During 2013, attacks by settlers in the West Bank increased, varying between attacks on private and public property and attacks on places of worship. There were also attacks involving physical assault on Palestinian citizens in the West Bank, which threatened the lives of dozens. There are about 500,000 settlers in the West Bank. Al-Haq's Monitoring and Documentation Department has recently documented a severe beating against Khatima al-'Abed Shreiteh, a 50 year-old woman from the village of al-Mazra'a al-Gharbiyya to the northwest of Ramallah. After being beaten by settlers, she was transported in critical condition to the emergency department in Ramallah Medical Center on 18 July 2013. خلال هذا العام 2013 تزايدت اعتداءات المستوطنين في الضفة الغربية وتنوعت طبيعة الاعتداءات ما بين اعتداءات على الممتلكات الخاصة والعامة ودور العبادة، ولم تقف اعتداءات المستوطنين عند هذا الحد بل وصلت لحد الإعتداء الجسدي على المواطنين الفلسطينيين في الضفة الغربية مما عرض حياة العشرات منهم للخطر. علما بأن عدد المستوطنين في الضفة الغربية حوالي 500.000 مستوطن، وكانت وحدة الرصد والتوثيق في مؤسسة الحق قد وثقت مؤخرا حادثة الإعتداء بالضرب المبرح على المواطنة خاتمة العبد شريتح "50" عاما من قرية المزرعة الغربية للشمال الغربي لمدينة رام الله مما استدعى نقلها في حالة حرجة إلى قسم الطواريء في مجمع رام الله الطبي وذلك يوم 18/7/2013.

Virtual Field Visit: Israel's Enforcement of the Buffer Zone in the Gaza Strip - English Version
 
05:02
This video combines Al-Haq's visual documentation with satellite imagery to create virtual tours of the human rights violations commited in the occupied Palestinian territory. Each tour is designed to recreate the experience of making a field visit, providing everyone with the opportunity to see the on-the-ground reality of the occupation. This tour shows how Israeli occupying forces often use live ammunition to enforce the buffer zone in the Gaza Strip, both on land and at sea. Since the beginning of 2010, stone-collectors have been increasingly under attack by Israeli soldiers. In 2009, Al-Haq documented seven cases of rubble collectors injured by live ammunition in the vicinity of the buffer zone, whereas this number was 10 times higher during 2010, when 68 rubble collectors, of whom 15 children, were shot. Fishermen are also targeted on a daily basis with many incidents occurring outside the buffer zone. In some cases, the Israeli occupying forces fire rockets and shoot bullets at the Palestinian boats at sea or on the shore in order to destroy them, thus preventing the fishermen from working. - View an interactive version of this Virtual Field Visit. http://alhaq.mits.ps/index.php/virtual-field-visits/buffer-zone - Read Al-Haq's legal analysis of the Israel Enforcement of the Buffer Zone http://www.alhaq.org/etemplate.php?id=598

Memory of the Cactus - English Subtitiled ذاكرة الصبار - ترجمة انجليزية
 
41:32
A 42 minute documentary film that combines the cactus and the memories it stands for. The film addresses the story of the destruction of the Palestinian villages of Latroun in the Occupied West Bank and the forcible transfer of their civilian population in 1967. Over 40 years later, the Israeli occupation continues, and villagers remain displaced. The film follows two separate but parallel journeys. Aisha Um Najeh takes us down the painful road that Palestinians have been forcefully pushed down, separating them in time and place from the land they nurtured; while Israelis walk freely through that land, enjoying its fruits. The stems of the cactus, however, take a few of them to discover the reality of the crime committed. اختزل الفيلم الوثائقي الفلسطيني "ذاكرة الصبار" في 42 دقيقة قصة معاناة فلسطينيي قرى اللطرون الذين هجروا على أيدي الجيش الإسرائيلي عام 1967. الفيلم من إنتاج مؤسسة الحق وإخراج حنا مصلح. لاتزال قصة (عمواس ويالوا وبيت نوبا) قرى اللطرون محفورة في ذاكرة من بقوا من الجيل الفلسطيني الشاهد على عمليات تهجير الفلسطينيين من القدس عام 1967 . حكايات يجسدها فيلم ذاكرة الصبار الوثائقي الفلسطيني والذي يحكي قصص من اقتــلعوا من منازلهم التي تحولت الآن إلى متنزه لأبناء المستوطنين في القدس. خوف وحيرة وذكريات لا تنتهي جمعها الفيلم الذي أنتجته مؤسسة "الحق" الفلسطينية وأخرجه حنا مصلح والذي عرض من خلاله نماذج من معاناة سكان قرى اللطرون غربي القدس ساردا حكايتهم على ألسنهم فأعاد الفيلم المشاهدين الى الوراء عشرات السنين وكأن الحدث كان البارحة. وقد حاز الفيلم على الجائزة الأولى كأفضل فيلم وثائقي في مهرجان دبي السينمائي للسنة الثالثة على التوالي

