Hunger striker to be detained until April: Khader Adnan; s. UA: Khader Adnan - HUNGERSTREIK BEENDET

E-Mail: avimn@idf.gov.il

Dear Judge Advocate General,
I am writing to you in concern of Khader Adnan who ended his hunger strike against his administrative detention but will remain in detention until 17 April.
According to reports from Amnesty International he is still held in Ziv hospital in northern Israel under constant armed guard, and still shackled to his hospital bed, despite commitments by the Israel Prison Service to remove the shackles. The non-governmental organization Physicians for Human Rights - Israel, whose doctors have been monitoring Khader Adnan’s health, note that his life remains in danger as he starts the complex recovery process.

I therefore urge\\ to immediately release Khader Adnan and other Palestinians held in administrative detention, unless they are promptly charged with internationally recognizable criminal offences and brought to trial in full conformity with international fair trial standards; to remove Khader Adnan's shackles, which constitute crule, inhuman and degrading treatment given his medical condition, and stressing that he should not be punished in any way for his hunger strike; that he be given specialized medical treatment, including consultation with independent medical professionals, and allowed regular private visits by his family and lawyers.

I call on you to end the use of administrative detention, which violates the right to a fair trial as guaranteed by Article 14 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

Yours sincerely,

E-Mail: avimn@idf.gov.il

Dear Judge Advocate General,

I am writing to you in deep concern because of reports from Amnesty International, relating to them Khader Adnan has been on hunger strike since 18 December 2011 in protest against his administrative detention.
I was informed that on 10 January 2012, Khader Adnan was taken to a military court in nearby Ofer where he was given a four-month administrative detention order signed in advance by the military commander of the West Bank. He decided to continue his hunger strike in protest against his administrative detention. A military judge reviewed the administrative detention order on 1 February 2012 and is expected to inform lawyers of her decision later on the week.
I am very concerned for Khader Adnan's health and safety, and I urge that he is given regular access to medical treatment of his choice, treated humanely at all times, and not punished in any way for his hunger strike.

Furthermore I call on you
- to release Khader Adnan and other Palestinians held in administrative detention, unless they are promptly charged with internationally recognizable criminal offences and brought to trial in full conformity with international fair trial standards;
- to end the use of administrative detention, which violates the right to a fair trial as guaranteed by Article 14 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Judge Advocate General,

I am writing to you in deep concern because of reports from Amnesty International, relating to them Israeli military officials arrested Aziz Dweik, the Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC).

He was taken to Ofer detention centre and held there for five days without charge and that he now joins 20 other PLC members currently held by the Israeli authorities in administrative detention.

I call on you
- to release Aziz Dweik and the other Palestinian parliamentarians held in administrative detention, unless they are promptly charged with internationally recognizable criminal offences and brought to trial in full conformity with international fair trial standards;
- to end the use of administrative detention, which violates the right to a fair trial as guaranteed by Article 14 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

Hadidiya - Palestinian families face renewed demolitions

Ehud Barak, Ministry of Defence, 37 Kaplan Street, Hakirya, Tel Aviv 61909, ISRAEL, Fax: (00 972) 3691 6940 oder (00 972) 3696 2757, E-Mail: minister@mod.gov.il

Dear Minister,
according to reports from Amnesty International the Israeli army has ordered the demolition of a further 21 homes and other properties in the Bedouin hamlet of Hadidiya in the Jordan Valley. Many of the structures at risk have been rebuilt following demolitions in June. Fifty people, including at least 25 children, are at risk of permanent displacement. It has come to my attention too that the Civil Administration issued demolition orders on 10 November for 21 structures used as homes and animal pens. Sixteen of the structures threatened with demolition were donated by the Palestinian Authority (PA) and aid organizations following the demolition of 29 structures on 21 June.

I am concerned very much about this fact, and I therefore call on you
- to immediately cancel the eviction and demolition orders against Palestinians in Hadidiya and the Jordan Valley;
- to place a moratorium on house demolitions and forced evictions in the West Bank until the law is amended to bring it into line with international standards;
- that the responsibility for planning and building regulations in the Jordan Valley and elsewhere in the Occupied Palestinian Territories will be placed solely with the local Palestinian communities.

