qatar-gaza-construction-worker[2]Under ‘administrative’ orders, a person’s house is destroyed within 24 hours

On Sunday, the Israeli occupation handed over an ‘administrative destruction notice’ to the owner of a six-flat building under construction in the Beit-Haneena neighbourhood in Jerusalem and detained three construction workers from the site.Staff of the Jerusalem Municipality claimed that the building is being built without a construction permit. Naji Hassouna, the owner of the building, which is still under construction, denied the claim and said that he had obtained permission two years ago.

Hassouna said that the destruction notice is “arbitrary and targeted”. “Proof of this is that initially, the municipality inspectors claimed the notice was issued as the contractor had failed to adhere to the permit’s conditions,” he said. “However, the court did not prove this last month.”

Witnesses at the site said that Israeli forces detained three construction workers working in the building.

Meanwhile, four other houses in Wadi al-Hilwa in the Selwan neighbourhood also received destruction notices. A member of staff from the Wadi al-Hilwa Information Centre, Ahmed al-Qaraeen, said that the Israeli police accompanied municipal staff when they handed over the notices.

Al-Qaraeen also affirmed that the notices are arbitrary. “The reason, he said, is that one of the four targeted buildings is owned by the Islamic Awqaf, was built before 1967 and no reconstruction or renovation works have taken place in it.”

According to the Wadi al-Hilwa Information Centre, the most dangerous destruction notices are ‘administrative’ orders under which a person’s house is destroyed within 24 hours.

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The by media displayed narrative of a bodycount – victims fallen by direct violence – does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which mostly stay undocumented. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does media display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting.

These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organizations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine.

For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
