Act Now to Save Susiya – Stop the Expulsion!

On May 5 2015, Israel’s High Court of Justice ruled to allow the army to demolish the entire village of Susya and expel its residents, numbering around 340 men, women and children, to Area A of the Occupied Territories. Considered a highly unusual move, the court refused to grant an interim order freezing the implementation of the demolition until the court hears the discussion on the appeal to authorise the village. The opposition of the state to the interim order request suggests that it intends to demolish the village in the near future.
