PHROC Raises Serious Concerns Regarding the Development of Master Plans Requiring Israeli Approval in Area C of the West Bank
31، Dec 2014

European-Union-011The Palestinian Human Rights Organisations Council (PHROC) calls on all third States and the State of Palestine to carry out thorough risk assessments before funding or facilitating the development of Master Plans in Area C that require prior Israeli approval. By basing the development of these Master Plans on Israeli Civil Administration (ICA) approval, donors are implicitly recognising Israel’s unlawful planning regime in Area C and risk furthering the associated violations of international law, including the construction and expansion of settlements, the destruction of Palestinian property, the forcible transfer of Palestinian residents, the violation of various human rights obligations and the acquisition of territory through the use of force.
