Israel: Quarry Shutdown Harms Palestinians


Israel: Quarry Shutdown Harms Palestinians

Human Rights Watch (HRW)

BEIT FAJAR, WEST BANK - Israeli military authorities closed down about 35 Palestinian quarries in the West Bank in late March 2016 and confiscated millions of dollars’ worth of equipment. The crackdown, which has paralyzed the quarries, puts the livelihoods of up to 3,500 workers at risk and highlights the discriminatory nature of Israeli rules for Palestinian quarries, which have been unable to obtain new licenses for more than 20 years.
