Palestinian human rights defenders and civil society organizations have faced intensifying attacks by the Israeli occupation regime, as evidenced by the recent arbitrary arrests of the Health Work Committees Director, and a number of Palestinian students, along with IOF raids on the headquarters of Defense for Children International-Palestine and the Bisan Center for Research and Development. This comes in an effort to repress, criminalize, and intimidate anyone who advocates for Palestinian human rights or challenges Israel’s entrenched regime of settler-colonialism and apartheid. The situation prompted the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of HRDs issued a statement addressing multiple prominent cases of arbitrary arrests and harassment against Palestinian HRDs.
