    Intisar Al Sheesh is Thaer?s mother, living with him and his family in a tent, three years since their house was destroyed in the last war on Gaza My name is Intisar Al Sheesh. I am 53 years old. I got married at the age of 18 and I gave birth to nine children. Our family consists of 11 members. My husband first started working in Israel, then he lost his job when Israel imposed a blockade and stopped Palestinians from Gaza from going to Israel. In the last war, we got displaced and stayed in schools. We couldn?t find food or water or anything. We took refuge in schools for fear of the planes flying above us and artillery shooting at us. After that, we searched for a place to stay in and ended up renting one. My children stayed with their cousins. Later, we couldn?t pay the rent so we had to build the tents that you see now. We are living in these tents in horror and fear because of the dogs, ants and snakes that come to us. We waited for the construction to start for three years now and still it hasn?t started yet. We are still living inside these tents and it is not a decent life. The Israelis imposed a blockade on us and we are not receiving any assistance. They cut off the electricity and there is no work for us. As you can see, everyone is sitting down doing nothing. There is no income. We hope a house will be built for us so we live inside like normal people and own things like everybody else. We hope the blockade is ended and peace prevails, so these children can grow up and work too. Photo: Ahmad Mashharawi/NRC 4 May, 2017

    Rezq Ahmed, 10, from Al Mugragha, had his family house destroyed in the last war on Gaza in 2014. He is the oldest of three sisters and two brothers We live in a tragic situation under the blockade where our water and electricity are cut off. We only get electricity for three hours a day, so I can?t watch TV, and when we want to study at night, we can?t. I mainly study in the afternoon and a little bit in the evening. I like going to school because I receive education and see my friends, who live far from me. I also play there. My friends and I buy snacks from the school?s shop and sit together. I come to school to learn because if I learn, I can find a job. I hope I can become an engineer so we can build houses for all the people. I hope the blockade will end and the environment remains clean and beautiful. What scares me the most is the shooting and the war. People become displaced and houses get razed to the ground. During the war, I was afraid of the shooting and of the Israelis. Whenever they would shoot, I would instantly get terrified. The first time the shooting started in the last war was in Ramadan and we were having our breakfast meal. Our house got bombed at night and we remained huddled in one place. We woke up in the morning and found the Israelis had broken into our place. When they entered, we sought a car and went to perform prayers. We stayed away from our home for one month. When we returned home after the war, we found that the water tanks got destroyed and the third and fourth floors were demolished. So we stayed on the ground floor. After that, we removed the rocks on the upper floors and asked for construction workers to rebuild them. I clearly remember the rockets as they hit the houses. I used to watch that on TV. When the war was going on, I would try to calm down my two siblings down, read stories to them and play with them. I would tell them that there was nothing serious; it was just a man who was launching fireworks. I am responsible for my siblings because I am the oldest. I took care of them and ensured they didn?t get injured or harmed. When I would hear the sound of a plane I would think that our house would get bombed and razed. The street and other houses would get bombed, too. When I used to hear that sound, I would get scared and go to sit in a corner. I dream of the blockade on the Gaza strip ending and the Israelis not demolishing our homes just like during the war. I also dream of living in peace and in good health. I wish Palestine would be liberated from the occupation. Photo: Ahmad Mashharawi/NRC 4 May, 2017

    Thaer (right) with his family Thaer Al Sheesh, 30, father of three girls and a four-months-old boy, from Beit Lahiya, had his house destroyed in the last war almost three years ago. He is still living in a tent with his 53-year-old mother, Intisar, and his family, as they wait for their house to be rebuilt. His baby was recently attacked by a dog which entered their tent at night Life is difficult and there is no work. There is the blockade, too. I used to work in a sewing factory. I used to earn 30-40 shekels per day. Since the blockade was imposed, work stopped and the sewing work came to halt. This has affected all youth, not just me. After that, the war started and we got displaced when our house was bombed. We took refuge in shelter schools that were open for the displaced. We stayed there during the war, which was very hard on us. Children were dying, my daughters were terrified; we were all terrified. It wasn?t just us, but the whole Gaza Strip was terrified. When the war ended, we returned home and we found that it was completely destroyed. We stayed again in schools for a while, then we rented a house for a month or two. I had no money to pay the rent, nor work. The landlord used to come to me asking for rent and I couldn?t pay him. So Ibuilt a tent and stayed in it for three years, while waiting for Gaza to be rebuilt. We?re still living in it. The crossings were closed, there was no money flowing into Gaza. It was difficult for everyone to survive. I wanted to work but where could I find a job? We used to get our basics from the mini market without paying for months, then when I receive some money after three months, it would be entirely used to pay my dues to the shop. I need milk for my children, diapers, food, beverages, cooking gas... I?d like to have a fridge and an oven, and many other things for my children, but I can?t get them. We are alive now because death hasn?t bothered to take us yet. It will be way better for us to die, as we won?t face problems anymore. Death is mercy for us, more merciful than our current life. Those who have others to back them up will live well, and those who don?t, will not. We hope the crossings would open, everyone gets whatever he or she wishes for, and that people can travel to earn money, which is better than sitting and doing nothing. We?re hoping to migrate to Athens, which is better than our life here. We?re living in a tent here among dogs, donkeys, cats, rats and other animals. Life is too difficult. I hope I can live with my wife and kids in a house just to secure shelter. I hope the UN supports Israelis and Palestinians to make peace. I hope they end the blockade and I hope peace prevails between us and Israel. We just want to live in peace, two countries without any war. Photo: Ahmad Mashharawi/NRC 4 May, 2017

