We are a grassroots movement uniting the struggle of the popular committees in the villages, refugee camps and cities struggling against the Wall and the settlements and the efforts of Palestinian civil society.
This week’s report highlights in particular the growing use of life bullets and serious injuries in protests against Israel’s occupation policies across the West Bank. Again almost sixty invasions have occurred in the West Bank while fishermen are still the main target of Israeli attacks on the people in Gaza.
This report gives a summary of growing colonization and ethnic cleansing and ongoing repression of Palestinian resistance during the first ten days of June. A particular increase in the use of 'flying' temporary checkpoints in order to disrupt Palestinian life is highlighted, along with 121 Israeli raids and operations in the West Bank.
Throughout May, Stop the Wall and the Land Defense Coalition have been working together to build resistance, support steadfastness and create information and awareness about Israel's ongoing policies of ethnic cleansing and colonization in the West Bank. May has been a month of heavy onslaught on the Palestinian people in the West Bank, with Israel advancing its expulsion plans in the South, East and the West of the West Bank. While grassroots organizing continues the enduring apathy of the international community is chilling.
This report gives a summary of growing colonization and ethnic cleansing during the month of May as well as the human rights violations enacted by the occupation authorities during this period in order to repress popular resistance and hinder journalists from reporting about the reality of Palestinian life under occupation and apartheid.
On May 5th 2015, the battle to save Susya was met with a fatal blow as Judge Noam Sohlberg of Israel’s High Court of Justice rejected a petition for an interim order that would freeze the implementation of demolition orders until the case is heard in court. As a result, Susya and its 340 residents face imminent demolition and expulsion to Area A. This unusual move, whereby no hearing and inquest was granted, alludes to the idea that Israel is looking to destroy the village totally in the near future.
"The popular movement to strengthen the resilience of the population in areas targeted by the Israeli Occupation Forces, and to build grassroots actions and international solidarity in order to confront the Israeli occupation, the settlement project and their implications."
