Nada-hughThe Dutch newspaper, NRC, issued an article today on Al-Haq staff member Nada Kiswanson and the death threats she has received. Al-Haq has previously raised attention to these threats and other attacks against the organization.[1] Al-Haq stands behind Nada and expresses its solidarity with all other activists and human rights defenders on Palestine that are under attack for criticizing Israel’s occupation and calling for accountability for Israel’s violations of international law.
