What Other News Says

Israel maintained institutionalized discrimination against Palestinians who lived under its control in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. 

As a result of home demolitions, coercive measures, and displacement of hundreds of Palestinians living in Israel

and the Occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem included, it has forced many Palestinians to flee. 

During law enforcement operations in Israel and the OPT, Israeli forces used excessive force. 

In the OPT, 31 Palestinians were killed, nine of them children.

Many were illegally killed, but they did not pose an imminent threat to their lives. 

Israel continued its illegal blockade of the Gaza Strip, putting its residents under collective punishment and escalating the humanitarian crisis. 

It continued to block the movement of Palestinians within the OPT by imposing roadblocks and checkpoints. 

Israeli authorities arbitrarily held thousands of Palestinians in Israel from the OPT

and kept hundreds in administrative detention, without charging or trial. 

Torture and other cruel treatment of detainees (including children) were done with impunity. 

To target journalists, human rights defenders and anyone who criticised Israel’s ongoing occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip,

and those who had critical of Israel’s continued occupation of the Syrian Golan Heights, the authorities took a variety of actions. 

Violence against women continued, particularly against Palestinian Israeli citizens.
