Current Action: Press Release 24 October 2021

On Friday last, 22nd October, the Israeli government designated six Palestinian human rights organisations as terrorist institutions. This designation effectively outlaws the activities of these civil society groups and allows Israeli authorities to take measures against them, including; to close their offices, seize their assets, arrest and imprison their staff, prohibit funding and it even outlaws expressing support for their activities. It is in effect an attempt to eradicate all activities of Palestinian civil society.

Israel’s decision to label six Palestinian human rights organisations as ‘terrorist’ organisations represents a totally unacceptable development in Israel’s relentless and systematic operation against Palestinian NGOs and human rights defenders. It is no coincidence that a number of the organisations targeted by Israel are engaged in documentation of human rights violations and have cooperated closely with the International Criminal Court in its probe into war crimes committed by the state of Israel in the West Bank and Gaza. Full Press Statement here.

Dr Susan Power from Al Haq discusses the consequences of this 'terrorist' designation for a long-standing and highly respected Palestinian NGO (Cork96FM Podcast)
