Ask Congress to oppose the terrorist designation of six Palestinian human rights organizations. The following article was published in the September-October 2022 issue of NewsNotes.
In the early morning hours of August 18, Israeli forces raided and ordered closed the six Palestinian human rights organizations earlier deemed by the Israeli government as "terrorist” organizations.
This move comes ten months after Benny Gantz, the Israeli Defense Minister, signed an executive order designating the groups as “terrorist” organizations.
The six organizations are: Addameer, al-Haq, Defense for Children International Palestine (DCIP), the Union of Agricultural Work Committees, the Bisan Center for Research and Development, and the Union of Palestinian Women Committees. The executive order did not provide any public evidence to substantiate these claims.
Many of these human rights organizations work closely with the international community to develop Palestinian civil society, document human rights violations, and defend Palestinians in Israeli courts.
