PA warns of Israeli plan to Judaise Ibrahimi Mosque in HebronPNN - Palestine News Network - "In a statement, the ministry said that a group of Jewish Israeli settlers had published a short film showing the mosque flooded with rainwater, stressing that this has never happened. The statement noted that this film also included calls to build a roof to protect it in summer and winter, adding that “this is false information”. According to the ministry, the only way to protect the mosque is to allow maintenance work to be carried out to parts that have been damaged by the settlers themselves." - id 17/1/2018

PALESTINE PULSE The Palestinian village with only three residents Ibrahim Abdelhadi - Al-Monitor - To the southwest of the town of al- Khader, 5 kilometers (3 miles) from the city of Bethlehem, lies Shoshahla village located at the foot of a mountain surrounded by five Israeli settlements: Sidi Bouaz, Eliezer, Efrat, Neve Daniel and Kfar Etzion. Only three people — a man, his wife and their daughter — live in Shoshahla and continue to cling to a land they inherited from their ancestors. This small family, which was forced to migrate decades ago under Israeli threats, chose to return to Shoshahla in the early 1990s and is refusing to leave again despite the primitive life they lead.- rh 17/1/2018

Could settlers stay in a future Palestinian state?Akiva Eldar - Al Monitor - "It pains me to see good people, with whom we enjoy such good neighborly ties, depicted as monsters because some radical `hilltop youths` [nickname for radical-right youth settlers] entered their home with the sole intention of setting off war." - id6/12/2017

December 2, 2017 Umm al-Amad, Ma‘inDavid Shulman - Touching Photographs - On the way to Umm al-Khair we stop at Ma‘in and climb the hill to where the owners were digging shallow pits for planting baby olive trees, a few days back. The settlers of Avigail, across the highway, must have summoned the soldiers. This time they arrested ten Palestinians, accusing them of digging in an “archaeological site.” There is no square meter in Palestine-Israel that is not an archaeological site. A new and ominous pretext, potentially useful for stealing land. They kept their prisoners all day and released them in the evening. This story, like Umm al-Amad’s, isn’t over yet. One thing I can say. Things are getting worse.-rh6/12/2017

Made in Israel: Exploiting Palestinian Land for Treatment of Israeli WasteB’Tselem - Abusing its status as an occupying power, Israel has set out less stringent environmental regulations in industrial zones in settlements than in Israel`s own territory, and even offers the polluters financial incentives such as tax breaks and government subsidies. There are at least fifteen Israeli waste treatment facilities in the West Bank. Most of the waste they process is produced in Israel. Six of the facilities handle hazardous waste, including infectious medical waste, used oils and solvents, metals, batteries and electronic industry byproducts – and one which processes sewage sludge. International standards in this field address the transfer of waste from the territory of one sovereign state to another. However, transferring waste into an occupied territory is a far graver issue, as residents of an occupied territory cannot oppose the decisions of the occupying power, and are entirely at its mercy.
