以色列/巴勒斯坦佔領區:許多家庭面臨被強制驅逐的命運

以色列/巴勒斯坦佔領區:許多家庭面臨被強制驅逐的命運

全球聲援 2011年2月-3月

在約旦河西岸(West Bank)約旦河谷(Jordan Valley)地區的哈迪迪亞(Hadidiya)與胡薩(Humsa)兩個村落的居民,不斷面臨遭強制驅逐、以及住家與生計遭到以色列軍方破壞的威脅。因為地方的水源被保留專門供給附近以色列屯墾區使用,使得他們在水源取得上嚴重受限,這以嚴重違反國際法。

自從2007年以來,哈迪迪亞與胡薩兩個村落的住家與建築物多次遭到破壞。2007年8月間,有40戶家庭的住家遭拆除。2009年6月間,有18戶家庭的住家與其他建築物被破壞,他們的儲水槽、牽引機與一輛用來取水的拖車也都被沒收。2010年間,以色列當局也多次拆除附近巴勒斯坦村落裡的建築物。

哈迪迪亞與胡薩兩個村落的生活情況非常艱苦。村民們因為無法取得建築許可,只好生活在帳篷與木屋之中,但連這個也被以色列軍方視為「非法」,而隨時可能遭到拆除。約旦河谷地區的巴勒斯坦社區居民,過去主要是仰賴牧羊與農耕維生,現在卻因為水源及土地不足而無法餵養羊群,使生計面臨威脅。

以色列當局說哈迪迪亞與胡薩兩個村落的居民沒有住在該地的權利,理由是那裡屬於「封閉的軍事區域」。這些居民的處境,只是以色列政府明顯要將巴勒斯坦人從約旦河西岸趕走的其中一個例子。這些居民非常樂見國際間的聲援與施壓,但近年來國際間的關注已日漸減少。國際間更進一步且持續不懈的行動,對他們來說非常重要。

請寫信給以色列當局,敦促他們暫緩對於哈迪迪亞與胡薩兩個村落的拆除與強制驅逐行動,要求將沒收的財物歸還給居民。請呼籲當局將水源、電力與其他基本物資帶有歧視性的限制予以消除。信件請寄:

Israel/OPT – Hadidiya and Humsa hamlets
Families face forced evictionThe residents of Hadidiya and Humsa hamlets in the Jordan Valley region of the West Bank face the constant threat of forced eviction and destruction of their homes and livelihoods by the Israeli army. Their access to water is severely restricted because local water supplies are reserved for the exclusive use of nearby Israeli settlements, which are illegal under international law.Since 2007, homes and other structures in Hadidiya and Humsa have been destroyed several times. In August 2007, 40 family homes were demolished. In June 2009, homes and other structures belonging to 18 families were destroyed and their water storage tank, a tractor and a trailer used for fetching water were confiscated. The Israeli authorities also demolished structures in nearby Palestinian villages several times during 2010.

Living conditions in Hadidiya and Humsa are extremely difficult. Forbidden from building permanent structures, villagers live in tents and shacks, which are also deemed “illegal” by the Israeli army and subject to demolition. The Jordan Valley’s Palestinian communities, who formerly subsisted mainly from shepherding and farming, are under threat owing to insufficient water or land to graze their flocks.

The Israeli authorities say the residents of Hadidiya and Humsa have no right to live in the area because it is a “closed military zone”. Their plight is just one example of the government’s apparent strategy to remove Palestinians from this area of the West Bank. Residents have welcomed international solidarity and pressure, but international attention has diminished in recent years. Further and sustained action is crucial.

Please write to the authorities, urging them to place a moratorium on demolitions and forced evictions in Hadidiya and Humsa, and to ensure that confiscated property is returned. Call for discriminatory obstructions to access to water, electricity and other basic goods to be removed. Send appeals to:
