Over the past week, Israel has continued and intensified attacks against Palestinian human rights organizations. Who are these organizations and why are they being targeted?
On the morning of August 18, occupation forces raided the offices of seven leading Palestinian civil society groups, six of which had been declared “terrorist organizations” and banned by the Israeli government in 2021
The UN experts urged the international community to acknowledge the lack of evidence against the six group on the terrorism charges leveled by Israel. They also demanded that Israel end the harassment and persecution of Palestinian human rights and civil society organizations
The demonstrations were held in front of the UN and UNESCO offices in Ramallah and Gaza city. The protesters called for increased international pressure on Israel to rescind its terrorist designation of the six Palestinian groups
The decision allows Israel to close the offices, seize the assets and arrest the employees of the six Palestinian organizations. The organizations have been accused of having links with the leftist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP)
