Israel plans to demolish 13,000 Arab buildings in West Bank, UN says

Between 1988 and 2014, Israel’s Civil Administration, the governing body that operates in the West Bank, issued 14,000 demolition orders, of which more than 11,000 are still outstanding and could result in the demolition of up to 13,000 structures owned by Palestinians in Area C, including houses, sheds and animal shelters, according to the report by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). In Area C, according to the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem, Israel retains control of security and land management and “views the area as there to serve its own needs”. According to Israeli Civil Administration data, Palestinians submitted 2,020 applications for building permits in Area C between 2010 and 2014 and only 33 (1.5%) were approved.

US Court Orders Palestine to Pay $10M to Israel Bomb Victims

A United States court ordered Monday that the Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian Liberation Organization pay US$10 million in cash or bond, as the two political parties appeal a long-running lawsuit accusing them of attacking Israel. U.S. District Judge George Daniels in Manhattan ordered the payment even after the U.S. government intervened earlier this month telling the court to “carefully consider” the PA's financial condition, saying too high a bond could compromise its ability to function. Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken also wrote to the court to warn that depriving the Palestinian Authority of “a significant portion of its revenues” could destabilize the region even further and undermine U.S. -led peace efforts, reported the Wall Street Journal earlier this month.

“It was a bad moment because the cops came in my home very, very violently,” Stambul, co-president of the French Jewish Union for Peace (Union Juive Française pour la Paix – UFJP), told The Electronic Intifada. “They broke the doors to enter. I was handcuffed for one hour and spent seven hours in jail.” The ordeal was the result of an anonymous, false tip-off to police that Stambul had murdered his wife. Stambul, a strong critic of Israel, believes it was intended to stop him giving a speech in Toulouse that evening on anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism.

Palestine: Jewish Settlers Torch 100 of World's Oldest Olive Trees

(Reuters) Israeli settlers in the northern occupied West Bank have razed to the ground huge swathes of Palestinian-owned agricultural land in the town of Huwara, according to reports. The fields were set on fire by "masked settlers", Al-Resalah newspaper reports, who snuck on to the land and poured petrol on it before setting it alight. Around 100 olive trees were destroyed in the blaze, which spread as locals were prevented from attending the fire by Israeli forces.

In some of the hardest-hit areas, the displaced have pitched tents next to the debris that once was their homes.

Israeli forces have barred men under the age of 50 from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied East al-Quds (Jerusalem), in a new move to further restrict Palestinians' access to the religious site.

Many families have left their homes in the north seeking refuge in UNRWA schools (not that it’s safer or anything, Israel bombed them during Operation Cast Lead). An estimated 4,000 people left everything behind to seek peace, but that is nowhere to be found in Gaza.
