Key issues

There are concerns over respect for human rights in the Gaza Strip: this week, two men were sentenced to death; a religious group was attacked and taken for questioning by security forces; and a human rights defender was attacked by unknown groups on two separate occasions.

Settler violence, including “price tag” incidents by Israeli settlers, continues to affect Palestinians’ lives and livelihoods. This week, three Palestinians were injured and 40 olive trees and eight vehicles were vandalized by settlers.

Nine Palestinian-owned livelihood structures demolished this week, affecting the livelihoods of over 30 Palestinians.
