Europeans for al-Quds: 1 killed, 5 injured, and 132 detainees in Jerusalem during June

The European for al-Quds organization has confirmed that Israeli violations in the occupied city of Jerusalem have seen a significant increase, with 860 violations documented during last June, more than one and a half times the number recorded in the previous month.

The organization said in its monthly report that the violations were distributed across 16 categories of human rights violations. The highest categories were raids at 39.7% and arrests at 15.3%.

The report documented 55 incidents of direct shooting and assault by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) in the neighborhoods of occupied Jerusalem.

The report also documented the injury of 15 citizens, as well as at least 32 citizens being beaten and tortured, most of them during the invasion of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The report also documented the violations and attacks committed by IOF against Palestinians during June. The report states that the IOF carried out 341 raids on Palestinian towns and neighborhoods in Jerusalem, arresting 132 Palestinians, including 37 children and 5 women, and summoning 23 others. In addition, 19 were placed under house arrest.

The report also documented 26 demolitions during which the occupying forces destroyed 6 housing units, including houses and apartments. Among them were 5 demolitions that forced owners to self-demolish, in addition to the demolition of 6 facilities.

The report also monitored 9 projects and decisions of a settlement and Judaization nature, including the approval of a plan to construct settlement roads, the construction of 400 settlement units on the lands of Qalandia, a proposed law to divide Al-Aqsa Mosque, a plan to build 1,700 settlement units in Beit Hanina, the completion of construction work on the “Jawhara Synagogue” in Israel, and the establishment of a settlement on the lands of the town of Jabal Mukaber, as well as an outpost to the east of the village of Mikhmas.

During the month, 3,787 settlers, accompanied by tens of thousands of tourists, entered Al-Aqsa Mosque, which was repeatedly raided for 23 days.

Israeli authorities issued 21 deportation orders, including 7 deportation orders from Al-Aqsa Mosque, 3 from Jerusalem, 6 from the Old City, and 1 from the Damascus Gate.

The report documents 18 attacks carried out by settlers that resulted in injuries to many Palestinians in addition to performing Talmudic rituals.

The report also monitored 56 fixed and flying checkpoints, 3 street closures, 3 travel bans, and 2 media freedom restrictions.

The report concluded that the IOF focused this month on attempts to Judaize the city of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque. The most concerning actions included the revelation of a plan to divide Al-Aqsa Mosque, repeated storming of the Bab Al-Rahma chapel with attempts to close it, ongoing demolitions and destruction, and the implementation of settlement projects as part of a systematic policy to impose a fait accompli. These actions perpetuate the Judaization of the city, alter its geographical and demographic character, and continue the policy of apartheid.

Europeans for al-Quds Organization warned that these practices seek to perpetuate dealing with Al-Aqsa Mosque after it is an existing temple, by reviving all the peculiarities of the temple that have been destroyed by its collapse according to the religious narrative, a danger that transcends the temporal and spatial division of Al-Aqsa by jumping into the conflict over the nature and identity of Al-Aqsa.
