A Palestinian minor was seriously injured by the Israeli occupation forces in the West Bank of Palestine Sunday morning.

The 17 year old minor known as Salah al-Zagheer, from the West Bank city of Bethlehem was seriously injured when the Israeli occupation forces shot him from a very close distance.

It is said by witnesses that he was shot while speaking with the Israelis occupation soldiers at Etzion Israeli checkpoint, west of Bethlehem.

At the beginning, Al Zagheer was believed dead as he was shot from a very close distance and he was not offered medical first aid directly. “He was left on the ground while some occupation soldiers humiliated him,” witnesses told reports.

The 17 year old citizen was handed an interrogation notice by the Israeli security at his home and he went to the interrogation interview next day. He was shot at the first Israeli checkpoint he passed across his way.

Israeli soldiers said that they have shot him because they thought that he was carrying a knife.

“Damn this pretext to kill an innocent child”

The wounded minor was not offered first aid as well as he was humiliated by the Israeli soldiers. Look at that one who is putting his dirty leg on the hand of the wounded.

Several groups of extremist Jewish settlers under police protection desecrated Al Aqsa Mosque on Thursday morning; Israeli troops prevented hundreds of Palestinians worshipers to get into it.

Al Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage said that a state of tension is now prevailing among the Palestinians in the occupied Jerusalem as a result of the repeated Jewish violations of the sanctity of Al Aqsa Mosque.

The foundation confirmed that the Palestinian worshipers, who have been inside The Mosque and its for days to protect it, clashed with the invading troops and settlers who stormed the Mosque from Al-Maghariba Gate.

“The armed Israeli policemen detained three Palestinians from the 1948 occupied territories during the confrontations as well as the Mosque warden,” the foundation said.

A large number of Israeli troops and policemen have tightened the blockade on A Aqsa Mosque from inside and outside and banned all Palestinians from getting into it.

London, January, 2012

The Israeli demolition of the Palestinian houses and other buildings in 2011 has resulted in displacing more than 1100 citizens, UN report said Saturday morning.

UN demanded a direct halt of such activities of the Israeli occupation and asked it to bear the responsibility of protecting the Palestinian citizens.

“Israel as the Occupying Power has a fundamental responsibility to protect the Palestinian civilian population under its control and to ensure their dignity and well‐being,” Maxwell Gaylard, the UN humanitarian coordinator in the occupied Palestine, said.

“The current policy and practice of demolitions cause extensive human suffering and should end,” Mr Gaylard added.
He also criticised the policy of destroying the Palestinian homes and their livelihood and said that increases their misery. He confirmed that all those actions are not acceptable.

“The wholesale destruction of their homes and livelihoods is not consistent with that responsibility and humanitarian ideals. The current policy and practice of demolitions cause extensive human suffering and should end,” he said.

The report mentioned: “For the year 2011, some 622 homes and livelihood structures belonging to Palestinian families were similarly destroyed, forcibly displacing almost 1,100 people, over half of them children, and compromising the livelihoods of several thousand more.”

Mr Gaylard noted that these figures represent a dramatic increase compared with previous years, and that a much greater number, in the tens of thousands, remain under threat of dispossession, demolition and displacement.

Israelis announced that they are intending to demolish 500 Palestinian buildings varied between homes, schools, water wells and makeshift tents, human rights resources said.

Those premises are located in the “C” area which according to the Oslo Peace Accord is considered a buffer zone under the Israeli jurisdiction.

Sources said that the buildings are to be demolished under the pretext of not having construction licenses. Israelis do not allow except Israeli settlers to have building in such areas.

Among those buildings to be demolished, there are 32 schools which should be razed several months ago. Palestinians have previously petitioned to Israeli courts to cancel demolition measures, but this time, they will not be excluded.

Hundreds of families will become homeless after carrying out those measures and more than 10 hundred students will be unable to pursue their education.

Israeli Haaretz newspaper reported today that extremist leaders of the Israeli settlers have been urging the Israeli government to accelerate carrying out demolition measures. Sources said that they fear any new move in the peace process that will hinder it.

Groups of Israeli Jewish settlers desecrated the sanctity of Al Aqsa Mosque and walked in its courtyards on Monday morning, witnesses said.

The Settlers who were guarded by Israeli policemen passed through Al Maghariba Gate and entered irrespectively to the main courtyards of the Holy Mosque. That was a provocative measure for Muslims’ religious sympathy.

Senior Jewish rabbis urged, last week, their supporters to enter the Al Aqsa Mosque on the day of Hanukkah which is known as the festival of lights to perform Talmudic rituals and dance for several days.

Hundreds of Jewish settlers last night marched provocatively across the streets of the old city of Jerusalem chanting racist offences against Palestinians, performing dances and beating drums in order to disturb residents.

They uttered offensive insults against the Palestinians; calling for killing them or expelling them from the Holy City of Jerusalem.
