Cisgiordania: ruspe al lavoro, Israele vuole il muro di Cremisanesteri.diariodelweb.it

Sono partite le ruspe israeliane per la costruzione di un muro nella valle di Cremisan, nonostante le proteste della popolazione palestinese e una sentenza della corte suprema d’Israele che nell’aprile scorso aveva bloccato il progetto al termine di una lunga battaglia legale.

A spianare la strada ai cingolati è sopraggiunto, lo scorso 8 luglio, un ‘nulla osta’ della stessa Alta corte precedentemente espressasi in difesa dei palestinesi e per la salvaguardia dell’area, che accoglie, oltre ai terreni di 58 famiglie cristiane, anche un monastero e un convento salesiani, con annessa una scuola elementare.

Con la costruzione del muro, le due strutture salesiane resteranno in territorio palestinese, mentre i terreni delle famiglie cristiane finiranno nella parte israeliana.

Israele ha dichiarato che l’espansione della barriera di cemento armato è dovuta a motivi di sicurezza, ma per molti l’obiettivo di Tel Aviv è quello di collegare le colonie – illegali secondo il diritto internazionale – di Gilo e Har Gilo, separandole dalla cittadina palestinese di Beit Jala.

Pressenza – Cisgiordania: ruspe al lavoro, Israele vuole il muro di Cremisan.

Palestinians build a bridge over the separation wall

The non-violent direct action is in protest of restrictions on access to the Aqsa Mosque that Israel places on Palestinian worshipers from the West Bank.

Some 50 Palestinian and international activists used two make-shift bridges to cross the separation wall between Qalandiya and northern Jerusalem Friday morning. They also cut razor wire adjacent to the wall.

The non-violent direct action was in protest of the restrictions on access to the Aqsa Mosque that Israel places on Palestinians from the West Bank.

Separately, following a tripartite meeting between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jordan’s King Abdullah about tensions on the Temple Mount and in Jerusalem, Israel Police announced that it was suspending the ban on worshippers under the age of 50.

That change, however, will not affect the ability of West Bank Palestinians to reach the Old City of Jerusalem, where the mosque is located. Decisions to grant entry permits for West Bank residents are made by the army and Shin Bet.

At the Hizme checkpoint, used by West Bank settlers to commute to Jerusalem, Palestinians attempted to march toward the holy city. They blocked Israeli traffic and were eventually dispersed by soldiers and police.
