  1. Stop the Wall
  2. Dismantle parts already built
  3. Return all lands confiscated for the Wall
  4. Compensate for all losses.

22\4\2014 The area of Tulkarm has become synonymous for the number of recycling plants established within the occupied West Bank. The Nitzanei Shalom settlement industrial zone, which Israeli’s refer to as ‘Buds of Peace’, built upon the town of Tulkarm in the early eighties had previously been confiscated by military order, taking thousands of acres of land.

20\4\2014 Although negotiations continue between the Palestinian and Israeli sides, there has been no change on the daily practices Israeli government and settlers implement in the occupied territories. Reports indicate that, in March, the Israeli government approved the building of 2840 housing units in the city of Jerusalem and the rest of the West Bank.

Deir Istya is an old historic village with architecture and city walls from the Mamluk era, the Roman and Byzantine times and the Ottoman Empire. It is located in the West Bank C-area, meaning that Israel has full security and civil control over the area. It is one of the oldest villages in the West Bank. Approximately 3500 persons inhabit the village. There are currently ten settlements that encircle this area. Five of them are on the land of Deir Istya, while the others claim land from surrounding villages. The village faces many problems, particularly during the season of olive harvest.

The town of Beit Jala lies in Bethlehem district in the West Bank, governed by it’s own municipality and mayor. It is both A-area (approximately 25 per cent) and C-area (the remaining percentage of Beit Jala-land)[1]. Traditionally, the inhabitants of Beit Jala consisted of 80 per cent Christians, but today this figure is much less. The area is considered of great religious importance, but Beit Jala is currently facing many difficulties concerning the Apartheid Wall.
