Summary

On Monday, 5 December 2005, the Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz stated that he ordered IOF to conduct military operations in the Gaza Strip and the north of the West Bank, including extra-judicial executions targeting activists of the Islamic Jihad. Following a bombing that occurred in the Israeli town of Netanya on Monday, IOF imposed a total closure on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Israeli media sources reported that IOF were instructed to shell areas from where Qassam rockets are launched; to resume extra-judicial executions; and to prevent members of the Palestinian police from carrying weapons in Tulkarm. The Israeli government has decided also to prevent Palestinians from entering Israel; to cancel VIP permits; to prevent Palestinian workers from entering Israel; to prevent the movement of Palestinian convoys between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank; and to give a green line to launch a wide scale military operation against the Islamic Jihad in the West Bank. PCHR asserts that these latest decisions will serve to increase tension in the region and will threaten the lives of Palestinian civilians.

Israeli violations of international law continued in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) during the reporting period (1 – 7 December 2005):

Killing: During the reported period, IOF killed 3 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. A fourth Palestinian died in the West Bank from a wound he had sustained at the beginning of the current Palestinian Intifada. On 2 December 2005, IOF killed a Palestinian when he was attempting, together with other civilians, to cross the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel to search for jobs. On 3 December 2005, IOF shot dead a Palestinian fisherman in al-Mawasi area in Khan Yunis. They claimed that he did not obey orders to stop while sailing in the sea. On 7 December 2005, IOF extra-judicially executed a Palestinian in Rafah. In the West Bank, a Palestinian civilian died from a wound he had sustained in Jenin at the beginning of the current Intifada. In addition, 17 Palestinian civilians, including 10 children, were wounded by the Israeli gunfire. Five of these civilians were wounded in Rafah when IOF extra-judicially executed one Palestinian. IOF also launched a series of aerial attacks on the Gaza Strip.

Incursions: IOF conducted 23 military incursions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank and two incursions into the Gaza Strip. During these incursions, IOF raided houses and arrested 42 Palestinian civilians, including 8 children. IOF used trained dogs to search houses.

Restrictions on Movement: IOF have continued to impose a comprehensive siege on the OPT, in violation of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of Palestinian civilians.

IOF have continued to impose a tightened siege on the Gaza Strip, transforming it into a big jail. Rafah International Crossing Point on the Egyptian border, the sole outlet for the Gaza Strip to the outside world, was partially reopened following a two-month closure. An agreement was reached regarding the operation of the crossing point. The crossing point is operated for 4 hours a day only. In the meantime, IOF have closed Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing for Palestinian workers and patients. IOF have also continued to impose severe restrictions at commercial border crossings and on fishing in the Gaza Strip.

IOF have declared the West Bank a closed military zone following the bombing that occurred in the Israeli town of Netanya. They have erected more checkpoints and imposed severe restrictions on the movement of Palestinian civilians. During the reported period, IOF positioned at various checkpoints arrested 10 Palestinian civilians, including a child.

Annexation Wall: IOF have continued to construct the Annexation Wall inside the West Bank. IOF have continued to construct the Annexation Wall inside the West Bank territory. During the reported period, IOF razed areas of Palestinian agricultural land in al-Khader village, southwest of Bethlehem, and the villages of Prophet Samuel and al-Jeeb and Dahiat al-Barid area near Jerusalem, to construct new sections of the Wall. IOF decided to change the route of the Wall to the north of Jerusalem, but these changes will not reverse the fact that the Wall is being constructed inside the West Bank territory, in violation of international law and the Advisory Opinion issued by the International Court of Justice on 9 July 2004. During the reported period, IOF issued a military order confiscating at least 610 donums of Palestinian land in Yatta village, south of Hebron, to construct a new section of the Wall. This section will isolate at least 14200 donums of Palestinian land. In the meantime, the Israeli Minister of Justice Tzipi Livni stated that "the Israeli High Court issue judicial rulings to decide the borders of Israel through the Wall." During the reported period, IOF used force to disperse peaceful demonstrations organized by Palestinian civilians and international and Israeli solidarity activists in protest to the construction of the Wall. At least 20 demonstrators suffered from tear gas inhalation, and 5 others, including a journalist, were wounded by rubber-coated metal bullets. IOF also beat and arrested two Israeli solidarity activists. Also during the reported period, IOF arrested two Palestinian children who were walking near the Wall.

