In early May, the Israeli High Court approved the forced eviction of a collection of Palestinian communities in the Masafer Yatta area, in the south of the West Bank.
In effect, the court approved a war crime.
If this crime is carried out, it will be the largest forcible transfer of Palestinians from their land since 1967, when the Israeli military took over the West Bank and Gaza.
These expulsions and demolitions can happen at any time, with no notice.
Indeed, they have begun already! Demolitions and horrific displacement are underway now. In May and June, Israeli soldiers came to Masafer Yatta with bulldozers. They forced Palestinians out and destroyed their homes in front of their eyes.
We know that over 1,200 Palestinians, including 500 children, are threatened with the destruction of their homes and communities. And that number may be more than double. We have received word that there are neighboring communities Israel may be targeting also, bringing the number to 2800 or more men, women and children in danger of losing their homes and communities.
The U.S. Congress and the Biden administration have power to pressure Israel and prevent this. But they will only take action if we demand it.
Send a message to your legislators in Congress now, to speak out publicly against this ethnic cleansing and to urge the Biden administration to use all its leverage through diplomatic and legal measures.
