Who’s the real criminal here?
This morning, 4 July 2018, Israel continued implementing its policy of transferring Palestinian communities: In Khan al-Ahmar the Civil Administration began paving an access road to facilitate transferring the community. In the nearby Abu a-Nuwar, the CA demolished 9 homes and 3 farm buildings, leaving 62 people homeless. The CA came to Susiya, apparently to plan the demolition of 7 structures. Israel claims it is merely enforcing the law, on building without permits. But the residents are not criminals: Israel denies them any way of obtaining construction permits and creates unbearable living conditions, hoping they leave - ostensibly of their own volition - so that it can take over their lands. Transferring communities in a war crime; no court ruling or military order can whitewash it.
