Summary

Israeli occupation Forces (IOF) continued their violations of human rights and international law in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) this week as PCHR documented 174 violations by IOF and Israeli settlers.

In terms of excessive use of force, IOF wounded 18 Palestinian civilians in the West Bank and the Gaza strip: 17 of them, including a child and a journalist were injured in separate incidents in the West Bank, while 1 civilian was injured the Gaza Strip. The Supreme National Authority of the Great March of Return cancelled the protests for the second week in row; consequently, no injuries were reported.

Under IOF incursions into the West Bank and house raids, 72 incursions into the West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem, were reported. Those incursions include raids of civilian houses and shootings, enticing fear among civilians, arresting and/or injuring many others. During this week’s incursions, 59 Palestinians were arrested, including 5 children and a girl.

In the Gaza Strip, IOF carried out a limited incursion in northern Gaza Strip and 9 shootings were documented in eastern Gaza; 6 shooting incidents were carried out against Palestinian fishing boats adjacent to the Gaza Strip. Moreover, a Palestinian civilian from the Gaza Strip was arrested while responding to a summons by Israeli authorities as he applied for an exit permit to accompany his sick brother in travel for treatment.

Under the settlement expansion activities in the West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem, PCHR documented 7 IOF violations, including demolition of residential houses as well as a demolition notice in Jerusalem and Hebron. IOF also demolished 2 horse-barracks and banned restoration of a dirt entrance in addition to an agricultural land in Bethlehem. PCHR also documented 14 settler-attacks on civilians and their properties, causing bruises and fracture to 9 civilians in addition to burning vehicles and cutting trees.

In terms of the Israeli closure policy, the Gaza Strip still suffers the worst closure in the History of the Israeli occupation of the oPt as it has entered the 14th consecutive year, without any improvement to the movement of persons and goods, aggravating the humanitarian conditions and bearing catastrophic consequences on all aspects of life. Meanwhile, the West Bank is divided into separate cantons with key roads blocked by the Israeli occupation since the Second Intifada and with temporary and permanent checkpoints, where civilians’ movement is restricted, and others are arrested.
