Heads of missions and delegates from the European Union, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden and the United Kingdom visited the Hamsa Al-Baqi group near Tubas in the Jordan Valley. This visit comes two days after the Israeli forces crushed more than eighty buildings in the network.

75% of the network’s residents, including 41 youngsters, have lost their homes, making this the largest convincing exchange to take place over the last ten years in Area C of the West Bank.

Negotiators met dwellers as representatives of the dynamic shared community assemblies in the network. Neighborhood residents reported to negotiators that the Israeli authorities had destroyed 84 buildings, including private and professional offices, and clearance.

This is the largest single destruction in the past decade in Area C of the West Bank. Because of this massive destruction, 11 Palestinian families with 41 young men were left impoverished. This is especially certain as we are currently moving into a cooler winter in the midst of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Part of the destroyed structures were funded by the European Union, its member states, and other contributing countries.

The astonishing effect is especially brutal on young men, women and families, far from the law and fundamental freedoms around the world.

Such activities are not exclusively inconsistent with Israel's obligations as a participating power. "They also questioned Israel's commitment to the two-state arrangement," said European Union representative Sven Cohn von Burgsdorf.

The European Union has consistently demanded compensation or compensation for the mercy resources supported by the European Union that were destroyed, destroyed or seized by Israel.


This new destruction comes when various different networks face the threat of demolition and demolition orders. The Palestinian School reminds of the Ras al-Tin people group in the pivotal West Bank, which was jointly funded by the European Union, the United Kingdom and other donor countries.

There are now 52 Palestinian schools at risk of destruction. As is repeated in the previous conclusions of the Council of the European Union, the European Union and like-minded countries require guarantees from young people, including ensuring their right to education in a protected and safe school climate. Training is a basic common freedom that must be guaranteed and preserved.

The European Union and countries with similar investments encourage Israel to end the demolition of Palestinian property. The continuation of this approach violates international law, and undermines the viability of the two-state arrangement and the possibility of continuing harmony in the region.
