PCHR: Report on Israeli Human Rights Violations in the Occupied Palestinian Territory

Summary of Israeli Violations of Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory for October 8–14, 2020

Israeli occupation forces (IOF) continued to commit crimes and multifaceted violations against Palestinian civilians and their properties, including raids into Palestinian cities that are characterized with excessive use of force, assault, abuse and attacks on civilians. This week, IOF attacks rendered 18 Palestinian civilians wounded in excessive use of force, including 2 children, in the West Bank. Settler-attacks and confiscation of Palestinians’ properties continued, under the pretext of working without permits.

To date, Maher al-Akhras, 50-year-old administrative detainee, hunger strike enters his 81st consecutive day, in protest of his arrest with no charge or trial under administrative detention despite the deterioration of his health condition. Al-Akhras entered into a hunger strike from the first day of his detention on 27 July 2020.

This week, the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) documented 220 violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law (IHL) by IOF and settlers in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt). It should be noted that the limitations due to the corona virus pandemic, has limited PCHR’s fieldworkers mobility and ability to conduct field documentation; therefore, the information contained in this report are only part of the continued IOF violations.
