Restrictions of movement: 87
The Israeli Occupation’s military restrictions on Palestinian freedom covered by this category include:
- Checkpoints at the entrances to towns and villages to prevent people entering or leaving.
- Interference with people attempting to move around towns and villages.
- Cement blocks and barbed wire on roads.
- Rubble on roads.
- Farmers prohibited from going onto their land to work it.
- Road closures to isolate areas in which the Israeli Army considers the presence of Palestinians to be ‘illegal’.
- Yasser Arafat International Airport is permanently closed and Palestinians needing to enter or leave Palestine can do so only with Israeli permission.
- Interference with access to mosques and freedom of worship.
- Wall Gates. The gates in Israel’s annexation Wall, which restrict Palestinian access to their land on both sides.
- Curfews. Anyone appearing in the street or at a window is liable to be shot dead.
- Israel enforces many of the above restrictions with the threat, or actual use, of military action as well as personal physical assault. Thus, Palestinians are faced with an all-pervasive and constant state of Israeli violence towards them.
Hebron – Israeli Occupation forces continue to enforce a military order prohibiting Palestinian vehicles from using Shalala Old Street and allowing only Israeli civilian and military vehicles on the road.
