Palestinian teenager shot dead at Israeli military checkpoint in alleged stabbing attempt. 20 August 2017 | Israeli border police shot and killed a Palestinian teenager at Israel's Zaatara military checkpoint in the West Bank on the afternoon of 19 August. Initial reports suggested that an Israeli soldier was slightly injured after being stabbed by the youngster but it was later revealed that it was a border police officer that had, in fact, been wounded by 'friendly' fire. The youth shot dead by Israeli forces was identified as Qutayba Ziad Zahran from Illar village in the Tulkarem district. Zahran was the fifty-fourth Palestinian to be killed by Israelis since the start of the year, 13 of whom were killed over a two-week period in July. Although Israeli forces have claimed that Palestinians were allegedly attempting to carry out attacks in a majority of instances when Palestinians were killed, rights groups have disputed Israel's version of events and argued that many alleged attackers could have been subdued in a non-lethal manner. Palestinians have had to live for nearly half a century with the daily frustrations of lack of freedom of movement and constant Israeli military violence. https://www.maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=778752

Palestinian found dead in Sweden, as rumours circulate of Mossad involvement. 23 August 2017 | After a Palestinian man was found shot dead in the Swedish town of Limmared on Saturday, unconfirmed reports have emerged that the killing was an assassination carried about by Israeli Intelligence. Muhammad Tahsin al-Buzm, a former resident of the Gaza Strip, was reportedly shot in the head and neck at close range inside his apartment. He had departed from the Gaza Strip for Sweden with his wife in 2008 following Israel's 'Operation Cast Lead', during which his brother was killed. A statement released by Swedish police on Sunday, cited in Israeli media only, said that “reports said several people wearing masks entered the apartment through a balcony and shot the man inside. They disappeared after the shooting as quickly as they arrived.” Buzm joins a long list of Palestinians whose deaths have been attributed to assassinations by Mossad. Other notable assassinations of Palestinians associated with Mossad include senior Hezbollah operative, Imad Mughniyeh, who was blown up in Damascus in 2008 and Hassan al-Laqqis, head of Hezbollah’s technological apparatus, who was killed in Beirut in 2013. Tunisian aviation engineer, Muhammad al-Zouari, was believed to have been assassinated by Israel last December. https://www.maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=778810

5-year-old Palestinian dies from toxic encephalopathy after visiting Gaza beach. Mohammed Salim Al-Sayis (5) from the al-Zaytoun neighbourhood in Gaza City died on Saturday, 29 July 2017, at around 2 am. He was diagnosed with Ekiri syndrome, which caused lethal toxic encephalopathy. On 19 July Mohammed and his siblings swam in areas close to Ash-Shaikh Ejleen and the next day, showing symptoms of illness, they were rushed to the hospital. “Because of the electricity blackouts and heat, I decided to take my children to the beach”, said Salim Al-Sayis, Mohammed’s father, in a statement to Al Mezan’s field worker. “Our children swam in the sea and played on the beach. After we returned home, some of my family members started feeling very sick — at around 2am. Mohammed was admitted to the Al Dorra Paediatrics Hospital and later placed in the Intensive Care Unit, where doctors confirmed that he was suffering from Ekiri syndrome, which results in brain oedema. The hospital produced a diagnostic report and tried to request an urgent referral for Mohammed to a hospital outside Gaza. Mohammed’s father says: “I went to the Department for Treatment Abroad in Gaza City to request financial coverage for my son’s hospitalisation. I provided all of the required documents, including the diagnostic report and the doctors’ recommendation for referral. I was asked to wait for an hour for the decision to be made by the responsible staff at the Ministry of Health in Ramallah. However, no matter how many times I asked, I was constantly told that no decision had been made or communicated. For a whole week, I kept trying to secure the referral to cover Mohammed’s medical treatment outside Gaza, and I sought the help of different figures to speed up the decision at the Ministry of Health in Ramallah to approve our request. Nevertheless, no approval was granted.” Mohammed was then re-admitted to the Intensive Care Unit as his condition continued to deteriorate. He died at 2am on 29 July. Al Mezan reminds local and international actors that a breadth of issues make up the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, and include the desperate lack of electricity since April 2017 and severe levels of water pollution. These conditions leave Palestinians in Gaza deprived of access to basic rights, to the extent that it has an impact on the dignity of the population. Immediate solutions to these problems must be implemented in order to avoid similar deaths. The Al Mezan Centre for Human Rights has called on the Palestinian Minister of Health to investigate the delay in the urgent medical referral of Mohammed Al-Rayis for life-saving treatment outside of Gaza. Al Mezan states: “Both Palestinian and international actors must overcome political divisions and take serious and immediate steps to seek an end to this crisis, which impacts, in particular, on patients in need of medical access. Within the context of the intra-Palestinian political divide, Al Mezan warns against the use of the population’s basic rights and services as tools to further political agendas. Al Mezan also urges the international community to assert the human rights of the Palestinian population, and to respond to the pressing needs of the health sector in the Gaza Strip, including by seeking an end to the electricity crisis and reminding all actors that finding solutions to these problems is more efficient and effective than managing their catastrophic consequences.” http://www.mezan.org/en/post/22030/Suspected+Cause+of+Death+of+Child+is+Sea+Pollution+and+Delayed+Medical+Referral

136 settlers raid Al Aqsa. 24 August 2017 | Dozens of militant Israeli settlers raided the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, accompanied by Israeli police, on Wednesday. In the early hours of the morning, when the Magharaba Gate was opened, Israeli Occupation forces were deployed in the mosque courtyards. Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi Yehuda Glick performed Talmudic rituals in front of the Qatanin Gate and Israeli forces tightened procedure at the gates of the mosque, checking the identity cards of Palestinians and detaining some of them. http://imemc.org/article/136-settlers-enter-al-aqsa-with-yehuda-glick/

United Church of Christ publishes resolution in support of Palestinian children. One of the largest Christian Denominations in the USA, the United Church of Christ, passed a resolution to advocate for the children of Palestine. Read their wonderful resolution, which fully details the suffering of Palestinian children. PLEASE, SIGN and SHARE this petition, Stephen Brackens Brinkley campaign leader. SUMMARY:
This Resolution calls attention to the plight of children suffering under Israel’s prolonged military occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza. In particular, this resolution names the traumatic situation of children living with constant fear of arrest, detention and violence at the hands of Israeli forces. It calls the United Church of Christ to advocate for the human rights of the children of Palestine. It requests the General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ to petition the Prime Minister of Israel and the Israeli Ambassador, asking them to guarantee basic due process rights and exercise an absolute prohibition against torture and ill-treatment of children detained by Israeli authorities. This resolution insists that, from the moment of arrest, all operations and procedures imposed on Palestinian children be carried out in accordance with international juvenile justice standards, specifically the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which Israel ratified in 1991. Further, this resolution calls on the United States Government to adhere to US laws concerning human rights violations and the disbursement of military aid and assistance to Israeli armed forces. Recognising that establishing a just peace between Palestinians and Israelis is essential for creating and sustaining the conditions under which life can flourish for both Palestinian and Israeli children, this Resolution also urges all settings of the United Church of Christ to persist in efforts to end the Israeli military occupation of Palestinians living in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza, as called for in particular by the Thirtieth General Synod. www.causes.com/posts/

UN Humanitarian Fund releases additional US$2.5 million to alleviate hardship in the Gaza Strip. 24 August 2017 | The UN Co-ordinator for Humanitarian Aid and Development Activities, Robert Piper, today released a further US$ 2.5 million from the Humanitarian Fund for the Occupied Palestinian territory to cover urgent needs in the Gaza Strip. Part of the allocation will bolster the UN’s emergency fuel operation, which primarily supplies fuel to generators to maintain operations in around 190 critical health, water and sanitation installations. Virtually all of the two million Palestinians living in Gaza benefit from this fuel operation. The funding will also provide essential life-saving medical equipment and supplies. Provision of solar panels, cash assistance and agricultural supplies are also included, aimed at reducing food insecurity and reducing food production costs for 2,200 small-scale farmers who irrigate by pumping from small wells. The Gaza Strip is into its fourth month of a serious energy crisis. Power supply to households and services has barely covered 25% of needs over the last six weeks. Hospitals and other facilities are operating almost 24/7 on generators that are not designed for continuous use in this way. The last bulk shipment of essential drugs from the West Bank was in March this year; an estimated 40% of essential drugs are at zero stock (i.e. unavailable already, or will be totally depleted within four weeks). There is a large backlog of patients requiring urgent medical referral to hospitals outside the Strip. The governments of Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey all contribute to the fund. In early July, they identified an urgent set of top-priority interventions to respond to the current crisis and appealed for US$25 million. To date, this urgent funding appeal is only 30% funded. “The serious decline in living conditions in Gaza continues,” said Mr Piper. “The humanitarian plight and the human rights of Gaza’s civilian population – over half of them children – appear to have disappeared from view,” he added. http://mailchi.mp/un/0gxh7zgz0n-543185?e=47f1bb36d5

