This is the weekly report passed by the Middle East Monitors.


According to the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights Weekly Report: On Israeli Human Rights Violations in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, during the week of 25 Nov.- 02 Dec 2009, 6 Palestinians were wounded by Israeli forces in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. In addition, an Israeli settler used his car to run over the body of a wounded Palestinian in Hebron. During the last week, Israeli forces conducted 14 incursions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank, and one into the Gaza Strip.

Israeli attacks in the West Bank:
The Israeli government approved the construction of 131 housing units, while Israeli forces issued military orders to demolish more houses in the West Bank.

At least 65% of the main roads that leads to 18 Palestinian communities in the West Bank are closed or fully controlled by Israeli forces (47 out of 72 roads).

There are around 500 kilometers of restricted roads across the West Bank. In addition, approximately one third of the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem, is inaccessible to Palestinians without a permit issued by the Israeli forces. These permits are extremely difficult to obtain.





Israeli attacks in the Gaza Strip
On 27 November 2009, Israeli forces fired a missile at a number of activists of the Palestinian resistance in the northern Gaza Strip, wounding four.
Israeli naval troops have continued to attack Palestinian fishermen in the Gaza Strip.

Israeli troops positioned at Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing abducted a Palestinian civilian who was on his way to Jerusalem to receive medical treatment.

On Monday November 30th, at approximately 11:00, Israeli forces moved nearly 600 meters into the east of Jabalya town in the northern Gaza Strip. Until 18:30, they leveled areas of land which they had already razed.
Israel has continued to impose a siege on the Gaza Strip, preventing Palestinians from leaving, and keeping essential goods from entering. Poverty and unemployment rates stand at approximately 80% and 60% in the Gaza Strip.

Israel has continued to prevent the entry of spare parts form water networks and sewage systems. Losses incurred to this sector are estimated at US$ 6 million.

Israel has imposed additional access restrictions on international diplomats, journalists and humanitarian workers seeking to enter the Gaza Strip. They have prevented representatives of several international humanitarian organizations from entering the Gaza Strip.



Israeli Annexation Wall:
Israeli forces have continued to construct the Annexation Wall inside West Bank territory. During the reporting period, Israeli forces used force against peaceful demonstrations organized by Palestinian civilians and international and Israeli human rights defenders in protest of the construction of the Wall.

Following the Friday Prayer on 27 November 2009, dozens of Palestinian civilians and international and Israeli human rights defenders gathered in the center of Bil'in village, west of Ramallah. They moved towards the Wall and following altercations, threw stones at Israeli troops positioned in the area. Immediately, Israeli troops fired rubber-coated metal bullets, sound bombs and tear gas canisters at the demonstrators. Dozens of demonstrators suffered from tear gas inhalation.



Israeli settlement activity:
On 25 November 2009, Israeli forces moved into al-'Aqaba village, northeast of Tubas. They handed out demolition orders for 3 houses.

On 26 November 2009, 5 armed Israeli settlers brought a tractor and worked a tract of land in Bab al-Ghars area in the east of Yanoun village, southeast of Nablus. The affected land is located nearly 1,500 meters away from "Gid'ounim" settlement outpost to the east of the village. On the same day, Israeli forces moved into Tayaseer village, east of Tubas. They handed notices to Mahmoud Najeh Jaber and Jaber Najeh Jaber ordering stoppage of construction of their houses.

In spite of the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's claims on 25 November 2008, concerning a cease of settlement construction in the West Bank, excluding Jerusalem, for 10 months, on 27 November 2009, the Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak approved the construction of 28 public buildings in Israeli settlements in the West Bank, to be completed by September 2010.

On 29 November 2009, Israeli forces dismantled two electricity towers that supply areas located to the southeast of Yatta village, south of Hebron, claiming that the towers were places in a banned zone. On the same day, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered continuing the construction of 29 housing units in "Kidar" settlement, southeast of Jerusalem. Netanyahu's office claimed that "the construction of those units had been approved before the decision to freeze settlement construction" in Israeli settlements in the West Bank for 10 months.

On 30 November 2009, at least 50 Israeli settlers from "Yits'har" settlement, escorted by Israeli forces, attacked a number of Palestinian farmers who were gathering olive trees that had been uprooted by settlers in al-Rummana area in the south of Bourin village, south of Nablus. Israeli forces forced the farmers away from the area and the settlers attempted to break into a house belonging to 'Atallah 'Abdul Rahman Soufan.

On 02 December 2009, the Israeli government approved the construction of 84 structures in Israeli settlements in the West Bank. The Israeli daily Ha'aretz reported that the Israeli government approved the construction of those structures in spite of its official declaration of a freeze of settlement construction in the West Bank.



