Iran, Da’esh our common enemy, Prime Minister Netanyahu tells Arab states
The General Assembly moved into day three of its general debate today with a push to elevate the Palestinian legal and political leadership in the world body so as to allow for their chairing of committees and international groups, the ability to sponsor resolutions, and to proclaim 2017 as the International Year to end the Israeli Occupation.
I. Candidate countries and potential candidates
The major drivers of humanitarian vulnerability in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) remain unchanged. The situation is characterized by a protracted occupation, now in its 50th year, the systematic denial of Palestinian rights, and continuing conflict, punctuated by frequent outbreaks of violence.
7772nd Meeting (AM)
Israeli Settlement Expansion Threatens Peace Process, Some Speakers Warn, as Others Decry Lack of Unity in Palestinian Leadership
The two-State solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was at risk of being replaced by a one-State reality of perpetual violence and occupation, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the Security Council today, encouraging both sides to take the difficult steps needed to change that destructive trajectory.
Today, the Israeli Police forcibly evicted eight Palestinians, including two children, from their home in the Old City of East Jerusalem, and transferred the property to an Israeli settler organization (Ateret Cohanim), that reportedly purchased it in the 1980s. The evicted family has been renting this property since the 1930s. The home is part of a larger residential complex comprising nine apartments, eight of which were occupied by Israeli settlers in July 2010, causing the displacement of seven Palestinian households.
This booklet is directed towards the Food and Agricultural Organization Member States, UN system and all other potential partners, and sheds light on the role that resilient agriculture livelihoods can play in addressing some of the root causes of migration in protracted crises and assisting displaced populations and host communities to cope with protracted displacement. People with resilient livelihoods are better able to prevent, mitigate and adapt to the impacts of natural disasters on their lives.
Islamic Relief Worldwide’s annual report for 2015 has been published today, detailing our income, expenditure and the projects we undertook to help 8.3 million people across the globe.
Almost four million refugees and asylum seekers have fled from one conflict zone to another Oxfam said today ahead of two summits being held in New York next week (19, 20 September) aimed at addressing the refugee crisis.
In Beit Hanoun, northern Gaza, in a neighbourhood full of damaged and half-repaired houses with broad, sandy streets stretching between them, lives Jamila Hamad with her 10-year-old daughter Dina in a one-bedroom makeshift flat on the rooftop of a four-storey building. The furniture is sparse – a bed, an old cupboard and a plastic table. A small, white cat is lolling on the bed. One of the two windows has been fixed with cardboard; a curtain separates the room from the rest of the rooftop.
In the summer of 2014, Gaza experienced the most devastating round of hostilities since the beginning of the Israeli occupation in 1967. The conflict led to unparalleled human loss and destruction of infrastructure. At the peak of the conflict, 500,000 persons were displaced and sought shelter in UNRWA schools, government schools, informal shelters or with host families.
- Two years after latest hostilities, one in four children in Gaza need psycho-social support
- Decline in number of businesspeople, medical patients and humanitarian workers allowed to leave Gaza
- Sharp rise in the number of Palestinian structures in the West Bank, particularly East Jerusalem.
- Only one third of this year’s Humanitarian Response Plan funded.
The staggering economic cost of occupation: The Palestinian economy would be at least twice as large without Israeli occupation, UNCTAD report says
The economy of the Occupied Palestinian Territory could easily produce twice the gross domestic product (GDP) it generates now, while unemployment and poverty could recede significantly, according to this year's report on UNCTAD assistance to the Palestinian people.
This report draws on some recent operational experiences of the ICRC to describe the theory and practice of the ICRC’s approach to humanitarian assistance in protracted conflict. The ICRC spends about two thirds of its budget on protracted conflicts. The average length of time the ICRC has been present in the countries hosting its ten largest operations is more than 36 years. Protracted conflicts are a major source of human suffering and a cause of protracted displacement, migration and development reversals.
