Statement by UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator Hastings on the Israeli Designation of Civil Society Organizations in OPT

Arabic: العربية

I am concerned by the recent designation of six Palestinian Human Rights and Humanitarian organizations, by Israel’s Ministry of Defense under the 2016 Anti-Terrorism Law and by the relevant allegations.

These designations add to increasing pressures on civil society organisations across the oPt more broadly and have the potential to seriously undermine their humanitarian, development and human rights work.

In addressing this issue, I am engaging with the Israeli authorities to learn more about the allegations.
