The Apartheid Wall

In July 2004, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) issued its verdict on the 'Legal Consequences of the Construction of a Wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territory' and declared this construction illegal, choosing to refer to it as a "wall". 

The maps show the ongoing colonization of Palestine from before 1948 to the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip to the Apartheid Wall, which is Israel’s current attempt to force the Palestinian people into Bantustans.

30 August 2015. Sunday protest in Beit Jala was violently repressed by the Israeli Occupation Forces with tear gas and sound bombs, dispersing the demonstrators and arresting two Palestinians.

Hundreds of people gathered for the mass mobilization Sunday morning. The protest tore down one of the gates of the Israeli apartheid infrastructure that segregates the Palestinian people from their lands and from each other. 

The Popular committee of Beit Jala together with the Stop the Wall Campaign, the Popular Struggle Coordinating Committee and the Palestinian National Forces call for a mass protest against the construction of the Apartheid Wall, land grab and destruction of property in Cremisan Valley. The demonstration will take place on Sunday 23rd August at 11:00 a.m.

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 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.

 

The Land Defense Coalition, 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, has prepared a small brochure. The brochure presents the Coalition, its member organizations, its work and political analysis.

 

Stop the Wall has published a new briefing on EU funding for Elbit Systems. This briefing follows the announcement by Israel that the EU has already approved 205 projects with Israeli participation within the framework of the EU research cycle Horizon2020.

 

In occasion of the 10th anniversary of the decision of the International Court of Justice on the legal consequences of Israel's construction of the Apartheid Wall, al Haq has developed a new interactive map on the Wall.

Dozens of Palestinian activists crossed Israel's illegal apartheid wall in the West Bank on Friday near the Qalandiya checkpoint as part of a series of protest actions to demonstrate solidarity with Jerusalem.

Activists used makeshift ramps and ladders and cut through barbed wire to climb over the apartheid wall near Qalandiya military checkpoint, which is at least six meters in height.

The action was part of a campaign entitled #On2Jerusalem that was organized by the Popular Resistance Committees.

Since the beginning of the massacre in Gaza on July 7th 2014, all eyes of the international media are focused on this Israeli military aggression. But also in the West Bank resistance and repression has increased: the clashes between Palestinian activists and the Israeli military on the checkpoints have escalated during this time. Palestinians in the West Bank mobilized in solidarity with the people in Gaza in daily acts of resistance while the Israeli military took advantage of the focus on Gaza to kill, repress, arrest and further expand their settlements.