Questo video abbina la documentazione visiva di Al-Haq con le immagini satellitari in modo da creare delle visite virtuali sulle violazioni dei diritti umani commesse all'interno dei territori palestinesi occupati. Ciascuna visita è stata progettata con l'intento di ricreare l'esperienza di una visita sul campo, consentendo in questo modo ad ognuno di poter osservare sul campo la realtà dell'occupazione. Questa visita mostra come la costruzione del Muro su terra palestinese, le severe restrizioni al movimento risultanti nel mancato accesso ai mezzi di sussistenza e l'espansione delle colonie israeliane costituiscano i mezzi usati dalla potenza occupante, Israele, con il solo scopo di ridurre drasticamente la presenza palestinese nel territorio occupato. - Per vedere la versione interattiva di questa visita virtuale http://alhaq.mits.ps/index.php/virtual-field-visits/annexation-wall - Per leggere l'analisi giuridica di Al-Haq sull'impatto del Muro d'Annessione http://www.alhaq.org/publications/publications-index?task=callelement&format=raw&item_id=44&element=304e4493-dc32-44fa-8c5b-57c4d7b529c1&method=download

My Home | بيتي
 
04:48
'My Home' Housing demolitions carried out under the pretext of unlicensed construction are a common occurrence in occupied East Jerusalem. Palestinians are rarely granted permits by the Israeli authorities to build houses in the city. Apartments prices have risen drastically in Jerusalem -- 120 m apartment would cost approximately $350,000. As a result, they are forced to build without a permit, which often results in the Israeli authorities issuing demolition orders on unlicensed buildings. In 2013, 82 houses owned by Palestinians in Jerusalem were demolished, effecting 281 people. In recent years, self-demolition of houses has become common in East Jerusalem as the Palestinian owners of "unlicensed" houses are forced to choose between demolishing the houses themselves or paying the Jerusalem municipality to do so for them. In this video Muhammad 'Amireh speaks of his experience of having to demolish his own house. بيتي أصبح هدم المباني بحجة عدم الترخيص ظاهرة شائعة في القدس الشرقية. لا تمنح السلطات الاسرائيلية تراخيص البناء للفلسطينيين في القدس مما ادى إلى ارتفاع سعر الشقة السكنية بمساحة 120 متر مربع الى حوالي 350.000 $و نتيجة لذلك أجبر الفلسطينيين في القدس على البناء من غير ترخيص وبالتالي تقوم السلطات الاسرائيلية بهدم هذه المباني بحجة عدم الترخيص. وخلال العام 2013 هدمت سطات الاحتلال 82 منزلا بحجة عدم الترخيص، وكان عدد المتضررين حوالي 281 شخصا. وتزايدت في السنوات الاخيرة آوامر "الهدم الذاتي" حيث تصدر المحكمة آمرا بهدم المنزل على نفقة مالكه أو يقوم بدفع تكاليف الهدم لبلدية الاحتلال. المواطن محمد عميرة كان واحدا ممن أُجبر على هدم منزله على نفقته الخاصة.

The Fragmentation of 'Azzoun 'Atma
 
06:11
This video is part Al-Haq's 10 Years Too Long campaign against the Annexation Wall. For more info see www.alhaq.org/10years2long. Tweet #10years2long. The Palestinian village of 'Azzoun 'Atma is located approximately 12 km south the city of Qalqiliya in the north of the West Bank and has a population of about 2,000 Palestinians. In 2009, the Annexation Wall divided the village in two parts, isolating about 70 villagers within the Seam Zone -- an area between the Wall and the Green Line -- and separating them from the rest of the village. For these families access to the other part of 'Azzoun 'Atma and the rest of the West Bank is possible only through a gate manned by Israeli soldiers that only opens for a limited time each day. Furthermore, Palestinians with West Bank IDs who do not reside in this separated neighbourhood are not able to access the portion of the village located on the eastern side of the Wall, except in the extremely rare cases when, after a lengthy and difficult application process, they are granted a permit.

