Paläestinenser Vertreibung nimmt zu

By Phil Bainbridge

March 11, 2024 - Gewalttätigkeit der Siedler und Erweiterung ihrer Siedlungen im West-Jordanland nimmt stärker zu, vor allem nach den Terrorangriffen auf Israel durch die Hamas am 7. Okt. Damit wird laut UN Bericht riskiert, dass eine tragfähige Lösung für einen Palästinenserstaat kaum zu finden sein wird.

Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories have expanded to an additional 24,300 housing units, while settler violence peaked at an average of eight incidents per day in the month after the attacks. The report which will be presented to the Human Rights Council in Geneva in late March but Israel says it ignores the deaths of 36 Israelis in 2023.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Turk warned that the growth of Israeli settlements amounted to the transfer by Israel of its population into an occupied territory, which he described as a war crime, while the Biden administration has criticised the settlements as “inconsistent” with international law.