More Palestinian homes destroyed for settlement expansion. 20 August 2017 | Israeli bulldozers destroyed three Palestinian houses near the Negev Desert. One of the houses demolished was in the village of Umm-Qabu, the other two were in the villages of Al-Atrash and Al-Sayyed. An Arab deputy in the Israeli Knesset, Said Al-Kharoumi, claims that the destruction is part of a campaign to harass citizens and force them out of the area. The Chairman of the Supreme Orientation Committee of the Arabs of Negev added: “We believe that this racist and unfair policy is going to fail in weakening our people in Negev, just like it failed in all of its previous attempts.” In Ramallah, Israeli Occupation forces used explosives to destroy a Palestinian family home in the village of Deir Abu Mishal, damaging nearby houses and setting one of them on fire. In Occupied Hebron, Israeli forces bulldozed Palestinian land near Yatta in order to extend the Karmiel settlement already built on Palestinian land. More:

Ben-Gurion Airport Security seizes guitar belonging to Palestinian band. A Palestinian band, hailing from east Jerusalem and Bethlehem, says Ben-Gurion Airport Security has sabotaged its UK tour by seizing an electric guitar. Apo Sahagian, the lead singer of Apo and the Apostles, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday that airport authorities have been holding his guitar for days without releasing it. Sahagian wrote, via email from London, that the airport had told him it would be on the next flight.” But more than 48 hours later, the musician has still not seen his guitar, and nobody will admit they are holding it. “I’ve been calling EasyJet and they’ve been saying that the guitar is still in Israeli Security and has not been released,” Sahagian said. Apo and the Apostles have been around since 2013 and produce folk-rock hits in Arabic and English, including Lina and Baji Wenek. The band is set to perform on Thursday night in London, Friday night at the Greenbelt Festival in Kettering and Sunday night in Guernsey. Sahagian said of Ben-Gurion Airport Security: “They treat us east Jerusalemites as a virus with all the extra security checks.” http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Culture/Israeli-airport-took-away-our-guitar-complains-Palestinian-band-503337

Israel destroys Palestinian schools at start of new school year. 24 August 2017 | Back to school for many means a fresh start but for some Palestinian children it has meant a return to destruction and violence. Scores of children from Jubbet al-Dhib and neighbouring villages in the southern Occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem were expecting Wednesday to be the first day in a brand new primary school, funded by the European Union (EU). On Tuesday evening, however, Israeli forces tore down six prefabricated classrooms and stole all the construction material, leaving behind only piles of children’s chairs on the bare concrete. “They are not people at all, those who would demolish a school, they are not human at all,” Manal Zawahra, a resident of Jubbet al-Dhib, told journalists on Wednesday. “We don’t do anything to their children, so why do they do this to ours? We want to live in peace, but they aren’t letting us," the mother of six added. Jubbet al-Dhib is the third Palestinian school to be demolished or see its infrastructure taken by Israeli forces since the beginning of the month. This includes the only kindergarten for the Jabal al-Baba Bedouin community and the dismantling of solar panels – the only source of power – for a school in Abu Nuwar.

EU missions' statement of “strong concern” following destruction and plunder of Bedouin schools. The EU missions in Jerusalem and Ramallah statement declared that: “Every child has the right to safe access to education and states have an obligation to protect, respect and fulfil this right, by ensuring that schools are inviolable safe spaces for children.” The statement called on Israel “to halt demolitions and confiscations of Palestinian houses and property in accordance with its obligations as an occupying power under international humanitarian law.” In an act of defiance, primary school children nevertheless showed up early on Wednesday morning at the school grounds and helped arrange the discarded chairs, as activists set up a tent shelter on the ruined foundations. Some 60 children, crammed inside the tent, sang the Palestinian national anthem, as teachers held classes on the site in a symbolic show of defiance. Sami Mroueh, the Palestinian Authority director of education in the Bethlehem district, told MEE: “The aggressive attack on this place is attacking human rights in general and children’s rights in particular.” While Mroueh insisted that “we will stay here and we will continue teaching [the students] here,” NGO workers involved with the school said that the looming threat of further Israeli action, coupled with the difficulties of teaching in an overcrowded tent in inclement weather, made the option unlikely in the foreseeable future. In July, the United Nations Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) stated that Israeli restrictions in Area C – the two-thirds of the West Bank under full Israeli military control – had made it “virtually impossible” for Palestinians to obtain building permits there, unlike Israeli settlers, who were often granted building permits. According to OCHA, as a result of such Israeli policies, more than a third of Palestinian communities in Area C lack primary schools, forcing children to travel long distances to obtain an education. B’Tselem reported a “record” number of Palestinian homes destroyed in the West Bank in 2016. Israeli authorities have moved forward plans for thousands of housing units in settlements in the West Bank and annexed East Jerusalem since the beginning of 2017, in direct contravention of international law.

