jayyous

Occupation forces put Jayyous under curfew again Tuesday, following confrontations with village youth near the Wall. Soldiers detained one person and threatened to demolish several farms on the south side of the village.




The weekly Friday demonstration against the Apartheid Wall in Jayyous was once again met with intense repression from Occupation forces. For several hours, soldiers occupied the rooftops of two houses in the village and fired tear gas, rubber bullets and live bullets at the protesters below. At

least four people, including one pregnant woman, suffered injuries from tear gas inhalation.





The village of Jayyous mobilized this Friday for the weekly demonstration against the re-routing of the Wall through village land. Youth engaged with Occupation forces at the Wall and inside the village, and confrontations continued into the late afternoon. The village remains occupied following the burning of the outer fence this evening.




***image2***Last Friday I went to visit my family land behind the Wall, and to pick some olives for eating. During the way I had to wait for the gate to open, then wait to be checked and to go ahead. Everything after one year of building the Wall becomes a routine, but nothing is normal. More than 15,000 trees died behind the Wall in this area. More than 200 farmers lost their land and work. The amount of production reduced to the half in the past year. The time to reach land increased at least three times, and similarly for the distances. Which of these results looks normal?

Israeli Officials summoned the owners of the lands to meet today in the confiscated lands to review the orders. Israel intends to use the land to open a new settler road linking the illegal Israeli settlement of Karne Shamron to other settlement blocs inside the green line.

***image2***On February 12, 2004, the Occupation Administration officer headed towards the isolated house –Abu Shareb’s family- behind the wall in Jayyus village. The Occupation officer is there, for the third time at least, to order the family out of their home in yet another attempt to expel the family from their lands. Threatening that they are going to put barbed wires all around the house, the Occupation Forces would leave the family with only a narrow passage, which will also be surrounded by barbed wire.

The Wall passes through land, destroying, expelling and uprooting all that is good and replacing it with hatred, increasing people’s suffering and further distancing justice from reality, damaging all that comes in its way, whether human, tree, or wildlife. Omar Izzat is one witness to what disaster and loss means.




Displacement a word that reflects the unfortunate reality waiting for Palestinians, this word shapes the living reality of suffering and pain. Abu Amar is living this reality, the summary of his life best paints the picture.




On Tuesday October 6th, the Municipality of Jayyus, a village in the Qalqiliya district which is separated from 72% of its land by the Wall, sent out an appeal for support for residents’ to reach their land. There are two “access gates” in Jayyus which are claimed by the Israeli military to be for farmers to reach land on the “other side” of the Wall; however, the gates are a means by which Israel seeks to legitimize the Wall and confiscation of Palestinian land and intensify the humiliation which Palestinians suffer under all aspects of the Occupation.
