A new report by Gisha – The Legal Center for Freedom of Movement – entitled 2017: Tightening of the Closure, summarizes the measures imposed by Israel during the past year to further limit the movement of people to and from the Gaza Strip via the Erez Crossing. The report includes new or intensified measures, introduced with little or no justification cited, and, it appears, no consideration of the impact they would have on the lives of Gaza’s residents.

In December 2017, between the 7th and 31st of the month, Israeli forces shot and killed 10 Palestinians and wounded another 408 during protests against US President Donald Trump’s declaration recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Eight of the dead were unarmed Palestinians demonstrating near the Gaza perimeter fence, none of whom posed a mortal danger to the soldiers involved.

The delegation of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) at the European Parliament denounced the provocative prosecution of the 16 year-old Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi by the Israeli authorities and submitted a question to the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini.

The Working Youth Committee of the WFTU strongly condemns the state of Israel for arresting and imprisoning of Ahed Tamimi, a 16-year-old Palestinian girl, because she resists against the Israeli occupation of her homeland. The Working Youth Committee will never accept the silencing of the struggling young people.

We demand the immediate release of Ahed Tamimi and all the Palestinian political prisoners without terms or conditions.

Free Ahed TamimiAhed Tamimi, 16 years old and a prominent activist in the occupied Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh, whose courage along with that of her family in standing up to armed Israeli soldiers, land confiscation and settlement construction stealing the resources and even the well of their village has become world-renowned, was seized by occupation soldiers who invaded the Tamimi family home on the morning of 19 December 2017.

Ahed’s father, Bassem, posted on Facebook that Ahed was targeted for arrest after she was attacked by Israeli media after she protested occupation soldiers in Nabi Saleh who shot a 14-year-old boy in the head with a rubber-coated metal bullet; the boy, Mohammed Tamimi, is in a medically-induced coma. Tamimi reported that the soldiers violently invaded the home, hitting Ahed’s mother, Nariman Tamimi, and siblings, and confiscating phones, cameras, laptop and other electronics. Ahed was taken away by the occupation soldiers to an unknown location.

Communist Party of IsraelCommunist Party of IsraelPalestinian People's PartyPalestinian People's PartyThe Palestinian People’s Party and the Communist Party of Israel severely condemn the US president’s, Donald Trump, decision from Dec 6th 2017 concerning Jerusalem, which constitutes a blatant assault on the Palestinian people’s rights, and a clear strike to the requirements of a just peace according to the UN resolutions adapted by most countries and the vast majority of the peoples worldwide.

The US policy supporting Israeli Occupation of the OPTs since 1967, will only lead to an actuation of the chaos and instability in the region and world. It rather assures the fact that the United States is part of the problem, not the solution. There is no other solution than ending the occupation and the fulfillment of the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination and, the establishment of the independent Palestinian State with East Jerusalem as its capital and the solving of the Refugees issue according to UN resolution 194.

comunistaThe Communist and Workers’ parties that sign this common appeal:

1, Strongly condemn the unacceptable position of the President of the USA, D. Trump, through which the USA recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

2. This decision strongly undermines the just struggle of the Palestinian people against Israeli occupation, for the creation and recognition of a Palestine State at the borders of 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital. Moreover, this decision, which constitutes a dangerous provocation against the peoples of the Middle East, is moving towards the direction of a more general conflagration in the region in order to satisfy the US imperialist plans.

H.E. Mr. Mogens Lykketoft, President of the General Assembly,
H.E Mr. Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations,
Excellencies, Heads of Delegations
Ladies and Gentlemen,

I come before you today from Palestine, compelled to sound the alarm about the grave dangers of what is happening in Jerusalem, where extremist Israeli groups are committing repeated, systematic incursions upon Al-Aqsa Mosque, aimed at imposing a new reality and dividing A1-Haram A1-Sharif temporally, allowing extremists, under the protection of Israeli occupying forces and accompanying ministers and Knesset members, to enter the Mosque at certain times, while preventing Muslim worshipers from accessing and entering the Mosque at those times and freely exercising their religious rights.
