Summary

During the reporting period, PCHR documented 133 violations of the international human rights law and international humanitarian law (IHL) by Israeli forces and settlers in the occupied Palestinian territory.


Israeli forces killed a Palestinian civilian during the Great March of Return protests in eastern Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip. They also injured 81 others in the Gaza Strip and West Bank: 73 injuries, including 35 children, 3 women and a paramedic at the Great March of Return; and 8 injuries, including 2 children, during Israeli forces’ suppression of peaceful protests and incursions into residential neighbourhoods in the West Bank.


Israel carried out 71 incursions into the West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem, and raided civilian houses attacking and enticing fear among residents. Moreover, 62 Palestinians were arrested, including 3 children and a Member of the dissolved Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC).

Additionally, 4 incidents were documented by PCHR under expanded settlement activity as the Israeli forces destroyed the fronts of an under-construction building in Nablus and bulldozed 3 residential tents and livestock barns in the northern Jordan Valley. Furthermore, they confiscated 5 dunums from Sour Baher village in occupied Jerusalem and uprooted 80 fruitful olive trees in Salfit.

During the reporting period, the Israeli naval forces continued their attacks against the Palestinian fishermen and their equipment at sea though sailing within the allowed fishing area. This week witnessed 5 shooting and chasing incidents against the fishermen and their boats. Further, the Israeli forces opened fire twice in eastern Gaza Strip, where flare bombs fell on a house in eastern Deir al-Balah. No casualties were reported.

It should be highlighted that Israel continues its closure policy on the Gaza Strip for the 13th consecutive year, severely restricting the freedom of movement of persons and goods and isolating the Gaza Strip from the West Bank and the rest of the world. Meanwhile, the West Bank is divided into separate cantons with key roads blocked by the Israeli occupation and with temporary and permanent checkpoints. During this week, 44 temporary military checkpoints were erected, and 4 Palestinian civilians were arrested there.
