gas inhalation and others
sustained bruises.

 

Following the Friday Prayer, Palestinian civilians and
international human rights defenders, including Ms. Luisa Morgantini, former
Vice Speaker of the European Parliament, organized a peaceful demonstration in
the center of al-Ma’sara village, south of Bethlehem, in protest at the ongoing

the protestors moved towards the gate of the village, IOF closed it to prevent
the demonstration from gaining access to the confiscated lands.  In his testimony to a PCHR fieldworker, Jawad
Alaadin, a member of the Public Movement in Bethlehem, said, "IOF stopped
the crowd from reaching the lands threatened with confiscation.  IOF soldiers and demonstrators engaged in a
skirmish after IOF closed the main road."

 

 

3- Continued Closure of the oPt

 

Israel has continued to impose a tightened closure on the oPt,
imposing 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 nearly 5 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 IOF
have tightened the closure of the Gaza Strip, making Karm Abu Salem crossing the
sole commercial crossing of the Gaza Strip, although it is not suitable for
commercial purposes, in terms of its distance and operational capacity. 

 

The IOF
have continued to apply their policy aimed at tightening the strangulation of
the commercial movement in the Gaza Strip, including imposing total control
over the flow of imports and exports. 

 

The
total closure of al-Mentar "Karni" crossing on 02 March 2011 has
created a terrible situation that has seriously affected the Gaza Strip.  Following this closure, all economic and commercial
establishments in Gaza Commercial Zone were shut off.  It should be noted that al-Mentar crossing is
the biggest crossing in the Gaza Strip, in terms of its operational capacity to
absorb the flow of imports and exports.  The
decision to close al-Mentar crossing was the culmination of a series of
decisions resulting in the complete closure of the Sofa crossing, east of the
Gaza Strip in the beginning of 2009, and the Nahal Oz crossing, east of Gaza
City, which was dedicated for the delivery of fuel and cooking gas to the Gaza
Strip, in the beginning of 2010. 

 

The IOF
have continued to impose a total ban on the delivery of raw materials to the
Gaza Strip, except for very limited items and quantities.  The limited quantities of raw materials allowed
into Gaza do
not meet the minimal needs of the civilian population in the Gaza Strip. 

 

The
cooking gas crisis, which erupted last November, has continued to affect the
Gaza Strip.  This crisis was created on
04 January 2010, when Israeli occupation authorities totally closed the Nahal
Oz crossing, which used to be dedicated to the delivery of fuel and cooking gas
supplies to Gaza.  They shifted fuel and
cooking gas supplies to the Karm Abu Salem crossing, which is not equipped to
receive Gaza’s fuel needs.  The Karm Abu
Salem crossing, with its maximum absorptive capacity, can receive only 200 tons
of cooking gas per day. 

 

Approximately
80% of Gaza civilians continue to depend on humanitarian aid provided by UNRWA
and other relief agencies, the number of families who are living below the
poverty line has continued to increase, and approximately 40% of Gaza’s
manpower continues to suffer from permanent unemployment as a result of
shutting down the majority of Gaza’s economic establishments. 

 

The IOF
have continued to impose a total ban on the export of products from Gaza,
especially industrial products, undermining any real chance of reopening economic
establishments.  The situation has been
aggravated since the Karm Abu Salem crossing was designated as Gaza’s sole
commercial crossing; the repeated closure of this crossing negatively affects
the quantity of Gaza products which are allowed to be exported.  

 

For approximately 6 consecutive years, the IOF have continued to
ban the delivery of construction materials to Gaza.  During the reporting period, the IOF approved
the delivery of limited quantities of construction materials for a number of
international organizations.

 

Israel has continued to close the Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing for
Palestinian civilians from the Gaza Strip. 
The IOF only allow the movement of limited groups amidst severe
restrictions, including long hours of waiting in the majority of cases.  The IOF have also continued to adopt a policy
aimed at reducing the number of Palestinian patients allowed to move via the
Beit Hanoun crossing to receive medical treatment in hospitals in Israel or in
the West Bank and Jerusalem.  The IOF
denied new categories of Gazan patients permission to access hospitals via the
crossing.   

 

Israel has imposed additional access restrictions on traders,
international diplomats, journalists and humanitarian workers seeking to enter
the Gaza Strip.

