A Nation Under Siege

A Nation Under Siege

This annual report examines a range of human rights violations committed by Israeli occupying forces in the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and Gaza Strip. Using international humanitarian and human rights law as its criteria for analysis, the report classifies each violation in such terms. With extensive appendices - including official statistics, legal documents, military reports and affidavits - the report addresses such violations as torture and killings in detention, medical rights abuses, belligerent settlers, soldiers and policies, house demolitions, unaccounted-for deportations, administrative detention, and grave infringements on educational, economic and religious rights. It affirms the moral and legal obligation of states to uphold Article 1 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, in concurrence with all international laws and paradigms.
