The past month have been marked by extreme violence by the Israeli occupation and apartheid regime over the entirety of the occupied Palestinian territory, whether it be against Palestinians in Jerusalem, the West Bank, Gaza, or the 1948 occupied territories. The events span restrictions of movement near Damascus Gate, the storming of Al-Aqsa mosque and assault of worshippers, and the imminent threat of forced expulsion of eight Palestinian families from Sheikh Jarrah, which in turn led to the Israeli occupation’s mass repression of Palestinian solidarity movements across the oPt. To compound upon this, Israeli bombardment of Gaza targeted civilians and civilian infrastructure by carrying out indiscriminate and disproportionate use of force.