EU, in response to Israeli demolition of schools, says every child has a right to education. 24 August 2017 | The European Union (EU) Representative and the EU Heads of Mission in Jerusalem and Ramallah Thursday expressed strong concern over recent Israeli demolition of Palestinian schools, stressing that every child has a right to education. “The EU missions in Jerusalem and Ramallah express strong concern about the recent confiscations of Palestinian school structures undertaken by Israel in Bedouin communities in the occupied West Bank,” the Missions said in a statement. “Solar panels in Abu Nuwar and a kindergarten in Jabal el Baba have been confiscated, and an elementary school in the village of Jub al-Deeb close to Bethlehem has been dismantled, just at the start of the new school year.” They said: “Every child has the right to safe access to education and States have an obligation to protect, respect and fulfil this right, by ensuring that schools are inviolable safe spaces for children.” The Missions called on Israel “to halt demolitions and confiscations of Palestinian houses and property in accordance with its obligations as an occupying power under international humanitarian law, and to cease the policy of settlement construction and expansion, of designating land for exclusive Israeli use and of denying Palestinian development.” They also called on Israel to return plundered equipment and structures. http://english.wafa.ps/page.aspx?id=VbDOfda91763265495aVbDOfd

Aid agencies described Israeli demolition of Palestinian schools as heart-breaking. Following Israel’s destruction of two Palestinian schools in the West Bank, days before the start the new school year, international aid agencies described the act thus: “It was heart-breaking to see children and their teachers turning up for their first day of school under the blazing sun, with no classrooms or anywhere to seek shelter in, while in the immediate vicinity the work to expand illegal settlements goes on uninterrupted,” said Itay Epshtain, Policy Manager at the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), who visited Jub al-Deeb on the first day of the new Palestinian school year. Threats Palestinian children face on a daily basis include violence and harassment from settlers and Israeli soldiers, military activity inside or next to schools, delays crossing checkpoints, and the arrest of children from their classrooms. The latest spate of school demolitions and confiscations in the West Bank forms part of a wider attack on education in Palestine, said NRC in a press release. In the first three months of this year there were 24 cases of direct attacks against schools, including incidents where tear gas canisters and stun grenades were fired at students on their way to or from school. Last year, four communities' educational facilities were demolished or confiscated and 256 education-related violations were documented in the West Bank, affecting over 29,000 students. Since 2011, the Israeli Government has also threatened to withhold permits and funding to schools that are not implementing Israeli curriculums in which references to Palestinian identity and culture, the Occupation, Israeli settlements and other aspects of Palestinian history, were removed. “We call on the governments and donors funding Palestinian children's education to exercise all of their influence to prevent this violation in all its forms,” Abiy Worku said. “The destruction of educational structures funded by European money is not just a violation of international law. It is also a slap in the face to the international community providing aid to the Occupied Palestinian population in a bid to ensure safe places of learning for children.”

UN threatening to publish West Bank companies blacklist. The companies on the list include Caterpillar, Airbnb, Priceline.com, and TripAdvisor. The US is calling on the UN Human Rights Council not to publish a blacklist of international companies doing business with Jewish communities in the West Bank. The Human Rights Council voted in early 2016 to establish a database listing all its information about the actions of international companies in the territories, despite opposition by the US and Israel. UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, a Jordanian diplomat, has now notified US officials that he is planning to publish the information by the end of the year. He told countries in which the companies on the list are registered to submit a response to the Human Rights Council by 1 September, according to diplomats quoted in The Washington Post. The idea of publishing a list of companies operating in a controversial area originates with the successful international boycott of South Africa in protest against the apartheid regime and the Arab boycott against Israel in previous decades, the newspaper says.