Al-Nu'man Village قرية النعمان
 
06:17
Al-Nu'man is a small village consisting of one street and approximately 25 houses situated southeast of Jerusalem and northeast of Bethlehem, a few hundred metres north of Beit Sahour. In 1967, Israel illegally de facto annexed East Jerusalem and surrounding areas, including the land of al-Nu'man village. However, the inhabitants of the village were recorded as West Bank residents and given West Bank IDs rather than the Jerusalem IDs received by most Palestinians in illegally annexed areas. As West Bank ID holders, these residents are considered by Israel to be illegally residing in Jerusalem simply by being in their homes. A small minority of the village residents possess Jerusalem IDs, being former residents (and their offspring) of nearby Jerusalem villages who did not register the change in their place of residence when they moved to al-Nu'man. The Jerusalem ID holders remaining in the village amount to less than 10% of al-Nu'man's present population of approximately 220. In addition to the difficulties caused by holding ID cards that, under Israeli law, do not permit them to reside in their own village, al-Nu'man villagers are detrimentally affected by Israeli settlement construction and expansion in the area. Har Homa settlement, begun in 1997 and built on the Abu-Ghneim mountain, lies nearby, and an extension is planned next to al-Nu'man, on a portion of the village's lands. Substantial areas of land surrounding the village were also appropriated by Israeli confiscation orders for the establishment of a military area,2 as well as a further 30 dunums for the building of Mazmouriyya trade terminal,3 currently in progress. In addition, the route of the Jerusalem Ring Road, on which work has already commenced, will cut through the village. The village is also bounded by the Annexation Wall, which in this area takes the form of a fence, constructed inside the West Bank. As a result of these Israeli development plans in the area, to which the presence of the village is an obstacle, al-Nu'man is the target of a systematic campaign aiming to remove its inhabitants and subsequently appropriate its land. The problems for al-Nu'man residents escalated in 2003 when construction of the Wall began near the village, and heightened even further in May 2006 when a permanent checkpoint in the Wall became the only entrance to, and exit from, the village. Al- Nu'man is now bordered on three sides by the Wall, isolating it from the rest of the West Bank, which is situated on the opposite side of the Wall, east of the village. Only al-Nu'man residents with West Bank IDs are permitted through the checkpoint. On the western side of the village, the former road to Jerusalem has been partially destroyed by Israeli authorities and is blocked by a metal gate at the entrance to the village.

East Jerusalem: Annexed and Divided
 
05:19
In 1967, Israel annexed the Palestinian city of East Jerusalem, separating it from the rest of the West Bank. The construction of the Annexation Wall, which began in 2002, fragmented East Jerusalem into enclaves of Palestinian communities along the path of the Wall, further segregating Palestinian residents from one another. Particularly affected are East Jerusalem neighbourhoods of Kufr 'Aqab, Semiramis, Shu'fat refugee camp and 'Anata -- located east of the Wall -- that have been deprived of services and rights despite the fact that they are located within the Israeli-defined municipal boundaries of Jerusalem. The effect of the Wall on Palestinian Jerusalemites has been, and continues to be, negative and life altering. Movement within East Jerusalem itself, and from the city to the rest of the West Bank, has become heavily securitised and restricted. Approximately 25 per cent of Palestinian Jerusalemites face the reality of crossing a checkpoint to access health, education and other services to which they are entitled to as tax-paying residents. Not to mention the continuously detrimental effect the Wall is having on the family, social and cultural life of Palestinian residents of Jerusalem.

