Amidst Israel’s ongoing violations and the targeting of the Palestinian people and Palestinian civil society, Al-Haq is releasing four short informative videos that present interrelated issues caused by the illegal annexation of Jerusalem and apartheid regime imposed on Palestinians, on both sides of the ‘Green Line’.
As we observe developments on the ground in Silwan, Sheikh Jarrah and plans for settlement expansion in different parts of the city and its surroundings, we can see how the oppression of Palestinians in Jerusalem creates coercive environments to force their transfer from the city, in violation of their inalienable right to self-determination. Palestinians in Jerusalem struggle with ongoing forceful displacement, dispossession, and appropriation of their land, culture, narratives and historical sites through the application of Israel’s laws, policies, and administrative practices amounting to grave breaches of international law.
