UN urged register Palestinian damages from Israeli wall
Palestine-Israel-UN, Politics, 7/10/2006
Four human rights centers condemned Israel's continued illegal construction of the Wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, including East Jerusalem and, requesting that the UN Secretary-General accelerate the establishment of a register of damage caused to all natural or legal persons by the construction of the Wall.
In a letter sent to the United Nations, on the second anniversary of The Hague's ruling which confirmed the illegality of the Apartheid Wall Israel is building, Al-Haq Center for Human Rights, Palestinian Center for Human Rights, Adalah, the Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel and Al-Mezan Center requested the President of the General Assembly to reconvene its tenth emergency special session in order to expand the scope of the register of damage to include the gathering of evidence of material and non-material damage.
The letter also requested that the UN Security Council take action under Chapter VII of the UN Charter with regard to Israel's noncompliance with international law as outlined in the ICJ Advisory Opinion.
As recalled by numerous United Nations resolutions, reads the letter, international law prohibits the acquisition of territory by force, rendering void any attempts to annex land.
In addition to noting several third-party state obligations to ensure Israel's respect for international law with regard to the Wall, the ICJ held that "the United Nations, and especially the General Assembly and the Security Council, should consider what further action is required to bring to an end the illegal situation resulting from the construction of the wall and the associated regime, taking due account of the present Advisory Opinion."
