Report: 2,149 Israeli violations in West Bank, Jerusalem in November

10 December, 19

Israeli occupation forces committed 2,149 violations against Palestinian civilians across the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem during November, a report by Hamas’ Media Division in the West Bank found.

In its monthly report, Hamas said that Israeli attacks against Palestinians had escalated in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem last month, noting that the home demolitions doubled in November compared to October.  

Last month saw a dramatic increase in the number of Palestinians wounded by Israeli gunfire as Israeli occupation forces attacked popular protests and activities held throughout the West Bank and Jerusalem, the report explained.

Israeli occupation forces shot and injured 261 people over the last month, including Palestinian journalist Moath Amarneh who lost his eye after being shot by an Israeli occupation solider while covering anti-occupation protests in Surif town, north of Hebron.

The report revealed that Israeli occupation forces had deliberately gunned down Omar Badawi in al-Aroub refugee camp in northern Hebron.

Palestinian detainee Sami Abu Diak died in the Ramla prison clinic as a result of a deliberate policy of medical negligence followed by the Israeli Prison Service against Palestinian detainees.  

The report documented a sharp spike in illegal settlement activity last month in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, which came in light of the US decision to consider Israeli settlement in the West Bank “not inconsistent with international law,” encouraging the Israeli occupation government to vow to annex the Jordan Valley.

During November, Israeli occupation forces stormed 470 Palestinian homes across the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.

According to the report, Hebron witnessed the highest number of Israeli violations, about 380 violations, in November, where three Palestinian civilians were shot dead by Israeli occupation soldiers.  

However, Jerusalem and Ramallah saw 337 and 283 Israeli violations against Palestinians respectively.     

Over the past month, Israeli occupation forces detained 321 people, including children, women, and ex-detainees.

The number of attacks perpetrated by Israeli settlers against Palestinians civilians jumped to 95 assaults, in addition to 158 incidents in which Israeli occupation soldiers and settlers opened fire at Palestinians.

The report documented 24 Israeli assaults against Palestinian holy sites and places of worship in November, noting that nearly 1,525 Israeli settlers had broken into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the same month.
