A Week Under Occupation

September 29, 2003

Below is a partial list of attacks on the Palestinian people in the occupied West Bank and Gaza carried out by the Israeli army during the week of September 18-25.

In addition, on September 22, Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz said that the "security fence" which Israel is building to encircle the occupied territories and confiscate more Palestinian land will be completed within the next 12 months. Part of this Wall will be built in east Jerusalem, cutting at least 50,000 Palestinians off from the rest of the West Bank. As construction of the Wall continues, Israeli officials are in Washington, D.C. reviewing their plans with George Bush and the U.S. government which finances the occupation.
