Critics detained and tortured in West Bank and Gaza: Human Rights Watch

Palestinian critics are regularly beaten, tortured and detained for long periods without trial by each of the rival Palestinian governments in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, Human Rights Watch said in a report released on Tuesday.

Both the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza have leaned on sweeping laws designed to silence criticism to target each other's supporters as well as other civil society activists, the report claimed based on interviews with 147 victims and witnesses to violence and detention.