Bulldozing
of Houses

 

In morning hours on Thursday, 01
November 2012, an IOF force of the Border Guards, Israeli Police, Special
Forces and the Police Chivalry Units, accompanied by a bulldozer and officers
of the Israeli Municipality in Jerusalem, stormed al-Salam suburb in the ‘Anata
village, northeast of Occupied Jerusalem. 
The IOF surrounded Salim Ismail al-Shawamra‘s (54) house and
started bulldozing it 6 consecutive times, without previously
warning or issuing a demolition notice. 
In his testimony to PCHR’s fieldworker, al-Shawamra said that the IOF
surrounded the 115-square-meter house and started bulldozing it without
previously warning them.  He also added
that his house had been demolished 6 times, the first demolition was in 1998
and the most recent demolition was on 23 January 2012.  The house was rebuilt in July 2012, with the
help of members of the International Coalition, which includes more than 10
countries, and the Israeli foundation "iCAD," only to be destroyed
again by the IOF in less than 3 months. 
Al-Shawamra also noted that he owns the land, and that this area is
under Palestinian jurisdiction according to the Oslo Accords.  Al-Shawamra is a holder of a Jerusalemite ID
and a father of 9 children, the youngest of whom is 10 years old. 

 

On 05 November 2012, the IOF
bulldozed a house in the al-Zaitoun mountain, al-Tour neighborhood, east of the
old town of occupied Jerusalem. 
According to PCHR’s investigations, a force of Israeli Border Guards,
Israeli Police, Special Forces and Police Chivalry Units, accompanied by a
bulldozer and officers of the Israeli Municipality in Jerusalem, stormed
al-Sahel area in the al-Zaitoun mountain, al-Tour neighborhood, east of the old
town of occupied Jerusalem.  The IOF
surrounded the house of Imad Mahmoud Abu-Laban, a one-story, tin-roofed,
brick house, established on a 32 square meters area, right after he and his
wife left for work.  Upon learning of the
demolition decision, the neighbors ran to the house and tried to save some of
Abu-Laban’s possessions.  Abu Laban said
that the IOF had submitted him a demolition notice, under the pretext that the
house is established on agricultural land, as well as being built without a permit;
moreover, they destroyed all the utilities around the house.  He also added that he had built his humble
house on a small piece of land which he owns, and he lives in it with his
wife.  He also explained that the
demolition notice was for the house, which is established on part of a farmland,
planted with fruitful trees, belonging to him. 
The IOF destroyed the house, the walls surrounding it, uprooted the
fruitful trees, destroyed the water tanks and the electricity safety switch.

international humanitarian law, and Israeli settlers have continued to attack
Palestinian civilians and property.

 

At

issued by the Civil Administration, the Supreme Planning Council, approving the
suspension and demolition notices under pretext of not obtaining a permit.  The IOF had previously informed the civilians
that construction in the area was suspended and that they ought to refer to the
concerned departments for a maximum period of 7 days.  According to the civilians’ testimony to PCHR’s
fieldworker, they are headed to the Israeli courts through the Saint Eve

settlement outpost, established on the northern lands of Ras Karkar, northwest
of Ramallah, attacked Palestinian farmers harvesting olive trees in their land
in al-Nabi ‘Anieer area, approximately 500 meters away from the settlement
outpost.  In his testimony to a PCHR
fieldworker, Jum’aa Barakat Dorgham Nofal, said that, at approximately 11:00 on

firearm, accompanied by a sniffer dog, between 20 and 30 years of age, attacked
Dorgham Nofal (51) and Fayq Tawfiq’s family with rocks.  A group of the farmers present in the area
protected the attacked farmers and threw rocks back at the fleeing settlers.  Approximately half an hour later, an IOF force
came to the area, however, they withdrew later; no arrests or injuries were
reported.

village, northwest of
Ramallah, cut the branches of 20 fruitful olive trees in al-Safha area, east of
the village, belonging to Ibrahim ‘Aiysh
Abdul-Rahman Ladadwa
, in his 10 dunnums of land.  According to PCHR’s investigations, Mr
Ladadwa, from the al-Mazra’a al-Badwia village, was shocked to find that the
branches of 20 fruitful olive trees, planted 40 to 50 years ago, were cut.