Yours sincerely,


Palestinian school at risk of demolation

Ehud Barak, Ministry of Defence, 37 Kaplan Street, Hakirya, Tel Aviv 61909, ISRAEL, Fax: (00 972) 3691 6940 oder (00 972) 3696 2757, E-Mail: minister@mod.gov.il

Dear Minister,

according to reports from Amnesty International, a primary school for Palestinian Bedouin children in the Jerusalem area is to be destroyed after Israeli settlers pushed the military to carry out the demolition. I was informed that the plan to demolish the Jahalin school is part of a larger campaign to forcibly displace Bedouins who reside in the area east of Jerusalem, near to the Israeli settlements of Maale Adumim and Kfar Adumim. These Israeli settlements, like all Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, are illegal under international law. It has come to my attention too that some of the families in Khan al-Ahmar are already facing demolition of their homes and the shelters for their sheep and that in July 2011, the Civil Administration upheld final demolition orders for 12 residential structures and four animal shelters in the community. The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs confirmed that the Israeli military has recently approved plans to move the 2,300 Bedouins out of the municipal area of Maale Adumim settlement, where they have lived since 1948, without consulting them.

I am deep concerned about these demolition orders and call on you
- to put an immediate stop to the procedures leading to the demolition of the Jahalin school, as its destruction would be a violation to the right to education;
- to rescind all demolition orders for homes and animal shelters in Khan al-Ahmar;
- to suspend all plans to forcibly displace Bedouins living in Area C in the West Bank;
- to immediately stop the construction and expansion of Israeli settlements and related infrastructure in the Occupied Palestinian Territories as a first step towards removing Israeli civilians living in such settlements.

Yours sincerely,

SALEH ABU AMER, GHALEB FUQHA, MAHMOUD AYOUB - palestinian properties demolished

Ehud Barak, Ministry of Defence, 37 Kaplan Street, Hakirya, Tel Aviv 61909, ISRAEL, Fax: (00 972) 3691 6940 oder (00 972) 3696 2757, E-Mail: minister@mod.gov.il

Dear Minister,

according to reports from Amnesty International, the Israeli army destroyed four domestic structures in al-Farisiya and Tell al-Himma, in the Tubas district in the occupied West Bank. This has affected three Palestinian Bedouin families of at least 19 people, including at least 11 children. The Israeli military demolished Saleh Abu Amer‘s animal shelter in al-Farasiya village. About half an hour later, an animal shelter and a residential structure belonging to Mahmoud Ayoub was destroyed in the nearby village of Tell al-Himma. Ghaleb Fuqha, also of Tell al-Himma, told, that the army bulldozed the cement foundation of his animal shelter and destroyed the metal poles used to support the structure in order to prevent him from re-building. The properties in Tell al-Himma had been donated to the village in 2008 by the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO). It has come to my attention too that under Israeli military law, evicted families are not entitled to alternative housing or compensation, meaning many would face homelessness and destitution were it not for relatives, friends and charities. I am deep concerned that no demolition orders were presented to the residents in advance of the destruction; I deplore the demolitions in Tell al-Himma and al-Farisiya, which pose a serious threat to the livelihoods and well-being of the families. I condemn the demolition of the structures in al-Farisiya and Tell al-Himma and and I therefore urge you to cancel all demolition and eviction orders against Palestinians here and in the occupied West Bank.

Yours sincerely,

Hadidiya - FAMILIES WITHOUT HOMES FOLLOWING DEMOLITION

Dear Minister,
According to reports from Amnesty International the Israeli army have destroyed 29 homes and other properties in the Bedouin hamlet of Hadidiya in the Jordan Valley, leaving 11 children and 16 adults without homes . Although the orders were issued only to the households of Abdul Rahim Hussein Bisharat, Saleh Yousef Bisharat , Abdullah al - Hafeth Bani Odeh and Ahmad Bani Odeh, structures belonging to Ali Mohammed Bis harat and Khader Ali Bisharat were also demolished. Some families were apparently prevented from saving their belongings prior to the demolition. Abdul Rahim Hussein Bisharat, who is in his 60s, told us that when his son Ghazi attempted to salvage some belongings, soldiers beat him on the shoulder and pushed him; when his father intervened they also pushed him. Their belongings ended up lost under the debris.
It has come to my attention too that under Israeli military law, evicted families are not entitled to alternative housing or compensation, meaning many would face homelessness and destitution were it not for relatives, friends and charities.

I am concerned very much about this fact, and I therefore call on you
to allow the villagers to rebuild their homes and not to destroy Hadidiya again;
to immediately cancel the eviction and demolition orders against Palestinians in Hadidiya and the Jordan Valley;
to place a moratorium on house demolitions and forced evictions in the West Bank until the law is amended to bring it into line with international standards;
that the responsibility for planning and building regulations in the Jordan Valley and elsewhere in the Occupied Palestinian Territories will be placed solely with the local Palestinian communities.