Illegal Settler Activities: Israeli settlers in breach of international humanitarian law continue to reside in the OPT and have launched a series of attacks against Palestinian civilians and property. During the reported period, IOF handed home demolition notices to 12 civilians in Qaryout village, south of Nablus. IOF claimed that these houses were built without obtaining necessary licenses in Area C, which is under full Israeli control according to the Oslo Accords. In addition, IOF also confiscated 5 donums of land in Majdal Bani Fadel village, southeast of Nablus, to establish a military post. IOF also issued a military order confiscating 85 dunums of land in the villages of al-Khader and Battir, and Beit Jala town, to establish a crossing point to separate the western rural areas of Bethlehem from the rest of the governorate. On Monday, 5 December 2005, IOF razed 5 donums of land owned by Palestinian civilians in Silwan neighborhood to the south of al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem, for the purpose of establishing a car parking lot for the vehicles of extremist settlers living in the area.

On Wednesday, 7 December 2005, IOF extra-judicially killed a field leader of Salah al-Din Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, in Rafah. Four civilian bystanders, including 3 children, were also wounded. This attack came in the context of the implementation of a series of measures adopted by the Israeli political and military establishments against Palestinians in the OPT.

According to investigations conducted by PCHR, at approximately 17:30 on Wednesday, 7 December 2005, an Israeli military aircraft launched a missile at a civilian car that was traveling in Kherbat al-'Adas neighborhood in the northeast of Rafah. The missile hit and destroyed the car. The driver was instantly killed. He was identified as Mahmoud Suleiman al-'Arqan, 28. In addition, 5 civilian bystanders (a man and his son, and 3 children) were wounded:

1. Hamada Ahmed 'Abdul 'Aal, 14, seriously wounded by shrapnel throughout the body;

2. Saleh Ahmed 'Abdul 'Aal, 13, wounded by shrapnel throughout the body;

3. Mohammed Ahmed 'Abdul 'Aal, wounded by shrapnel to the head and the neck;

4. Yousef Mohammed al-Sheikh 'Eid, 55, wounded by shrapnel to the head; and

5. Mahmoud Yousef al-Shiekh 'Eid, 11, wounded by shrapnel to the head and the limbs.



2. Continued Siege on the OPT

IOF have continued to impose tightened siege on the OPT and imposed severe restrictions on the movement of Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including Jerusalem.



Gaza Strip

Even though IOF were redeployed around the Gaza Strip, the Israeli government maintained the occupation of the Gaza Strip though controlling or outlets and crossings.

· Rafah International Crossing Point: Rafah International Crossing Point on the Egyptian border, the sole outlet for the Gaza Strip to the outside world, had remained closed for nearly two months. During the reported period, the crossing point was reopened in accordance with an agreement that was concluded regarding the operation of the crossing point. According to the agreement, the crossing point would be operated on 25 November 2005 by the Egyptians and Palestinians with the presence of a European force as a third party, whose responsibilities have not been determined. Goods and foreigners will not be able to travel through the crossing point, rather they will travel through Kerem Shalom crossing point to the southeast of Rafah. Israel insists to have some authorities at Rafah International Crossing Points, including fixing cameras to monitor the movement at the crossing point and handing lists of those who are banned from travelling for security claims to the Europeans to ensure their ban. The crossing point was supposed to be operated for 12 hours a day and then for 24 hours, but it has been so far operated for 4-5 hours a day.



The agreement allows IOF to monitor the border crossings, which are the main artery to the economic, social and cultural rights of the Palestinian civilian population. The absence of actual Israeli military presence inside the Gaza Strip does not mean that the Israeli military occupation has come to an end. The field conditions in the Gaza Strip prove that IOF have continued to control movement to and from the Gaza Strip. This agreement reinforces the IOF control over, and occupation of the Gaza Strip, which has not come to an end with the implementation of the "Disengagement Plan." PCHR is concerned that IOF may continue to perpetrate violations of international humanitarian law, especially the Fourth Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War.



