UN blasts increase in arbitrary detention of Palestinian activists

The United Nations has denounced daily violations of human rights and international law by the Israeli regime in the occupied Palestinian territories, warning of an increase in the arbitrary detention of Palestinian rights activists.

“We have received a worrying number of complaints in recent months regarding human rights defenders, who are arrested and, in many cases, arbitrarily detained, often apparently as a direct result of their important work in their communities,” the UN special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories, Michael Lynk, and the UN special rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders, Michel Forst, said in a joint statement on Friday.

The UN experts also expressed concern over the harassment of Palestinian groups seeking to promote accountability and engage with the International Criminal Court over the Tel Aviv regime’s crimes in the occupied territories.