Recommendations to the international community:

Due to the number and severity of Israeli human rights violations this week. The PCHR made a number of recommendations to the international community. Among these were a recommendation that the International Committee of the Red Cross increase its staff and activities in the Occupied Territories, including the facilitation of family visitations to Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

In addition, the 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 Occupied Territories and to end its attacks on Palestinian civilians.

This is sick beyond belief what the Israeli Govt. and IDF forces are doing. Where is EU/US/Germany/UN etc?? Are the other countries just to pass press release to show fake sympathy but not do one frigging thing about it. Not 1 practical step taken by any of the world powers to stop this inhumanity. This is unbelievable the whole world is letting this Genocide happen on the hands of Israel or should I say apartheid Israel. Disgusting and disturbing on so many levels.

First off, I must say you are committed to your agenda, and your posts are well thought out and eloquent.

I'm not posting here to argue with you.

I just want to ask a single question-

If you truly believe this oppression exists and must be stopped, and the world governments are ignoring it, why don't you join Hamas and help the cause?

Oooooh, objectivity simply drips from pages of the report. As an example:


In addition, an Israeli settler used his car to run over the body of a wounded Palestinian in Hebron

Wounded Palestinian was wounded by soldiers because he just stabbed two Israelis ,including wife of the driver. But it is justifiable to say only semi-truths in propaganda war, right? And your source also conveniently fails to mention that settler was arrested after this, and Palestinian is not a "body", but in Israeli hospital and alive.
Edit:
Example of "slow killing" of West bank:


Giant West Bank cake aims for Guiness record

The economy in Palestinian West Bank remains on course to grow about 7 percent this year, for the first growth since 2005, according to the International Monetary Fund.

Puts things in perspective , does not it?
And if Gaza leaders will stop their futile war against Israel - Gaza will become again what it was before the rockets age.

So showing the truth is an agenda? Since when? Instead of sending personal attacks on me it will be better if you concentrate on the topic. I know truth is bitter but be a man and face it.

Infact I just found the video of whole incident. It clearly shows who the aggressor is. Want to find out? Have a look.

Warning: The video is brutal and can be considered graphic.


It clearly shows in the video how the Israeli guy ran over the other Palestinian guy and then reverses the car to run over him again and keeps dragging the body..

The Jews, least the Zionist and most religious types, feel it is perfectly normal to treat non-Jews like crap and kill as needed. Their god and religious leaders tell them to do so...

I wont say Jews in this matter as you cannot blame a whole sect of people for a group doing wrong. Zionist I agree. Also not all Israeli are Jews and not all people living there are to be blamed for it. The Israeli Govt. policies are definitely extremist nothing less than Nazi policies.

If what you say is true - why those evil genocidal racist Israelis do not kill all the peaceful cute multicultural Palestinians using their clear superiority in fire power?
Maybe because what you just say is a "non-truth"?

there are no people on the face of this earth more rascist than the israelis.
bunch of genocidal rascist arrogant nutjobs with divine delusions of grandeur. one would expect more from survivors of the holocaust.

There are holes in that story, if he just stabbed two people how the heck was he on road? Was he not under custody of IDF?If he was then it would mean the IDF forces intentionally pushed him under the car. Or did the cops let him go after he stabbed?

if they could somehow make them disapeer without the world seeing they would. hell they are doing it even in full veiw of the world.

1500 arab people killed in last gaza war.
8 jews.
5 jews from freindly fire.

edit: that is 5 of the 8 jews killed by freindly fire. in other words only 3 jews killed by enemy fire.

that isnt war. that is genocide.

I think that the killling of people and committing violence is wrong, no matter who does it. Two wrongs do not make a right, and sooner or later someone just needs to be the bigger man. I really do not care who should have what or whatever reasons why Jews are there or why Palestinians are there, the fact of the matter is that they are there and God damn they should at least try to make things better. Lead by example, do onto others as you would have done onto you, and realize that aggression should be the last resort. I think as all of those parties realize this, the better off all of that will become.

Yes. Israel is so cunningly inhumane in their slow killing of Palestinians, that Palestinians in Gaza have 3.7% population growth rate (7th in the world) , and in West bank "only" 2.9% (in first 20). There are much much much more Palestinians then there were in 1948. All this is because Israel is inhmane, naturally.

No this is not genocide. Definition of genocide:

Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group.

In a WAR, as you correctly observed, both sides fired at each other. You can correctly claim that losses of civilian Palestinian population were unacceptably
high, i can even see how war crimes can be thrown in the pile. But genocide - do not make me laugh. 1000 plus people is a lot. But on our planet every year there are dozens of conflicts with much higher casualty rates.

Palestinian stabbed two people. Soldiers shot him. He fell down on the road. Settler lost it and tried to repeatedly ran him over with the car. Soldiers (18 year olds) that are trained to deal with Palestinian violence but not with Jewish one froze. Other settlers stopped the driver and took the keys out of ignition. Medics got the Palestinian. Cops got settler. Where exactly are holes in the story?