We stayed there during the war, which was very hard on us. Children were dying, my daughters were terrified; we were all terrified. It wasn?t just us, but the whole Gaza Strip was terrified. When the war ended, we returned home and we found that it was completely destroyed. We stayed again in schools for a while, then we rented a house for a month or two. I had no money to pay the rent, nor work. The landlord used to come to me asking for rent and I couldn?t pay him. So Ibuilt a tent and stayed in it for three years, while waiting for Gaza to be rebuilt. We?re still living in it. The crossings were closed, there was no money flowing into Gaza. It was difficult for everyone to survive. I wanted to work but where could I find a job? We used to get our basics from the mini market without paying for months, then when I receive some money after three months, it would be entirely used to pay my dues to the shop. I need milk for my children, diapers, food, beverages, cooking gas... I?d like to have a fridge and an oven, and many other things for my children, but I can?t get them. We are alive now because death hasn?t bothered to take us yet. It will be way better for us to die, as we won?t face problems anymore. Death is mercy for us, more merciful than our current life. Those who have others to back them up will live well, and those who don?t, will not. We hope the crossings would open, everyone gets whatever he or she wishes for, and that people can travel to earn money, which is better than sitting and doing nothing. We?re hoping to migrate to Athens, which is better than our life here. We?re living in a tent here among dogs, donkeys, cats, rats and other animals. Life is too difficult. I hope I can live with my wife and kids in a house just to secure shelter. I hope the UN supports Israelis and Palestinians to make peace. I hope they end the blockade and I hope peace prevails between us and Israel. We just want to live in peace, two countries without any war. Photo: Ahmad Mashharawi/NRC 4 May, 2017

    Intisar Al Sheesh is Thaer?s mother, living with him and his family in a tent, three years since their house was destroyed in the last war on Gaza My name is Intisar Al Sheesh. I am 53 years old. I got married at the age of 18 and I gave birth to nine children. Our family consists of 11 members. My husband first started working in Israel, then he lost his job when Israel imposed a blockade and stopped Palestinians from Gaza from going to Israel. In the last war, we got displaced and stayed in schools. We couldn?t find food or water or anything. We took refuge in schools for fear of the planes flying above us and artillery shooting at us. After that, we searched for a place to stay in and ended up renting one. My children stayed with their cousins. Later, we couldn?t pay the rent so we had to build the tents that you see now. We are living in these tents in horror and fear because of the dogs, ants and snakes that come to us. We waited for the construction to start for three years now and still it hasn?t started yet. We are still living inside these tents and it is not a decent life. The Israelis imposed a blockade on us and we are not receiving any assistance. They cut off the electricity and there is no work for us. As you can see, everyone is sitting down doing nothing. There is no income. We hope a house will be built for us so we live inside like normal people and own things like everybody else. We hope the blockade is ended and peace prevails, so these children can grow up and work too. Photo: Ahmad Mashharawi/NRC 4 May, 2017

