Egypt 'violated international law' through mass home demolitions along Sinai border with Gaza (HRW)

27/09/2015
Door de huisverwoestingen zijn 3200 families dakloos gemaakt.

The large-scale destruction of more than 3,200 buildings in Rafah as part of countering the threat of smuggling tunnels was probably disproportionate, says Human Rights Watch

           


The Egyptian army created a wide buffer zone in the border town of Rafah in the north of the Sinai Peninsula 

 


The Egyptian army may have broken international law by forcibly evicting more than 3,000 families as part of its campaign against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), a monitoring group has said.


The government of President Abdel Fattah al Sisi has ordered a 45 square mile buffer zone along Egypt’s border with Gaza in the hope that it will ease the fight with Isil loyalists in the area.


Army personnel in the restive North Sinai region have destroyed entire neighbourhoods and hundreds of hectares of farmland since July 2013.

According to a new report by Human Rights Watch, around 3200 families have been displaced since then, leaving many with nowhere to go and little compensation with which to start a new life.


Egypt’s failure to provide residents with temporary housing or adequate compensation for their homes and farmland may amount to a breach of international humanitarian law, the human rights group said.


Hajja Zaynab, a North Sinai resident in her 60s, spoke of anguish at losing her house. “How we lived sweetly and how we struggled and built our life from nothing without even a pound from those who are coming to destroy our life,” she told Human Rights Watch.

Counterterrorism experts have previously said Egypt's counterterrorism tactics in North Sinai amount to a scorched earth policy.


No government spokesman was available to comment on the allegations on Tuesday.


Parts of North Sinai are among the poorest in Egypt. The area has long been marginalised by a state which views its Bedouin inhabitants with suspicion.


Demolitions are justified by the need to destroy a tunnel network through which Egyptian authorities say Isil loyalists have been able to transport personnel and weapons from neighbouring Gaza.


Local residents say there is usually little - and sometimes no - warning before a demolitions takes place.


"How would you feel when you see an old man crying and kissing the walls of the house and the ground and breaking your heart while you have to help moving your stuff as soon as possible," said Fatma, a schoolteacher, who had fled the town of Rafah.


"How would you feel when you see your decade-old wedding portrait dumped on the ground and broken under the rain and sand?"

The destruction is carried out with explosives and earth-moving equipment. On at least one occasion, an M60 tank has been used to demolish a building.

North Sinai has been closed to journalists and independent monitors since Egypt’s jihadist insurgency gathered ring pace in the summer of 2013, following the military overthrow of the country’s first Islamist president.


More than 3,600 people, among them civilians, have died in the cat and mouse battle between Egypt’s army and Isil loyalists, according to media reports and government statements.


In interviews with the Telegraph, North Sinai residents have spoken of their growing predicament, trapped between two hostile forces. While the military have destroyed thousands of homes, the militants have carried out executions in broad daylight.


“Destroying homes, neighbourhoods, and livelihoods is a textbook example of how to lose a counterinsurgency campaign,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East and North Africa director at Human Rights Watch.
