JCER calls for rescinding Israeli military orders banning Palestinians of Jerusalem from entering West Bank

Print PDF

Jerusalem - Israeli occupation authorities have started recently to prohibit Palestinian activities of occupied Jerusalem from entering the West Bank, as part of a new policy that exacerbate the infringements on the right to free movement.

The prohibition orders against Palestinians of East Jerusalem coincided with the Palestinian bid to UN for full membership of the state of Palestine last September.

Among the Palestinian activists who were issued such prohibition entries to the West Bank, which were signed by the Israeli military commanders: Abdullatif Gheith of al-Dameer human rights organization, ex-prisoner Ya'coub Abu Asab, Mahmoud Abbasi and Yasser Hamdan. Some of the activists were banned from entering West Bank for six months.

JCSER would like to note that according to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, "Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of the each state," Article 13 (1).

Moreover, according to Article 12 (1) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, "Everyone lawfully within the territory of a State shall, within the territory, have the right to liberty of movement and freedom to choose his residence."

Nevertheless the right of freedom is a prerequisite for the exercise of other rights such as the right to work, adequate standards of living, health, education in addition to the right of protection of family life, as slated in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

JCSER would like to draw international attention to this blatant violation of the basic rights of the Palestinian residents of Jerusalem who are considered as protected persons under international law. It also calls upon the Israeli government, the occupying power, to honor its obligations in this regard.

The center also requests members of the international community to meet their obligations in respecting and ensure respecting the four Geneva Conventions, namely the fourth convention relative to the protection of civilians persons in time of war.
