Latest developments since Tuesday, 2 December
Gaza Strip: Nahal Oz fuel line, Kerem Shalom crossing and the Karni conveyor opened today (4 December) after being closed for the previous six days. The opening of these crossings is a positive step although it will have little impact unless they remain open on a regular daily basis. Equally important, in order to prevent a further deterioration of the situation, the list of imports into Gaza must immediately be expanded to include vital spare parts for maintenance and operation of the power plant, water and sanitation utilities and other critical infrastructure and basic services for the civilian population.
Hebron City: At the time of going to press, the Israeli security forces began evacuating the Al Rajabi Building settlement in the Israeli-controlled area of the city (H2). Clashes between Israeli forces and Israeli settlers are taking place, with injuries. There are reports of attacks in Hebron by groups of Israeli settlers against Palestinian residents and their property.
