Palestinian center sheds light on rights violations by Israel

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights has released a new report shedding light on human rights violations by Israel.

The center said the Tel Aviv regime presses ahead with its systematic attacks against Palestinians.

The findings of the rights group were based on Israeli assaults on Palestinians from December 4 to 10.

Israeli forces killed Palestinian official Ziad Abu Ein and wounded over a dozen other people including seven children in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip during that period.

The organization says the Israeli military conducted at least 64 incursions in the West Bank, and arrested 93 Palestinians including 13 children during the period.

The Palestinian center has called for more pressure on Israel and the prosecution of Israeli criminals.

In October, the UN Human Rights Committee slammed Israel for violating the rights of Palestinians and the maltreatment of Palestinian prisoners.

In a report on the Israeli regime’s human rights record, the committee expressed grief over Israel’s continued destruction of Palestinian houses in the occupied West Bank, censuring the ongoing “confiscation and expropriation of Palestinian land and restrictions on access of Palestinians” in the occupied territories including East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

It also condemned reports on the use of torture by Israeli prison authorities in Israeli detention facilities.

Elsewhere it expressed concern over human rights abuses committed in the three wars Israel imposed on Gaza since late 2008, including the latest military aggression of summer 2014 that left nearly 2,200 Palestinians dead.
