Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR): Weekly Report on Israeli Human Rights Violations in the Occupied Palestinian Territory

Summary for September 16 – 22, 2021
The Israeli occupation authorities continue to commit crimes and multi-layered violations against Palestinian civilians and their properties, including raids into Palestinian cities that are characterized with excessive use of force, assault, abuse, and attacks on civilians, turning the West Bank into isolated blocks of land. Israeli settlement expansion on Palestinian properties and land continued, as this week the occupation authorities confiscated 49,000 dunams of land from Bethlehem, allegedly for constructing a nature reserve.

The Israeli settlement expansion works continued on Palestinian lands and properties. Meanwhile, the Gaza Strip enters its 15th year under closure, exacerbating the humanitarian hardships across the territory.

Army shooting and violation of right to bodily integrity:

10 Palestinians were wounded, including a woman, and a journalist in army attacks across the West Bank. Three were recorded, including a woman, during an army assault on a protest in Hebron; another in Jerusalem; and 4 in a military incursion into Jenin. Another injury was reported in Salfit, and a journalist was wounded in Nablus.

In the Gaza Strip, Israeli Navy ships opened fire 6 times at fishing boats in the Gaza Sea, and the army fired twice on agricultural lands in eastern Gaza.

Army incursions and arrests of Palestinian civilians:

Israeli forces carried out 104 incursions into the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem. Those incursions included raids of civilian houses and shootings, enticing fear among civilians, and attacking many of them. During this week’s incursions, 49 Palestinians were arrested, including 14 children. Soldiers confiscated money from several homes during these raids.

In the Gaza Strip, the Israeli military conducted two limited incursions.

Demolitions:

PCHR fieldworkers documented 3 violations:

• Bethlehem: 49 thousand dunams of land confiscated in Kisan, allegedly for constructing a nature reserve
•Occupied East Jerusalem: Palestinian man forced to self-demolish his home in Jabel al-Mukaber.

• Hebron: generator confiscated in Yatta.

Israeli Settler-attacks:

• Occupied East Jerusalem: 2 Palestinian drivers assaulted; one stabbed in the back and the other was strangled.
• Bethlehem: settlement road constructed in Kisan.

• Nablus: assault on agricultural land and at least 10 fruitful olive trees were cut in Burin.

Israeli closure policy and restrictions on freedom of movement:

Israel imposed the closure of all Gaza Strip and West Bank crossings from 16 – 17 September 2021 for Yom Kippur.

The Israeli occupation authorities continued to ban the entry of dozens of goods, including construction materials, in collective punishment measures against the Gaza Strip as the Israeli closure imposed on the territory entered its 15th year, without an end in sight that would fulfil Palestinians’ right to enjoy their economic, social, and cultural rights.

Meanwhile, occupation authorities continued to divide the West Bank into separate cantons with key roads blocked by the Israeli occupation since the 2000 Second Intifada -still closed to this date- and with temporary and permanent checkpoints, where civilian movement is restricted, and they are subject to arrest, especially at al-Karama border crossing, alongside the Palestinian-Jordanian border.
