Developed as part of an EU-sponsored project entitled “Maintaining a Lively Palestinian and Bedouin Presence in East Jerusalem Through Protective Presence, Monitoring, Documenting, and Advocacy,” these first two of a larger set of such publications zero in on the issues of “East Jerusalem Demolitions” and “Demolitions in Jerusalem Area C: Bedouin Communities,” respectively, and are based on data assembled through the World Council of Churches Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (WCC-EAPPI). 

“The overall objective of the project is to mitigate the human rights violations resulting from forced relocation, movement restrictions, and direct settler and military violence against vulnerable communities and collectives, including women and girls,” WCC-EAPPI local programme coordinator Iskandar Majlaton explains. 

“Our hope is that these materials will raise awareness and advocacy around the globe of the injustices that local Palestinian communities face on a daily basis, including in circumstances that don’t always make big international news, so that we can take steps together to advocate for justice and peace for all people in this region,” he adds.
