West Bank, ALRAY - Palestinian ministry of foreign affairs and expatriates called on the international community to provide international protection for Palestinians and demands accountability for Israeli policy of demolishing Palestinian buildings.
The ministry called for in a statement on Wednesday to exert pressure on Israeli occupation, forcing it to comply with international law and United Nations resolutions.
The ministry condemned Israeli relentless policy of expansion on Palestinian lands in West Bank, and occupied Jerusalem.
It considered demolishing Palestinian houses as integral part of Judaization operations in the Holy City, imposing further restrictions on Palestinian citizens and forcibly deporting them from their city.
It stressed that all Israeli measures in occupied Jerusalem are void and illegal, and that it is a flagrant violation of international law and its resolutions.
On Wednesday, Israeli bulldozers demolished three Palestinian houses and commercial facility in Silwan, and Israeli occupation authorities forced Palestinian to self- demolish his house.
The ministry denounced expropriating Palestinian land, including 327 dunums in the vicinity of the village of Kisan, east of Bethlehem, as part of the Israeli Housing Ministry's plan to build thousands of new settlement units in and around occupied Jerusalem, in addition to the large-scale detention campaigns carried out by the occupation forces.
The ministry held Israeli occupation government the whole responsibility of the continued escalation of Israeli occupation, and its provocative racist aggression, warning of the repercussions of the consequences of the ongoing occupation measures and violations against occupied Jerusalem, its citizens, its identity, culture and civilization, which continue under the umbrella of the complete American bias to the occupation.