Israeli wall to be built around West Bank settlement. Israel claims it plans to build a wall around the West Bank Jewish settlement of Beit El, which lies close to the Jalazone UN refugee camp. Refugee camp leader, Abu Al-Abed Ibrees, slammed the proposed building of a wall around Beit El as a land grab. “They (the Israelis — ed) came here in the 1970s, but we are here since forever and the nearby villages also,” he stated. “They stole our lands, to which we have full rights.” Jalazone, established on 62 acres of land, was originally home to 2,500 residents; today, however, it houses 16,000. While the population has grown, Ibrees said that the refugee camp's land area has not. “People from the refugee camp are tired, unsafe and poor. There is no space in the camp — the situation is really sad.” Ibrees says the settlers of Beit El attack the residents in Jalazone on a daily basis. “The main road was closed for 15 years, and on the first day after it reopened, the settlers attacked us and burned five cars,” he said. “They always attack our kids by throwing rocks, destroying houses and threatening us.” The closest Palestinian facility to Beit El is a school run by the United Nations Relief & Works Agency, which is located in the northern area of the camp. Ibrees voiced concern over the safety of the students, whom he said are prevented from leaving at any time during the day, “as the Israeli Army would shoot at them.” Ben-Yashar, however, claimed that “just last Friday, the children (in Jalazone) left school and started throwing rocks at us, while tires were set on fire.” For many Palestinians, the Beit El barrier building project will be viewed as “another brick in the wall,” an extension of the hundreds of kilometres-long barrier built by Israel. http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-5007355,00.html

Vigil demanding justice for Palestinian asylum-seeker, Abdel Karim Abu Habel, tortured and imprisoned by Austria at Israel's behest. On Friday, 25 August 2017, Inminds humans rights group are holding a vigil outside the Austrian Embassy in London to demand justice and freedom for Palestinian former child prisoner, now young father, Abdel Karim Abu Habel, who has been tortured and imprisoned in Austria at the behest of Israel. Abu Habel is from the Jabalia refugee camp in Gaza. At age 14 he was abducted by the Israeli Occupation forces and tortured. After they forced a false confession out of him of being a member of Hamas, they sentenced him to nine years imprisonment, stealing his childhood. He was finally released in 2013, having completed his full sentence. During Israel's attack on Gaza in 2014 they targeted Abu Habel, bombing his house and sending him a message that they will kill him. Abu Habel left besieged Gaza in 2015, working his way through Turkey and Greece, he arrived in Austria on a valid visa in April 2016. There he applied for political asylum. Instead of granting him asylum, which they are legally obliged to do in such cases, the Austrian authorities, at the behest of Israel, arrested Abu Habel in July 2016. Working hand-in-hand with Israel, the Austrian authorities allowed Israeli interrogators to brutally torture Abu Habel on Austrian soil for nine months. In a letter, he managed to later smuggle out, Abu Habel describes the torture: “I saw death for nine months of interrogation, I did not see the sun or daylight, I was beaten and tortured. Even the doctor who came to treat my wounds, because of the severity of the torture, joined in my beating and at the end they claimed that I assaulted the doctor. At the beginning, the interrogators denied that they were from the Mossad intelligence service. However I noticed the presence of the Israeli star and then an officer admitted they were Israelis.” On one occasion, they injected him with an unknown substance which caused the colour of his skin to change – especially his hands, which he described in his letter as “still burning”. He says: “I was taken to the hospital several times because of the harsh treatment during interrogations”. When Abu Habel would not break, they threatened to kill his wife in Gaza who was pregnant at the time with his second child. He was not allowed to contact his family or have a lawyer of his choice. In the end, they charged him, again of being a member of Hamas and for social media messages. On 24 July 2017 they sentenced Abu Habel to life imprisonment – on practically the same charges he had already served nine years for. Inminds chair, Abbas Ali, said: “This is a shocking injustice that a European state has perpetrated on its most vulnerable resident on behalf of Israel. When Austria invites Israeli thugs to torture, for nine months, a young Palestinian father who has entered Austria legally and respected all its laws, breaking none of them, it calls into question Austria's sovereignty. It's a shameful mockery of Austria's justice system when it hands down a life sentence to a victim of Israeli terror on the say so of Israel, for charges which he has already served his time in an Israeli dungeon. From the age of 14 Abdel Karim Abu Habel has spent most of his life in an Israeli dungeon, he has only seen three years of freedom, during which Israel bombed his house trying to kill him, and now he is languishing in an Austrian prison for no crime, at Israel's bidding. We are here to demand Austria reassert its sovereignty by rejecting Israeli interference in its justice system and free Abdel Karim Abu Habel.” If you support this activity please share this alert widely, thank you. Jazak Allah,