Since 1967, the Successive Israeli governments have sought to abolish the nomadic lifestyle in the Occupied Palestinian territories , and the occupation authorities are still besieging the Jordan Valley Area with a number of checkpoints to restrict the movement of the Palestinians to and from Jordan Valley, and they work from time to time to expel Palestinian Bedouins in the Palestinian territory, specifically in Area "C" according to the classification of the Oslo agreements signed between the PLO and Israel in 1993. Al-Khan al-Ahmar Area: on its territory is one of the major illegal settlements known as "Ma'aleh Adumim", which has expand every year at the expense of the Palestinian territories and threatening the Palestinian Bedouins that have existed for decades through forced displacement. The first process of forced displacement in that area was in 1997.

On the 100th Anniversary of International Women's Day  Palestinian Women's Rights Remain Under Siege
 
10:23
Tuesday 8 March marks the 100th Anniversary of International Women's Day. Women across the world will be mobilising and marching in celebration and protest, championing their freedom of expression and campaigning for further change. Al-Haq takes this opportunity to remind the rest of the world that in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) the struggle for the fundamental human rights of Palestinian women is held hostage to a belligerent and unrelenting occupation. In commemoration of International Women's Day, the United Nations theme this year is 'Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women.' Throughout the OPT, women's access to educational institutions, places of employment and healthcare clinics is severely impeded by restrictions on Palestinians' right to freedom of movement. While the repressive and discriminatory policies exercised by Israel against the free movement of Palestinians have had a devastating effect on the entire population, the disproportionate impact on Palestinian women, who are denied the most basic economic and social rights guaranteed to them by international law, cannot be overstated. The Annexation Wall, which appropriates lands, disconnects communities, and restricts access to medical care, schools, and workplaces, is only one of numerous pernicious policies that violate Palestinians' right to freedom of movement. Travel time and costs are greatly multiplied by the Wall, its associated permit regime and over 500 other obstacles to free movement in the OPT, including checkpoints and road blocks. The restrictions imposed by Israel have a gender specific impact and present particular risks for, amongst others, expectant mothers, female students and workers, resulting in the denial of their right to health, education, decent work and an adequate standard of living. The socio-economic instability that these violations have wrought in the OPT - perhaps most notable in the Gaza Strip where severe deprivation is aggravated by the continuing policy of closure - coupled with the loss of many male members of Palestinian society to Israeli detention or violence, has contributed to the stresses of family life and created conditions rife for domestic violence. Palestinian women are also disproportionately affected by Israeli policies and laws which, through a complex system of permits and administrative bureaucracy, prevent Palestinians with different residency from living together as a family. Palestinians with West Bank identification cards are prevented from residing with their family in occupied East Jerusalem, while Palestinians from the Gaza Strip are prohibited from joining a spouse in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. In addition, arbitrary nationality laws deny Palestinian family members with a foreign passport entry at Israeli-controlled borders. Israel's denial of family reunification places on many women the burden of raising children in the absence of a father, with the consequent negative economic and financial impact that this brings.

This is a sharp increase in the number of killings as compared to the previous years and the number continues to rise with Three more Palestinians having been killed by Israeli forces from 1/4/2014 -- 15/5/2014. The circumstances of many of these incidents of killings depict a continued pattern of excessive use of force. In some cases, investigations illustrate that killings may also amount to willful killing.

