Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions

Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD)

ICAHD is a non-violent, direct-action organization established in 1997 to resist Israeli demolition of Palestinian houses in the Occupied Territories. They are also involved in resistance activities to other areas – land expropriation, settlement expansion, by-pass road construction, policies of “closure” and “separation,” the wholesale uprooting of fruit and olive trees, the Separation Barrier/Wall, the siege of Gaza and more.

They are also engaged in a vigorous campaign of international advocacy to end the Occupation and to achieve a just peace between Israelis and Palestinians. ICAHD does not advocate for any particular solution to the conflict, believing that is solely the Palestinians prerogative. However, they do support any solution — two-state, one-state or regional — which offers a just and inclusive peace. ICAHD supports the Palestinian civil society call for boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) on Israel until the Occupation ends.

ICAHD works closely with both the Israeli peace camp and with Palestinian partners, as well as with dozens of civil society organizations worldwide.
