UPDATE : The closure of Hebron and Yatta.

On November 22, Operation Dove volunteers and a B’Tselem operator documented the closure of all the access roads to Al-Khalil (Hebron) except for the one of Beit Ummar.

Israeli army has also placed hundreds of physical obstacles in the form of concrete blocks, piles or dirt,  spike strips and trenches, which prevent access to and from Al Khalil (Hebron) where live around 200.000 Palestinians.

Movement restrictions were imposed again (link) as a collective punishment after four Israelis were killed in two separate attacks on both sides of the Green Line thursday afternoon.

This closure policy constitute the most severe restriction on movement of Palestinians living in this area. Despite freedom of movement is an inalienable human right, Israeli forces policy aims to deny it to Palestinians.

UPDATE: La chiusura di Hebron e Yatta

Il 22 novembre volontari di Operazione Colomba e un operatore di B’Tselem hanno documentato la chiusura di tutte le strade di accesso ad Hebron tranne quella che passa da Beit Ummar.

L’esercito israeliano ha inoltre collocato centinaia di ostacoli fisici come blocchi di cemento, mucchi di materiale di scarto e strisce chiodate che impediscono l’accesso da e per Hebron.

Le restrizioni di movimento sono state imposte un’altra volta ( link ) come punizione collettiva, dopoché che quattro israeliani sono morti (due a Tel Aviv e due nei Territori palestinesi Occupati) giovedì pomeriggio.

Questa politica di chiusura costituisce la più severa restrizione di movimento per i palestinesi che vivono in quest’area. Nonostante la libertà di movimento sia un diritto umano inalienabile, le forze israeliane stanno puntando a negarlo ai palestinesi.

On October 30, several Palestinians accompanied by some international volunteers harvested olives trees near the israeli illegal outpost of Bracha. Abu Suleyman, the head of the family, had to ask the Israeli District Coordination Committee (DCO) for permission to harvest his piece of land. As a result, Abu Suleyman got a 2 days permit to harvest his 100 owned olive (a family of 8 members can harvest an average of 5 trees per day). Despite the agreement, Israeli soldiers on site dictated a time limit to 2 pm but, at around 1 pm, they showed up again to order to Palestinians to finish their work quickly and to leave in 10 min.

Olive harvest is vital for the economic survival of countless Palestinian families and has become a political statement of resistance for Palestinians who don’t intend to leave their land.

Raccogliendo nella zona di Nablus

Il 30 ottobre diversi palestinesi e volontari internazionali hanno raccolto le olive nelle vicinanze dell’avamposto illegale di Bracha. Il proprietario, Abu Suleyman ha dovuto ottenere un permesso dall’amministrazione civile israeliana per raccogliere sul proprio campo. Come risultato ha ottenuto un permesso di due giorni per raccogliere dai suoi 100 alberi (in media un famiglia di 8 membri riesce a raccogliere da circa 5 piante al giorno). nonostante l’accordo concesso, i soldati sul posto hanno dato un limite orario massimo fino alle ore 14:00 , per poi ripresentarsi alle 13:00 ordinando ai palestinesi di finire in fretta e lasciare l’area in 10 minuti.

Il raccolto delle olive è vitale per il sostentamento economico di numerose famiglie palestinesi. E’ inoltre una rivendicazione politica di resistenza all’occupazione, perché dimostra la volontà dei palestinesi di rimanere sulle proprie terre.

PSCC Statement and Call to the International Solidarity Movement all over the world

ottobre 11, 2015 at 2:10 pm

10th October, 2015 | Popular Struggle Coordination Committee | Ramallah, Occupied Palestine

Hundreds of Palestinians were injured in the past ten days, around 450 arrests from all over the West bank were reported. Israeli settlers and occupation forces have murdered 17 Palestinians since the beginning of October 2015, including 5 children, eleven year old Abdelrahman Ebeidallah, fifteen year old Muhamad Hisham, sixteen year old Is-haq Badran, seventeen year old Amjad Hatem, and Huthayfa Sulayman age eighteen.
The roads are not safe for Palestinians. The settlers are armed with guns, knives, stones, and the support of the occupation forces-one of the most heavily armed militaries in the world- ready to shoot and kill Palestinians on our own land.
Jerusalemites do not feel safe walking in the streets. In the last week alone Palestinian women were beaten and thrown on the ground by Israeli settlers in the old city of Jerusalem, and at least one instance of this was captured on video.
The Israeli occupation forces not only protect the settlers and their illegal attacks on Palestinians, they also use different kinds of rubber and live bullets to maim Palestinians. In the last several days of attacks against Palestinians in the West bank, the injuries seen at Ramallah Hospital’s Emergency Room are on the arms, chests, and heads of Palestinian journalists, frontline defenders, and youth- these injuries indicates that the barrel of Israeli guns are aiming to kill.
Undercover occupation agents, the “mustaribeen”, with kaffiyah’s covering their faces wearing t-shirts tucked out of their pants to hide their guns, infiltrated a march held by students from Birzeit University. The mustaribeen got close to the Palestinian protesters, kidnapped three of the young men, after shooting them from a point of zero distance. Till the moment no one knows the destiny of the three kidnapped young men, with and assumption of the death of at least one of them according to eye witnesses.
The Israeli settlers and the occupation forces should be held accountable for their actions against the Palestinian people, and since the settlers, the army that serves them , and the occupation they exist within, are all protected by international impunity, regardless to the fact that the existence of the Israeli settlers within the 67 borders is considered illegal according to International Law . We call for the international community to organize demonstrations, and to take serious actions to support the international BDS campaign against Israel, and to put pressure over their governments to take actions towards the Israeli government and settlers’ violations.
in the time that Palestinian children, men, youth and women are all united in resisting the occupation, risking their lives in face to face encounters with the occupation army, demonstrating in Gaza City, Jerusalem, Haifa, Ramallah, Bethlehem, Yaffa, and Hebron. United from all over Palestine.
As long as the occupation continues, we will keep resisting for a life of freedom and dignity.
We the people need to scream out for Muhanad Halabi’s family who are threatened to have their house demolished at any minute, after having their son murdered. And it is not only Muhanad’s family who are mourning, thousands of people across Palestine are grieving the loss of loved ones murdered by the occupation.
We the people have a voice, that neither the Israeli government, Zionist entities, nor members of the international community complicit with Israel’s
crimes against Palestinians, can ever silence.