On the 8th of March,  This is my appeal to the world
 
06:13
We, the Palestinian Council of Human Rights Organisations (PCHRO), would like to mark International Women's Day by expressing our solidarity with administrative detainee Hana Shalabi. Hana is today beginning her 22nd successive day of hunger strike in protest at her internment without charge or trial and her ongoing ill-treatment at the hands of the Israeli authorities. Hana, 29 years old, previously spent more than two years in administrative detention before she was released in October 2011 as part of the prisoner exchange deal between Israel and Hamas. Less than four months later she was arrested once more by Israeli authorities at her home near Jenin, when she was beaten with the butt of a rifle by an Israeli soldier. Following her arrest, she was beaten, blindfolded and later forcibly strip-searched and assaulted by an Israeli male soldier. Hana was given a six-month administrative detention order and spent the first three days of her internment in solitary confinement. She was later sentenced to solitary confinement for a further seven days as punishment for her continuing hunger strike. Internment, also known as administrative detention, is a procedure under which Palestinian detainees are held without charge or trial for periods of up to six months. Detention orders are usually renewed before they expire, and detainees can be held for indefinite periods of time, with several detainees spending up to eight consecutive years in internment. Administrative detainees are held on the basis of "secret material" that is not made available to them or their lawyers, therefore undermining their ability to effectively challenge the detention order. Israel's widespread practice of administrative detention, of which Hana Shalabi is yet another victim, constitutes a serious breach of international humanitarian and human rights law. While administrative detention is allowed under international humanitarian law, it must be used only in exceptional circumstances and must uphold fair trial standards, which Israel does not comply with. Israel is currently detaining some 310 Palestinians without charge in administrative detention. Although no Palestinian is left untouched by the occupation, it is true that women are, in many cases, doubly affected by Israel's illegal practices. However, internment also affects a large number of Palestinian women indirectly; those wives, mothers, sisters and daughters of detainees who endeavour to maintain community and family structures while they wait indefinitely for their family members to be freed. For example, the wife and daughter of Ahmad Qatamesh, who has been declared a prisoner of conscience by Amnesty International, recently saw his detention order renewed for the third consecutive time. Administrative detention, characterised by renewable detention orders and abusive conditions of imprisonment, constitutes a merciless cycle that attempts to suppress the spirit of both the detainees and their families. While Hana Shalabi's internment by way of an inhumane system is representative of the utter disregard in which Israel holds the lives and rights of Palestinians, administrative detention is only one of a wide range of violations perpetrated against Palestinian women in the OPT. Palestinian women and girls are, along with the rest of the Palestinian population, regularly subjected to harassment, intimidation and ill-treatment by Israeli military authorities and as a consequence they are denied the enjoyment of basic human rights such as education, health and freedom of movement. Such treatment amounts to an assault on their dignity and security of person in violation of international law.

Virtual Field Visit: Al-Nu'man - A Case of Indirect Forcible Transfer
 
04:28
For more Virtual Field Visits go to - www.alhaq.org In 1967, Israel illegally annexed East Jerusalem and surrounding areas, including the land of Al-Nu'man village. However, the inhabitants of the village were not recorded in the 1967 census of Jerusalem and many were given West Bank IDs. Villagers are considered by Israel to be illegally residing in Jerusalem simply by being in their homes. In 2002 al-Nu'man's residents were informed that the village lay adjacent to the planned route of the Wall and, with the settler bypass road passing through the village, they would have no access to Jerusalem or the West Bank. In 2006 a military checkpoint was established at the entrance to the village allowing only al-Nu'man residents to pass through. The stunting of Al-Nu'man's natural growth, the gradual enforced transfer of residents and the obstruction of any incoming residents can all be attributed to Israel's systematic campaign to ultimately rid the area of its Palestinian inhabitants. This is a clear example of a policy of indirect forcible transfer, which is a war crime under international humanitarian law.

Virtual Field Visit: E1 Area
 
04:12
The "E1" Virtual Field Visit is the latest in a series of virtual field visits produced by Al-Haq. Designed to bring the field to people who are unable to visit the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT), the virtual field visits use maps to illustrate the obstacles and human rights abuses faced by Palestinians on a daily basis. On 29 November 2012 the United Nations (UN) voted to upgrade the status of Palestine to non-member observer State. Shortly afterwards, Israel, who had vociferously objected to the upgrade, announced the construction of an additional 3,000 units for settlers in the West Bank. This included construction in what is known as the "E1" area, which refers to a twelve square kilometre plot of land located in the West Bank, to the east of the Jerusalem municipal boundary and bordering the Ma'ale Adumim settlement. The close proximity of the E1 area to Ma'ale Adumim settlement allows for significant expansion of what is already the third most popular settlement in the OPT. The E1 area stretches across 22,000 dunums of confiscated Palestinian land and also provides a vital passage joining the northern and southern sections of the West Bank, as well as Jerusalem. The closure of this passage would effectively cut the West Bank into two. Construction in the E1 area, combined with restrictions imposed by the Annexation Wall and the Oslo Accords, creates a clear obstacle to a self-sufficient economically viable Palestinian State.