 

At

officer of the Israeli Civil Administration, accompanied by military vehicles
and 2 bulldozers, stormed the Satih area, near al-Dayouk al-Tahta village,
northwest of Jericho.  The IOF closed the
area, banning civilians and journalists from entering.  At approximately 07:00, the bulldozers,
without previous notice, started demolishing 2 houses, used by their owners in
the winter, under the pretext of not obtaining a construction permit from the
Israeli Civil Administration.  They also
demolished the walls around the houses, and destroyed the power network in the
area. The demolished houses belong to:

 

1- Eng. Sayel Ibrahim Mo’tan, a one-story house established on a
120 square meters area.

been expanded by the civilians, as they added two classrooms to absorb 20
students 3 months ago, and that the civilians were ordered to stop the
construction at the time.  It should also
be mentioned that the IOF is imposing severe restrictions and harassing the
civilians in order to push them to leave the area, as villages in the east of
Yatta are in zone (C), which falls under Israeli jurisdiction according to the
Oslo Accords, thus they are subjected to IOF raids and demolition notices
regularly.

settlers who were accompanied by an IOF force, who intervened to protect the
settlers, firing tear gas canisters, sound bombs and rubber-bullets at the
farmers.  The IOF arrested Issam Najeh

tenders to build 70 housing units in the "Ariel" settlement, north of
Selfit, in the northern side of the West Bank.

testimony to a PCHR fieldworker, Rateb el Jabour, coordinator of the Popular
Movement against the Settlement Activity, said that the IOF bulldozed the
house, the stockyard and the well without giving any previous warning or
notices to stop construction work in the area, adding that the IOF does these
actions in order to push the civilians away from the area, as it is classified
as a military zone belonging to the IOF and banned for civilians.  Before its withdrawal, the IOF submitted 12
civilians demolition notices for houses and facilities, the notified civilians
are: Mohammad Ahmed Ali Hassanin; Moussa
Abu-‘Aram; Mohammad ‘Ouda Abd-Raboh; Ziad Mohammad Younis Mkhamra; Ahmed Ismail

Recommendations to the International
Community

 

 

1. PCHR calls upon
the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention to fulfill their
legal and moral obligations under Article 1 of the Convention to ensure Israel‘s respect for the Convention in the Occupied Palestinian
Territory.  PCHR believes that the
conspiracy of silence practiced by the international community has encouraged
Israel to act as if it is above the law and encourages Israel continue to
violate international human rights and humanitarian law.

 

2. PCHR calls upon
the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention to convene a
conference to take effective steps to ensure Israel’s respect of the Convention
in the OPT and to provide immediate protection for Palestinian civilians.

 

3. PCHR calls upon
the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention to comply with
their legal obligations detailed in Article 146 of the Convention to search for
and prosecute those responsible for grave breaches, namely war crimes.

 

4. PCHR calls for
the immediate implementation of the Advisory Opinion issued by the
International Court of Justice, which considers the construction of the
Annexation Wall inside the West Bank illegal.

 

5. PCHR recommends
that international civil society organizations, including human rights
organizations, bar associations and NGOs, participate in the process of
exposing those accused of grave breaches of international law and urge their
governments to bring the perpetrators to justice. 

 

6. PCHR calls upon
the European Union to activate Article 2 of the Euro-Israel Association
Agreement, which provides that Israel
must respect human rights as a precondition for economic cooperation between
the EU states and Israel.  PCHR further
calls upon the EU states to prohibit import of goods produced in illegal
Israeli settlements in the OPT. 

 

7. PCHR calls on
the international community to recognize the Gaza disengagement plan, which was
implemented in September 2005, for what it is – not an end to occupation but a
compounding of the occupation and the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip. 

 

8. In recognition
of ICRC as the guardian of the Fourth Geneva Convention, PCHR calls upon the
ICRC to increase its staff and activities in the OPT, including the
facilitation of family visitations to Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

 

9. PCHR
appreciates the efforts of international civil society, including human rights
organizations, bar associations, unions and NGOs, and urges them to continue
their role in pressuring their governments to secure Israel’s respect for human
rights in the OPT and to demand Israel end its attacks on Palestinian
civilians.

 

10. PCHR calls upon the international community to pressure Israel
to lift the severe restrictions imposed by the Israeli government and its
occupation forces on access for international organizations to the OPT.

 

11. PCHR reiterates that any political settlement not based on
international human rights law and humanitarian law cannot lead to a peaceful
and just solution of the Palestinian question. 
Rather, such an arrangement can only lead to further suffering and
instability in the region.  Any peace
process or agreement must be based on respect for international law, including
international human rights and humanitarian law.