    Background: In Wadi Al Jimel, a community of Palestinian Bedouin refugees from Beer Sheva is facing the threat of forced eviction, home demolitions and continuous settler violence from the nearby settlement of Maale Adumim. The community is located in Area C, under full Israeli security and administrative control. The community is at risk of forcible transfer due to a ?relocation? plan located in the area advanced by the Israeli authorities. The community exists in a high security area, movement restrictions are imposed to people when transporting on bypass road, and when herders graze their animals in access restricted areas near the settlement and the wall. In 2002, the community was separated from Jerusalem area by the separation wall. Moussa Al Sayayleh We?ve been living here in Wadi Al Jimel since 1983. We started with a small group and we grew to the numbers you see now. We have 28 or 30 families here, each consists of six or seven persons and more in some families. We face many problems from the civil management due to the expulsion, the wall and the street that will be closed now. The life of Bedouins here is not different from the one of Bedouins in Saudi Arabia or Jordan or Palestine. Bedouins rely on livestock and they move with them in order to raise them and to find water. Wherever it is convenient for them and their livestock, they remain there. Traveling and moving doesn?t bother them. But we have been suffering from expulsion, confiscation and settlements ever since Israel came into being and occupied the land and kicked the Bedouins out. Bedouins in Palestine now do not dare leave the place they?ve staying in for 10 or 50 years, because if they do so, they will not be able to return to it. So their life has become a sedentary one because they are obliged to stay in their own area and not to travel. The Bedouins? life was way better before than it is now. They used to go to whichever place they wanted and live where it was suitable for their livestock and where there was water. This does not work now because Israel turned the lands into military areas or a natural reserve or they banned Bedouins from passing by or living there. Life has changed drastically. A good part of us depends on livestock; we have around 700 sheep. Others, the youth work in the settlements, and others work in agriculture. They plant wheat and barley, in addition to vegetables in winter and summer. Our life is not perfect, but here we are standing and enduring, as there is no alternative The latest problem came up when a person from the civil management came to us several times and took photos of our houses and gave around eight families a warning to head to the civil management. A committee would be there to process their status and give them permits, or raze the houses or have them evicted from there. So we hired a lawyer and he is working on it. The Norwegian Refugee Council assigned us a lawyer to guide us and help us solve our case. We?re facing the problem of forced evictions and expulsion from our land. If they remove us from here, that?s our death sentence. They gave us two options to move, and both are not suitable. It would be like living in a prison, with no place to raise our livestock. They want this land to add it to their settlement. They want to pass a street through here. They want to place us in one corner and build a wall around us. I will not leave here even if there was an agreement. We want the land to live on it and plant it, not to build a villa. Having caravans is enough for us. We used to live in a Bedouin tent which is good for us. Let us keep the land without court trials, expulsion and demolition. If they come and raze my house, I am ready to set up a tent, but I will not go where they want to force me to go. I would rather die here than go there. We are not afraid.

    Moussa Al Sayayleh with one of his children We?ve been living here in Wadi Al Jimel since 1983. We started with a small group and we grew to the numbers you see now. We have 28 or 30 families here, each consists of six or seven persons and more in some families. We face many problems from the civil management due to the expulsion, the wall and the street that will be closed now. The life of Bedouins here is not different from the one of Bedouins in Saudi Arabia or Jordan or Palestine. Bedouins rely on livestock and they move with them in order to raise them and to find water. Wherever it is convenient for them and their livestock, they remain there. Traveling and moving doesn?t bother them. But we have been suffering from expulsion, confiscation and settlements ever since Israel came into being and occupied the land and kicked the Bedouins out. Bedouins in Palestine now do not dare leave the place they?ve staying in for 10 or 50 years, because if they do so, they will not be able to return to it. So their life has become a sedentary one because they are obliged to stay in their own area and not to travel. The Bedouins? life was way better before than it is now. They used to go to whichever place they wanted and live where it was suitable for their livestock and where there was water. This does not work now because Israel turned the lands into military areas or a natural reserve or they banned Bedouins from passing by or living there. Life has changed drastically. A good part of us depends on livestock; we have around 700 sheep. Others, the youth work in the settlements, and others work in agriculture. They plant wheat and barley, in addition to vegetables in winter and summer. Our life is not perfect, but here we are standing and enduring, as there is no alternative The latest problem came up when a person from the civil management came to us several times and took photos of our houses and gave around eight families a warning to head to the civil management. A committee would be there to process their status and give them permits, or raze the houses or have them evicted from there. So we hired a lawyer and he is working on it. The Norwegian Refugee Council assigned us a lawyer to guide us and help us solve our case. We?re facing the problem of forced evictions and expulsion from our land. If they remove us from here, that?s our death sentence. They gave us two options to move, and both are not suitable. It would be like living in a prison, with no place to raise our livestock. They want this land to add it to their settlement. They want to pass a street through here. They want to place us in one corner and build a wall around us.

  • Norwegian Refugee Council
    Background: A small community of farmers living in Jourat Al Khiel, which falls in Area C, already once displaced from their land nearby, has been facing continuous settler violence and the threat of destruction of their homes. Their worst fears came to reality last August when Israeli soldiers turned up with bulldozers early in the morning and destroyed their homes, water wells and sheds for their livestock. NRC is assisting the community with legal aid, representing them in Israeli courts, in a bid to stop further property destruction and displacement of this vulnerable community. Ibrahim Mustafa Al Shalaldeh We used to live in Sarara, which they call Asfar. We had water wells, caves and shelter for summer and winter. The Israelis came in the ?80s and kicked us out, so we moved here. We didn?t have water, shelter or anything here. We started building here, building our water wells, planting trees, and made the land a productive one. It was good to live here, we drank from the wells, until the day the Jews gave us an order to stop building. We hired a lawyer who proceeded with the case, but he didn?t tell us that they would raze the structures to the gruond. All of a sudden we saw them coming to demolish the houses. This happened in August 2016. They razed our houses. One month and a half later, they came to destroy the water wells. I told them: ?Birds and dogs drink from them. Every living creature drinks from them. Why do you want to destroy the water wells?? They replied: ?We have an order to demolish them.? I used to have shelter for the livestock of 270 metres. We had a pigeon shed that was razed. We had a small room for rabbits and they razed it too, with the rabbits and pigeons inside them. What can you say except that they want everyone to be dead except for them. They don?t wish life for other people. We used to have olive trees here, but they got destroyed by the bulldozer. We don?t have any other land except this one. Where shall we go now? If we had another piece of land, we would have moved to it, but we don?t. If they kick us out, we will stay on other people?s lands and pay them rent. They used to come to us at night around midnight and take us out. It was freezing cold. They would make us sit outside and they start searching inside the house. They would dump all our clothes on top of each other.

