JLAC Succeed in Preventing the Demolition of Froush Beit Dejan Village’s Main Water Reservoir: Perseverance and Steadfastness Prevail
 
The Israeli Civil Administration has retracted the intention of demolishing the main and only water reservoirin Beit Dajan village after the petition submitted by JLAC on behalf of the village’s residents to the Israeli Supreme Court.

In February 2015, the council of Beit Dajan village has received a stop working and demolishing order for the village’s water reservoir that has a capacity of more than 500 cubic meters, and is considered the main source of water for more than 1000 residents, on the grounds of a lack of legal permit. Afterwards, the village’s council sought the help of JLAC for legal counseling.

JLAC succeed in canceling a Military Order to close a commercial store in Hebron
 
Jerusalem Legal Aid and Human Rights Center succeeds in obtaining an order from the Legal Advisor of the Israeli Government to reopen Al-Shaheed stores in Hebron that were closed by a military order on March 15th, 2016.
Based on regulation 129 of the Emergency Law, and clause 319 of the military orders, the military commander issued a closing order against the shops of Mr. Jaweed Jaber, after suspecting that two of his employees (Qasem Jaber and Ameer Al-Jundi) held an attack near Keryat Arba’ settlement on March 14th 2016.
An objection against the closing order was submitted by adv. Fatima Nasser Eddin- Tubji to the military commander. The objection relied on several arguments, in which Tubji proved that the stores were not owned by the employees, but the ownership was to a third person; Mr. Jaweed Jaber, and therefore issuing such an order to someone who is irrelevant to the attacks is unreasonable and lacks any grounds of justice.