[Versión en español] Visita Virtual: Ejecución de la Zona de Exclusión en la Franja de Gaza por Israel Este video combina la documentación visual de Al-Haq con imágenes de satélite para crear visitas virtuales de las violaciones de derechos humanos cometidas en el territorio palestino ocupado. Cada recorrido está diseñado para recrear la experiencia de hacer una visita de campo, ofreciendo a cada uno la oportunidad de ver la realidad de la ocupación sobre el terreno . Este recorrido muestra cómo las fuerzas de ocupación israelí utilizan a menudo munición real para hacer cumplir la zona de exclusión en la Franja de Gaza, tanto en tierra como en el mar. Desde el inicio de 2010, los soldados israelíes han incrementado los ataques contra palestinos que trabajan recogiendo escombros. En 2009, Al-Haq documentó siete casos de recogedores de escombros heridos por munición real en las cercanías de la zona de exclusión, mientras que esta cifra se multiplicó por 10 en el 2010, año en el que 68 recogedores de escombros fueron heridos, 15 de los cuales eran niños. Los pescadores también sufren ataques a diario, y gran parte de los incidentes suceden fuera de la zona de exclusión. En algunos casos, las fuerzas de ocupación israelíes disparan balas y misiles contra los barcos palestinos, se encuentren en el mar o en la orilla, con el fin de destruirlos, impidiendo de esta manera la pesca. - Vea una versión interactiva de esta visita virtual. http://alhaq.mits.ps/index.php/virtual-field-visits/buffer-zone - Lea el análisis jurídico de Al-Haq acerca de la Ejecución de la Zona de Exclusión http://www.alhaq.org/publications/publications-index?task=callelement&format=raw&item_id=100&element=304e4493-dc32-44fa-8c5b-57c4d7b529c1&method=download

International Human Rights Day.... Palestinian People's Suffering Continues
 
04:48
اليوم العالمي لحقوق الإنسان... وتستمر معاناة الشعب الفلسطيني | International Human Rights Day.... Palestinian People's Suffering Continues يصادف العاشر من كانون الأول/ديسمبر، احتفال البشرية جمعاء باليوم العالمي لحقوق الإنسان، والذي أعلنته الجمعية العامة للأمم المتحدة في العام 1950، كيوم لاستعراض الجهود الدولية المحققة على صعيد احترام، تعزيز وحماية حقوق الإنسان وحرياته الأساسية على المستوى العالمي، باعتبارها جوهر مبادئ الشرعة الدولية لحقوق الإنسان التي أكدت الدول مراراً التزامها القانوني والأخلاقي، وبالتعاون مع الأمم المتحدة، على توطيدها واحترامها لكافة بني البشر. كما تتزامن هذه الذكرى مع مرور 20 عاماً على توقيع اتفاقيات أوسلو، جرى خلالها التضحية بحقوق الإنسان بذريعة تحقيق السلام والأمن، وهو أمر لم يتحقق حتى اليوم. وقد دفع الشعب الفلسطيني، وما يزال، ثمن تلك السياسات بمزيد من مصادرة الحقوق والحريات الأساسية للفلسطينيين، وفي مقدمتها استمرار التنكر لحقهم في تقرير المصير وكافة حقوقهم المدنية والسياسية، فضلاً عن حقوقهم الاقتصادية والاجتماعية والثقافية. On 10 December, the world celebrates the Human Rights Day, which was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1950 to review the international achievements in the field of universal respect, promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental liberties that are the core principles of International Bill of Human Rights, which States have repeatedly emphasized their legal and moral commitment, in cooperation with the United Nations (UN), to promote and respect for all human beings. This anniversary coincides with the 20th anniversary of signing the Oslo Accords, under which human rights were sacrificed under the pretext of achieving peace and security that have not been achieved yet. As a result, the Palestinian people have been paying the price of those policies as their fundamental liberties and rights are abused, especially the ongoing denial of their right to self determination and all their civil and political rights as well as their economic, social and cultural rights. http://www.alhaq.org/advocacy/topics/human-rights-defenders/763-international-human-rights-day-palestinian-peoples-suffering-continues http://www.alhaq.org/arabic/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=664:2013-12-10-09-20-29&catid=82:2012-05-09-07-27-45&Itemid=197

