Latest victim of reckless IDF open-fire policy: a 9 year-old
Amit Gilutz - Btselem - Contrary to military statement: ‘Abd a- Rahman a-Shteiwi, 9, was shot in the head with live ammunition B`Tselem investigation published today proves a soldier fired live ammunition, hitting ‘Abd a-Rahman a-Shteiwi, 9, in the head. A- Shteiwi was injured last week while playing in the entrance to a home in Kafr Qadum during the weekly demonstration in the village. Now hospitalized in critical condition, he is the latest victim of the reckless open-fire policy that allows soldiers to use live fire even when neither they nor anyone else is in any danger.
Would Israel’s left succeed in uniting ahead of elections? Read more: https://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2019/07/israel-benny-gantz-ehud-barak-amir-peretz-yachimovich-left.html#ixzz5uFR5OByh
Mazal Mualem - Al-Monitor "On the evening of July 18, it all became clear. The hints by Peretz about wanting to add figures from the right were translated into an agreement — secretly negotiated — with former Knesset member Orly Levy-Abekasis. Levy-Abekasis served for many years as legislator for Yisrael Beitenu. After leaving Yisrael Beitenu, she established her own Gesher party. But Gesher failed to pass the Knesset-entry threshold in the April elections...Peretz took an enormous gamble. By unifying with Gesher he hopes to repeast the 2006 success, when he served as party chair and managed to bring aboard quite a few soft right-wing voters. On the other hand, it is doubtful whether a similar move could take place in the Israel of 2019. All polls indicate that the Likud is a large party with supporters that are strongly attached to their leader, Prime Minister Netanyahu. More than anything, Peretz distanced his natural partners." ca

Guardian Joins Labour Anti-Semitism Smear Campaign, Censors Editorial Cartoonist
Richard Silverstein — Tikun Olam "The Guardian’s world-famous editorial cartoonist, Steve Bell, has been censored by his editors. He created a 2-part cartoon criticizing Labour MP and deputy Labour Party leader, Tom Watson, for joining forces with the UK Israel Lobby and Tories seeking to sabotage Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn. Watson has jumped on the anti-Semitism bandwagon demanding that the Party engage in a major purge of supposed anti-Semites within. The targets are almost always members of officials who’ve voiced support for Palestinian rights or criticized Israel as an apartheid state. Once again, and for what feels like the thousandth time, none of these are anti- Semitic in any way shape or form." ca
Resource: Israel`s refusal to compensate Palestinians
B`Tselem - "Over the past 20 years, Israel has taken measures to guarantee a nearly blanket exemption from its obligation under international law to pay compensation to Palestinians harmed by its security forces. In this report, B’Tselem traces the development of this practice and illustrates how it has led to a major drop in the number of claims for damages Palestinians filed in recent years. Israel’s policy reflects how little value it places on the lives, bodies and property of Palestinians living under its control." ca
Israeli demolition order on Jerusalem outskirts stokes Palestinian fears
Ynetnews - "The deadline for residents of Sur Baher to remove the buildings expired on Friday after the Supreme Court ruled in June that the structures in question violated a construction ban.Sur Baher is a Palestinian community that lies southeast of Jerusalem`s city centre. A sprawling village, it straddles the line between East Jerusalem and the West Bank. "I don`t have any other place to live. I don`t have an alternative," said Ismail Obeideh, a father of six. He said he had spent 1.2 million shekels ($338.8 million) building the family house that is now under threat. Obeideh and other Sur Baher residents said they did not need Israel`s permission to build their homes because they had received it from the Palestinian Authority, which since the Oslo interim peace deals of the 1990s exercises limited self-rule over parts of the West Bank. "Everyone here is panicking - they put all of their savings into buying an apartment or building a house," said Idris Abu Tair, 62." ca
UN Officials Call On Israel To Halt Sur Baher Demolitions
IMEMC News & Agencies - "UN officials, on Wednesday, called on Israel to halt plans for mass demolitions in the neighborhood of Sur Baher, East Jerusalem.This came in a statement by Jamie McGoldrick (Humanitarian Coordinator), Gwyn Lewis (Director of West Bank Operations for UNRWA), and James Heenan (Head of OHCHR in the occupied Palestinian territory), according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).“We are following very closely developments in the Sur Baher area of the Jerusalem governorate. Seventeen Palestinians, including nine Palestine refugees, face the risk of displacement, and over 350 others risk massive property loss, due to the Israeli authorities’ intention to demolish 10 buildings, including around 70 apartments, due to their proximity to the West Bank barrier. One month ago, following the exhaustion of almost all domestic legal remedies, Israeli forces sent the residents, a “Notice of Intent to Demolish” which will expire tomorrow, 18 July,” the UN officials said in their statement." ca

On the outside of the house, a 1.5-metre-long crack stretches from the ground. But his nephew`s home, located in the same building, was the most badly damaged. He was forced to move out with his wife and five children in early 2018 as the ground weakened and could barely hold the walls." - id
