Jordan Valley Coalition

Launched in 2017, Combatants for Peace has partnered with Machsom Watch, Taayush and other human rights groups to defend the Jordan Valley against systematic violence and displacement from Israeli forces and settlers. We have accompanied shepherds on their daily work, providing protection from violence against farming communities in the area, and led advocacy with the military court system and Israeli Civil Administration. We recently issued an open letter calling for urgent international intervention to prevent a massive forcible population transfer of Palestinians. Ongoing human rights violations from the State of Israel being actively challenged by Combatants for Peace include house demolitions; the denial of water supply; restricting access to farming land and health and education services; repeated confiscation of farming machinery, residential tents, water tanks and livestock; and increasing restrictive military checkpoints.