Demolition of the Bedouin village al-‘Araqib

Dear Director-General, ILA
According to reports from Amnesty International, Makeshift homes that residents of al-‘Araqib village in the Negev had erected after a previous demolition last month were bulldozed by the Israel Lands Administration. The residents, all Israeli citizens, were again evicted by riot police.
It has come to my attention too that under Israeli military law, evicted families are not entitled to alternative housing or compensation, meaning many would face homelessness and destitution were it not for relatives, friends and charities.

I am concerned very much about this fact, and I therefore call on you
- to allow the villagers to rebuild their homes;
- to respect the Bedouin population's right to their ancestral land by ending the policy of home demolitions in al-'Araqib and other "unrecognized" villages in Israel, and to take steps to officially recognize al-'Araqib and other "unrecognized" villages so as to allow residents security of tenure and the possibility of developing their villages without threat to their homes and livelihoods;
- to take immediate steps in line with the UN Human Rights Committee’s recommendations of July 2010 to guarantee access to health structures, education, water and electricity for residents of these villages.

Yours sincerely,

Legal authorization for the Jahalin school

Dear Prime Minister,
I am writing to you to express my concern over the demolition of Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem and the of the West Bank. The Israeli authorities condemn as “illegal” homes and other structures built without the permits that they control and rarely grant to Palestinian residents, and then order their destruction. As Palestinians are mostly denied building permits they have little choice but to build their homes without permission. Many thousand people are living in daily fear of the demolition of their homes and possessions.
Under Israeli law, evicted families are not entitled to alternative housing or compensation. In most cases it is the help of relatives, friends and charities that keeps many of them from homelessness.
One example among others is the school of the Bedouin Jahalin tribe who live near the community of Arab al-Jahalin about 10km from the Palestinian village of Anata and just south of the Israeli settlement of Kfar Adumin in the West Bank. The school of the Jahalin tribe is at risk of being demolished. In mid-2009, the Abu Dahouk clan, with the help of the Italian non-governmental organization Vento di Terra, began to build a local school in order to spare the children the dangerous road journey to distant schools. The residents ignored an order of the Israeli Military to stop the work because they wanted to complete the buildings in time for the new school year. On 3 March 2010, the Israeli Supreme Court rejected the residents’ appeal to grant legal authorization for the school but ruled that the school could remain open until the end of the school year on 1 June 2010. A further court session which was scheduled to be held on 22 June to determine the school’s future was postponed indefinitely. Thus the future of the school remains in limbo.

The right to adequate housing is an essential component of the right to a decent standard of living. Israel is a state party to, and bound by, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), which explicitly guarantees the right to adequate housing without discrimination (Article 11.1). As the occupying power Israel is also bound by the fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in time of War. Article 53 of the Convention prohibits destruction of property that is not justified by military necessity.

I therefore call on you to

  1. grant legal authorization to the Jahalin school;
  2. immediately stop all demolitions in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, including East Jerusalem;
  3. transfer responsibility for planning and building policies and regulations in the Occupied Palestinian Territories from the Israeli authorities to the local Palestinian communities;
  4. immediately stop the construction or expansion of Israeli settlements and related infrastructure in the Occupied Palestinian Territories as a first step towards removing Israeli civilians living in such settlements.

Sincerely yours,

Forced Eviction in the Jordan Valley

Dear Minister,
according to reports from Amnesty International, 83 people, including 32 children, are facing imminent forced eviction and destruction of their property in the Jordan Valley area of the occupied West Bank following military orders from the Israeli authorities.
It has come to my attention that under Israeli military law, evicted families are not entitled to alternative housing or compensation, meaning many would face homelessness and destitution were it not for relatives, friends and charities. While homes are often targeted, Israeli authorities have also issued demolition orders against Palestinian schools, clinics, roads, water cisterns, electricity pylons, sheds and animal shelters.

I am concerned very much about this fact, and I therefore call on you

  1. to immediately cancel the eviction and demolition orders;
  2. that the responsibility for planning and building regulations in the Jordan Valley and elsewhere in the Occupied Palestinian Territories will be removed from the Israeli military authorities and placed solely with the local Palestinian communities;
  3. to place a moratorium on house demolitions and evictions in the West Bank until the law is amended to bring it into line with international standards.

Yours sincerely,
