Women’s demonstrations and human rights violations.
Please see attached here the Abu Dis human rights report for July 2020. It is a difficult read…
“People in Abu Dis are trying to get on with their lives in a normal way but their lives are systematically interrupted by movement restrictions, separation from family members, economic and environmental problems. People are becoming accustomed to violence from the Israeli army that every month leaves a number of boys (usually) injured, families, including those with babies, suffering from tear gas, and sees a number of people violently arrested or returned home suffering from their time in jail and their families suffering from fines of thousands of shekels.”
Although there was no annexation this month, July in Abu Dis saw women’s demonstrations calling for the return of the body of Ahmed Eriqat, killed on 23rd June, wanting to bury him, the demolition of a house under construction and the extension of the administrative detention for a prisoner who had been given Israel’s word that he would be released in July.July 2020 human rights report