· Beit Hanoun (Erez) Crossing: Even though IOF declared that they would ease the restrictions imposed on the movement of Palestinian civilians through the crossing, they have allowed only hundreds out of several thousands to travel to their work places inside Israel. These workers are over 35; married, have children; and have valid magnetic cards. These workers are subject to prolonged checking and humiliation. During the reported period, IOF allowed a limited number of patients and dozens of traders to travel under strict conditions to Israel. Tuesday, 6 December 2005, IOF closed the crossing in response to a bombing that occurred in the Israeli town of Netanya.



· Al-Mentar (Karni) Commercial Crossing: Since the evacuation of Israeli settlements in the Gaza Strip, IOF have repeatedly closed the crossing. According to field information, 40-50 trucks transport exported goods from the Gaza Strip and 250 trucks transport goods imported from Israel and the West Bank. The capacity of the crossing before the current Intifada was the passage of 800 trucks daily, including 150 ones that transported exported goods from the Gaza Strip. Since the beginning of the Intifada, IOF have repeatedly closed the crossing to pressure Palestinian civilians.



· Sofa crossing: IOF also control Sofa crossing, northeast of Rafah, which is designated for the transportation of construction raw materials. They close the crossing from time to time for no apparent reasons.

The closure of border crossings deprives the Palestinian civilian population in the Gaza Strip of their right to freedom of movement, education and health.

IOF have continued to impose severe restrictions on fishing in the Gaza Strip. Approximately 35,000 people in and around Gaza’s coastal communities rely on the fishing industry, including 2500 fishermen, 2500 support staff and their families.

Since the Fishermen have been allowed back into the sea, they have been subjected to intensive monitoring by the Israeli military. The military have used helicopter gunships, and gunboats to monitor the fishermen. On a number of occasions the Israeli military opened fire against the civilian fishermen in order to enforce the 9 nautical mile limit imposed on them. The Oslo Accords make provision for Gaza’s sea to be fished to 20 nautical miles.

IOF have continued establish military post and observation towers along the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel to maintain control over the Gaza Strip.



The West Bank

IOF have continued to impose a strict siege on Palestinian communities in the West Bank Territory. They have continued to impose severe restrictions on the movement of Palestinian civilians and imposed curfews on a number of Palestinian communities.



· Hebron: On Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday (1, 3, 4 December 2005), IOF continued to impose severe restrictions on the Sahla Street and vicinity of the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron. IOF troops continued their abuses against pupils of al-Ibrahimiya Elementary School for Boys and al-Fayhaa' Elementary School for Girls. IOF prevented more than half the pupils from reaching their schools. As a result, teachers and pupils were forced to hold classes near the electronic checkpoint close to the schools.



On Thursday, 1 December 2005, IOF arrested 3 brothers from Dura village, south of Hebron. IOF erected a checkpoint on the entrance of Kharsa village to the north of Dura village, and stopped a civilian car. Israeli soldiers arrested the three brothers: D'iaa' Ahmad Khalil al-'Awawda, 21; Shams al-'Awawda, 19; and Asad al-Deen al-'Awawda, 16.



At approximately 6:30 on Monday, 5 December 2005, IOF chased a number of Palestinian workers who work in the Abu Ghneim settlement. They detained a number of workers and severely beat two: Ahmad Hussein Ghuneimat, 27; and Salam Hassan al-Zeer, 32, both from the Sourif village, north of Hebron. Both sustained bruises and cuts throughout the body, and were transported to Beit Jala Hospital for treatment. Their injuries were described as moderate.



On Wednesday morning, 7 December 2005, IOF positioned at the entrance of "Ramat Yishai" settlement in Tal Rumaida neighborhood in the center of Hebron arrested 'Aakef 'Abdul Majid Abu Sunaina, 32, when he was farming a tract of agricultural land belonging to the Abu Haikal family near the aforementioned settlement.



