UN OCHA: Increase in Israeli settler attacks in Occupied Palestine


Al Ray Agencies | Sept 23, 2013

Gaza, ALRAY- Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OCHA-OPT) has recorded at least ten settler-related incidents resulting in injury to Palestinians or damage to their property between 10-16 September 2013 OCHA.

In its ‘Protection of Civilians Weekly Report | 10 – 16 September 2013’, says this is an increase in incidents compared to a weekly average of four in the past three weeks, WAM reported.

OCHA is the part of the United Nations Secretariat responsible for bringing together humanitarian actors to ensure a coherent response to emergencies.

Large-scale demolitions in several locations; an entire community displaced On 16 September, the Israeli authorities demolished all residential and livelihood structures (except two fodder storage rooms and a solar panel) in the Bedouin community of Mak-hul in the Jordan Valley due to the lack of Israeli-issued building permits. The 58 structures, included ten residential tents, 28 animal shacks and pens, nine kitchens, nine latrines, a storage room and a zinc shade that was used as a kindergarten (which was partially demolished). Some of these structures were funded by international donors.

As a result, ten families comprising 48 people, including 16 children, were displaced.

In the course of the demolitions, a number of animal troughs and small water tanks as well as personal belongings were buried under the rubble.

OCHA says on 17 September, Israeli forces shot and killed a 19-year old Palestinian man during clashes that erupted in a search-and-arrest operation in Jenin refugee camp.

In Gaza Strip, while there was relative calm during the reporting period, with no reports of Israeli airstrikes or Palestinian rockets, incidents in the context of Israeli restrictions on Palestinian access to land and at sea continued.

On at least two occasions, Israeli forces stationed near the fence between Israel and the Gaza Strip opened warning fire at farmers, forcing them to leave their land. No injuries or damage to property were reported. Israeli forces also conducted three land-leveling operations.

On 12 September, a female Israeli settler was injured after Palestinians threw stones at her vehicle while travelling near Beit Ummar (Hebron).

Three Palestinian-plated vehicles sustained damage in two additional stone-throwing incidents perpetrated by settlers near Al Mughayyir village and Al Jalazun refugee camp (both in Ramallah).

Also on 10 September, a group of Israeli settlers slashed the tires of three Palestinian buses in Ath Thuri (Jerusalem) and sprayed “price-tag” graffiti on them.
