Wave of administrative demolitions strikes East Jerusalem & West Bank

2 Comments 22 January 2015

PRESS RELEASE | JANUARY 22 2015
 
 
The last two days have seen homes and buildings demolished in five Palestinian villages and neighborhoods within Area C of the Occupied Territories or East Jerusalem. To boot,  five houses and nine agricultural structures were demolished today in the Palestinian village Jiftlik, while additional demolitions occurred in Beit Iksa.

Authorities demolish 9 structures in Khirbet Ar-Rahwa in the South Hebron Hills

No Comments 07 September 2014

The following update on demolitions in Khirbet ar-Rahma comes Operation Dove, an Italian NGO that focuses on the South Hebron Hills.

Khirbet ar-Rahma is a small and poor Palestinian village in Area C of the Occupied Territories. Since its location in Area C means it is under full Israeli control, the villagers are subjected to the Israeli military planning system that blocks almost every Palestinian attempt at building and developing within their village. Whatever is built,  is demolished every now and again, as demonstrated by this most recent demolition.  In the background of the photos, please note the  new Jewish settlement, some of  which is illegal by the Israeli law,  but nevertheless is permitted to stay intact. This is an example of institutionalized discrimination, and demonstrates why RHR and partners* submitted an appeal to the High Court of Justice to return planning authority to the Palestinian hands for their own communities in Area C.  Continue Reading