· Nablus: At approximately 8:00 on Thursday, 1 December 2005, IOF set up 3 checkpoints on the Bathan road, northeast of Nablus, and closed the road completely. They prevented Palestinian civilians from leaving or entering Nablus for a few hours. It is noted that the Bathan road is the only entry and exit point to and from the city that does not have permanent checkpoints. At the same time, IOF erected a checkpoint at the entrance of Hawara village, south of Nablus. Israeli soldiers stopped traffic on the two directions and searched commuters.



On Saturday morning, 3 December 2005, IOF imposed more restrictions at the checkpoints around Nablus. Hundreds of civilians were held at the checkpoints. IOF also erected a checkpoint to the west of Deir Sharaf village and hindered civilian movement. As a result, students and employees from the village were not able reach their destinations in the city. In the afternoon, Israeli soldiers positioned at Beir Eiba checkpoint, west of Nablus, imposed additional restrictions on the movement of Palestinian civilians. Dozens of young men were detained and vehicles were prevented from crossing the checkpoint. Trained police dogs were used to search commuters. In addition, IOF imposed more restrictions at the Hawara and Za’tara checkpoints, south of Nablus. Israeli soldiers searched commuters and their belongings in addition to checking the identity cards of civilians who under the age of 30. Dozens of civilians were detained for hours under the pretext of ID verification.



On Monday afternoon, 5 December 2005, IOF erected a number of checkpoints at the entrances to the villages of Hares, Kuful Hares, Marda, Eskaka, Yasouf, and al-Zawia, south and southwest of Nablus.

The route of the Wall to the north of the villages of Beer Nabala and al-Judaira would be close to road (45) between Qalandya checkpoint and 'Oufar military post.

Recommendations to the International Community



1. PCHR calls upon the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention to fulfill their legal and moral obligations under Article 1 of the Convention to ensure Israel's respect for the Convention in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. PCHR believes the conspiracy of silence practiced by the international community has encouraged Israel to act as if it is above the law and encourages Israel continue to violate international human rights and humanitarian law.

2. PCHR calls upon the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention to convene a conference to take effective steps to ensure Israel's respect of the Convention in the OPT and to provide immediate protection for Palestinian civilians.

3. PCHR calls upon the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention to comply with its legal obligations detailed in Article 146 of the Convention to search for and prosecute those responsible for grave breaches, namely war crimes.

4. PCHR recommends international civil society organizations, including human rights organizations, bar associations and NGOs to participate in the process of searching for Israeli those accused of grave breaches of international law and to urge their governments to bring these people to justice.

5. PCHR calls upon the European Union to activate Article 2 of the Euro-Israel Association Agreement, which provides that Israel must respect human rights as a precondition for economic cooperation between the EU states and Israel. PCHR further calls upon the EU states to prohibit import of goods produced in illegal Israeli settlements in the OPT.

6. PCHR calls upon the member States of the EU, and all other states, to adopt a voting pattern at the UN bodies, particularly the General Assembly, Security Council and Commission on Human Rights which is keeping with international law.

7. PCHR demands that the International Court of Justice Advisory Opinion be immediately implemented by the international community.

8. PCHR calls on the international community to recognize the proposed Gaza disengagement plan for what it is - not an end to occupation but compounding the occupation and the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip.

9. In recognition of ICRC as the guardian of the Fourth Geneva Convention, PCHR calls upon the ICRC to increase its staff and activities in the OPT, including for facilitating family visitations to Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

10. PCHR appreciates the efforts of international civil society, including human rights organizations, bar associations, unions and NGOs, and urges them to continue their role in pressuring their governments to secure Israel's respect for human rights in the OPT and to end its attacks on Palestinian civilians.

11. In light of the severe restrictions imposed by the Israeli government and its occupying forces on access for international organizations to the OPT, PCHR calls upon European countries to deal the same way with Israeli citizens.

12. PCHR reiterates that any political settlement not based on international human rights law and humanitarian law cannot lead to a peaceful and just solution of the Palestinian question. Rather, such an arrangement can only lead to further suffering and instability in the region. Any peace agreement or process must be based on respect for international law, including international human rights and humanitarian law.
