Press Releases - August 25, 2016

We did not expect anything less than Israel’s justification of war crimes during its last major military attack on Gaza, by clearing itself of all wrongdoing in an investigation conducted by its own colonial regime.  This highlights Israel’s attitude toward bombing civilian areas, United Nations buildings (including shelters), hospitals, and other structures protected under the Geneva Conventions.  As a result of the 50-day attack, Israel killed 487 children.  Yet, Israel has accepted no responsibility for its violent actions against civilians.

Marking 15 years of the Israeli closure of Palestinian National institutions in Occupied East Jerusalem

The continuous Israeli closure of the Palestinian institutions in Jerusalem, particularly the Orient House, reflects Israel’s will to negate Palestinian rights over the city and bury the two-state solution. For 15 years, Palestinians in our occupied capital have been deprived of their own institutions while the Israeli government, in full coordination with the Israeli Jerusalem Municipality, have continued to demolish Palestinian homes, evict Palestinian families, expand illegal Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem and make life miserable for our people in order to force them to leave.

PLO Secretary General Dr. Saeb Erekat on expansion of the illegal Gilo settlement

 

We strongly condemn the decision of the occupation authorities to advance plans to build 770 units in the illegal settlement of Gilo, built on lands of the Palestinian towns and villages of: Beit Jala, Beit Safafa and Wallajeh, between Bethlehem and Occupied East Jerusalem. This approval comes as Israel continues the construction of its Annexation Wall in the same area (Cremisan), as part of Israel’s settlement enterprise in the Occupied State of Palestine.
