On the Ground in Palestine, Dec. 10, 2017

Late last month, Israeli police arrested 17 Palestinians, accusing them of carrying out a population census in occupied East Jerusalem. The Israeli police claim this to be illegal work. The arrests are part of a campaign to limit the PA’s activities in East Jerusalem which Israel occupied in 1967 and proceeded to annex it in breach of international law.

Qusra, a village in the Nablus district of the occupied West Bank is outraged after Mahmoud Odeh, a Palestinian farmer, was killed by an Israeli settler while working on his own land on Nov. 29.

Israeli occupation forces have installed six caravans at a military outpost in Hebron city, expropriating  one and a half dunams of Palestinian land.

According to Haaretz, the Israeli High Court of Justice has denied a petition filed in 2013 by Palestinians who wanted land in the Jordan Valley that belonged to them but is being cultivated by settlers to be returned.
