By Amy ChozickApril 16, 2018 12:24:28The Israeli occupation has taken root in Gaza, as the U.S. prepares to release hundreds of millions of dollars in humanitarian aid, but the new report by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PBS) says that’s not all.
The Center, based in the West Bank, is among several organizations in the region that are publishing the report, entitled “Gaza: The New Jerusalem: Israel’s New Jerusalem.”
The report was based on a series of interviews conducted by PBS and is the result of more than two years of research and interviews with Palestinians and Israeli officials.
The study examines the impact of Israeli occupation on the lives of Palestinians, and it paints a disturbing picture of the plight of Palestinians living under Israeli occupation.
It also suggests that Israel has not lived up to its obligations under the United Nations Charter.
“This report shows the true face of Israeli apartheid,” said Rashid Khalidi, director of PBS’s Palestinian Center.
“It also shows the tragic legacy of the Israeli colonization of Gaza.
In Gaza, the report notes, the Israeli-controlled West Bank is home to the largest Palestinian population in the entire Middle East, which includes Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon and the West Jerusalem neighborhoods of East Jerusalem and Nablus. “
For decades, Israeli occupation was a major factor in Palestine’s isolation and oppression, and today the occupation is the most extreme form of oppression Palestinians face in the world today.”
In Gaza, the report notes, the Israeli-controlled West Bank is home to the largest Palestinian population in the entire Middle East, which includes Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon and the West Jerusalem neighborhoods of East Jerusalem and Nablus.
It was established in 1967 to “secure the security of the Jewish people from any external threat.”
The Palestinian Center’s report finds that, by the end of 2018, more than 1.8 million people in Gaza were living under conditions of “exceptional oppression,” which the report calls “the most brutal and devastating form of state-sanctioned discrimination” against Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
The report says that the Israeli military has been the principal obstacle to ending the occupation in Gaza.
In Gaza and the surrounding West Bank , the Israeli army has occupied more than 90 percent of the territory and carried out more than 3,000 attacks on Palestinian civilians, including water, sanitation, electricity, roads, water, health, schools, schools and hospitals.
According to the report:”As of May 2018, there were more than 100 attacks against Palestinians and more than 5,000 arrests for various crimes.”
The Israeli military also “has targeted and targeted civilians in Gaza with excessive force,” the report says, including “the shooting of at least 3 civilians with live ammunition.”
According to Palestinian human rights groups, the use of disproportionate force is widespread, including: “The shelling of homes and civilian infrastructure, including schools, hospitals, and other infrastructure, and the shelling of schools, including the wounding of children.”
The Human Rights Watch said the situation was “alarming,” and “a clear violation of international humanitarian law.”
“Gaza’s ongoing conflict has left hundreds of thousands of people homeless, with limited access to basic services,” said David Kimche, Middle East director at Human Rights House.
“Israeli-controlled Israeli military forces have repeatedly targeted civilians, especially children and the elderly, with indiscriminate fire.
They have also killed, injured, and maimed hundreds of civilians.”
A number of Palestinian political leaders have called for an end to the Israeli assault on Gaza, and have called on Israel to end its violations of international law.
The Palestinian National Authority (PA) has called for international intervention in Gaza and has called on the international community to take immediate measures to halt the Israeli aggression against Palestinians.
The Palestinian Authority is also calling for an immediate halt to the use by Israel of internationally banned “hellfire missiles” and other weapons, including cluster bombs.
The U.N. has said that the blockade imposed by Israel on Gaza has been an impediment to peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, with many of the restrictions preventing humanitarian aid deliveries to Gaza, which has been under siege for more than four years.
The Israeli government has called the report a “blatant violation of human rights” and said it “will never recognize a state that systematically violates its own human rights.”
The Center for Popular Resistance, a U.K.-based human rights organization, issued a statement criticizing PBS for publishing the findings of the report.
“The Palestinian Authority will continue to fight to end the occupation and stop its systematic violations of human and civil rights in Gaza,” said PCHR’s deputy director, Amjad Sadiq.
“This report will help the PA and the international media better understand the devastating impact of the occupation on Palestinian communities and the suffering of millions.”
also issued a warning, saying it will “not accept the release of Palestinian prisoners” and that “the United Nations must not allow the release to be based on