    Background: A small community of farmers living in Jourat Al Khiel, which falls in Area C, already once displaced from their land nearby, has been facing continuous settler violence and the threat of destruction of their homes. Their worst fears came to reality last August when Israeli soldiers turned up with bulldozers early in the morning and destroyed their homes, water wells and sheds for their livestock. NRC is assisting the community with legal aid, representing them in Israeli courts, in a bid to stop further property destruction and displacement of this vulnerable community. Ibrahim Mustafa Al Shalaldeh We used to live in Sarara, which they call Asfar. We had water wells, caves and shelter for summer and winter. The Israelis came in the ?80s and kicked us out, so we moved here. We didn?t have water, shelter or anything here. We started building here, building our water wells, planting trees, and made the land a productive one. It was good to live here, we drank from the wells, until the day the Jews gave us an order to stop building. We hired a lawyer who proceeded with the case, but he didn?t tell us that they would raze the structures to the gruond. All of a sudden we saw them coming to demolish the houses. This happened in August 2016. They razed our houses. One month and a half later, they came to destroy the water wells. I told them: ?Birds and dogs drink from them. Every living creature drinks from them. Why do you want to destroy the water wells?? They replied: ?We have an order to demolish them.? I used to have shelter for the livestock of 270 metres. We had a pigeon shed that was razed. We had a small room for rabbits and they razed it too, with the rabbits and pigeons inside them. What can you say except that they want everyone to be dead except for them. They don?t wish life for other people. We used to have olive trees here, but they got destroyed by the bulldozer. We don?t have any other land except this one. Where shall we go now? If we had another piece of land, we would have moved to it, but we don?t. If they kick us out, we will stay on other people?s lands and pay them rent. They used to come to us at night around midnight and take us out. It was freezing cold. They would make us sit outside and they start searching inside the house. They would dump all our clothes on top of each other. They would undress us and search in our clothes under the rain claiming our clothes could contain something dangerous. A month ago they came to give us a warning letter telling us not to build anything. We can?t build a thing because they?ll demolish everything.

Ahmed Mohamed Mustafa Al Shalaldeh We grew up on the land over there called Al Sarara. In 1983 they (the Israelis) started building on it. They said it?s a military camp and it will not include any settlers. Then they kicked us out and we came here. At first we set up tents. We couldn?t build as we were afraid to do so. We lived in tents for 15 years. Then we built some rooms. We built houses that included two bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen. We need to live. We don?t have electricity or water. In 2014 they distributed leaflets, then they served us eviction notices. They asked us to apply for permits, which we did through our lawyer. In August 2016, at 5.30am, they came with bulldozers. We asked them what was going on, they told us to get out of the house. We told them we had applied for permits and had the documents needed, but they said they were not aware of our documents and that they had orders to take down our buildings. We told them we needed to get our clothes, but they said they?d get them for us. They brought us some clothes and demolished our houses with all the other belongings inside. They demolished seven houses. People were displaced for four months. They had no tents or shelter. Some moved to the village and others set up some kind of shelter. Then we were given these caravans by aid groups. We?d love to live in peace. This land belongs to us. We are living off of it. We have livestock and we farm our land and we live off what we grow. When settlers came here we offered them food and water. We don?t know what brought them here but we showed them respect. Why? Because we want to live in peace, we don?t want violence. Yet they assault us while we?re herding our sheep and round people up. Once they caught my brother and they tied his hands and forced him to sit in the sun for 10 hours. We?re very upset now. If you and your children had to sleep in one room, that is not normal. We wanted to build another room for the children, but they told us to be patient or we?d get everything demolished again. If one cannot build on their property, why would they need it? Even if they demolished our homes 10, 20, 100 times, we will stay here. We will not leave this place. There is no place to go to. We hope the world and the European countries to open their eyes to the living conditions of the Palestinian people. We?re living in humiliation and disrespect. We don?t have dignity here. We wish to live in a dignified life in peace. Photo and story: Karl Schembri/NRC 1 May, 2017
