Human rights report: occupation continues defying international resolutions

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– A Palestinian Human rights report warned of the Zionist ongoing and accelerated settlement projects in the occupied West Bank, and the occupation’s decision to resume construction work of the apartheid wall around the occupied city of Jerusalem.

The National Bureau for the Defense of Land and Resistance to Settlements considered, in its weekly report issued on Saturday, that the decision to resume the construction of the apartheid wall, that separates City of Jerusalem from its Palestinian environment and isolates the south of the occupied West Bank from its central and northern areas, represented a new defiance to the International Court of Justice.

It noted that the Zionist decision coincides with the eighth anniversary of the resolution issued by the International Tribunal in The Hague on the ninth of July 2004, which included a call to stop construction works of the wall and to dismantle it as it is illegal.

The National Bureau stated that the Zionist government approved since the beginning of this year a number of intensive settlement projects in occupied Jerusalem in an attempt to create new facts under the titles of “Alleged Temple” and “Temple Mount” replacing “Al Aqsa Mosque” and “the Church of the Holy Sepulchre” as religious symbols and landmarks in the city.

The report also revealed that the occupation authorities intend to implement a plan to establish a military academy on an area of ​​fourteen dunums on the Mount of Olives’ land in the east of Jerusalem, in addition to over three hundred new settlement units to expand “Talpiot”, “Abu Ghneim” and “Har Homa” settlements in the east and south of the city, as they announced last week.

The occupation authorities had also approved a plan to construct an elevator and underground tunnel connecting the “Jewish Quarter” in the Old City and al-Buraq Wall, to the west of Al-Aqsa Mosque, the report added.
