Human rights abuses by Gaza, West Bank rulers on the rise: report


Global News

A Palestinian report shows human rights abuses by the rival governments in the West Bank and Gaza are on the rise.

The Palestinian Independent Commission for Human Rights said in its annual report Tuesday that incidents of abuse are up 10 per cent since last year.

Director Ahmed Harb said, “Most of the complaints were on torture, mistreatment, preventing and dispersing public assemblies, preventing reporters from reporting or arresting them.”

The report said the rift between Palestinian factions is a main cause. Islamic Hamas militants ousted Fatah forces from Gaza in 2007 and took power. The Fatah-dominated Palestinian Authority rules the West Bank.

The report said there were seven extrajudicial killings of alleged Israeli collaborators in Gaza, and two Palestinians died in West Bank jails.

Palestinian officials were unavailable for comment.