Diese Tour zeigt wie die israelische Besatzungsmacht unter Einsatz von scharfer Munition an Land wie auch auf hoher See die Pufferzone im Gazastreifen durchsetzt. Seit dem Beginn des Jahres 2010 sind Steinsammler immer häufiger unter Beschuss geraten. Al-Haq hat 2009 sieben Fälle dokumentiert, in denen Steinsammler in der Nähe der Sperrzone durch scharfe Munition verletzt wurden. Im Jahr 2010 wurden mit 68 angeschossenen Steinsammlern, 15 davon waren Kinder, zehnmal soviele Vorfälle registriert. Auch Fischer werden täglich Opfer von Attacken des israelischen Militärs, oftmals auch außerhalb des Sperrgebietes. Es wurden einige Fälle dokumentiert, in denen das israelische Militär auf hoher See wie auch an Land mit Raketen gezielt Fischerboote zerstört hat und somit die betroffenen Fischer um ihre Existenzgrundlage gebracht hat. - Um zur interaktiven Version der virtuellen Exkursion zu gelangen, folgen Sie diesem Link: http://alhaq.mits.ps/index.php/virtual-field-visits/buffer-zone - Für eine rechtliche Analyse zum Thema der Durchsetzung der Pufferzone im Gazastreifen klicken Sie auf den folgenden Link: http://www.alhaq.org/publications/publications-index?task=callelement&format=raw&item_id=100&element=304e4493-dc32-44fa-8c5b-57c4d7b529c1&method=download

Regional Seminar on Accountability and International Law  National Experiences Amman, 1 8 June 2014
 
11:53
Al-Haq Center for Applied International Law concluded in Amman, Jordan, a training seminar on "Accountability under International Law" between the 1st-8th June 2014. The training seminar targeted 24 human rights defenders and activities of non-governmental organizations from eight Arab countries interested in accountability under international law in its broader sense, focusing on criminal accountability for grave breaches of international humanitarian law, as well as accountability for human rights violations perpetrated by some international companies, and invoking the principle of universal jurisdiction and international judiciary. Speakers and trainers at the seminar included reputable professionals and experts in the field of accountability under international law. Taghreed Hikmat of the National Center for Human Rights in Jordan and a former Judge at the special tribunals for Rwanda and former Yugoslavia, Gregorio Marañon of the Spanish Embassy in Jordan, Dr. Mohammad ‘Elwan, Shaima Abu Farha of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Jordan, Nidal el Jardi of the office of The High Commissioner for Human Rights in Jordan, Adam Coogle, representative of Human Rights Watch in Jordan, and Nasser Al-Rayes, a legal consultant and researcher at Al-Haq. The training seminar provided the trainees with theoretical and practical training, including case studies from real life such as the case before the Spanish courts against the Israeli Air Force Commander accused of the assassination of Salah Shehadeh of Hamas and the killing of 18 innocent civilians members of his family, and the case filed before a Dutch court to prosecute a Dutch company (Rival) involved in providing Israel, the Occupying Power, with technical assistance and equipment used in the construction of the Wall in the occupied Palestinian territory, in addition to the case of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet.

Virtual Field Visit: Impact of the Annexation Wall - English Version
 
07:57
This video combines Al-Haq's visual documentation with satellite imagery to create virtual tours of the human rights violations commited in the occupied Palestinian territory. Each tour is designed to recreate the experience of making a field visit, providing everyone with the opportunity to see the on-the-ground reality of the occupation. This tour shows how Israeli occupying forces often use live ammunition to enforce the buffer zone in the Gaza Strip, both on land and at sea. Since the beginning of 2010, stone-collectors have been increasingly under attack by Israeli soldiers. In 2009, Al-Haq documented seven cases of rubble collectors injured by live ammunition in the vicinity of the buffer zone, whereas this number was 10 times higher during 2010, when 68 rubble collectors, of whom 15 children, were shot. Fishermen are also targeted on a daily basis with many incidents occurring outside the buffer zone. In some cases, the Israeli occupying forces fire rockets and shoot bullets at the Palestinian boats at sea or on the shore in order to destroy them, thus preventing the fishermen from working. - View an interactive version of this Virtual Field Visit. http://alhaq.mits.ps/index.php/virtual-field-visits/buffer-zone - Read Al-Haq's legal analysis of the Israel Enforcement of the Buffer Zone http://www.alhaq.org/publications/publications-index?task=callelement&format=raw&item_id=100&element=304e4493-dc32-44fa-8c5b-57c4d7b529c1&method=download
