Israel Continues to Practice Collective Punishment on the Palestinian Population by Imposing Complete Closure on the Palestinian Territories During Purim

Print PDF

The closure imposed by Israeli authorities on the movement of the Palestinian population has reached unprecedented level. The closure did not only impede Palestinians' freedom of movement, but also grossly violated their basic human rights such as the right to work to secure a means of living for Palestinians and their families. The closure during the Jewish holiday 'Purim' will start Saturday, March 11, 2006 and will last until the evening of Wednesday March 15, 2006. The Jerusalem Center for Social and Economic Rights views the complete closure of the occupied Palestinian territories as corroboration of Israel's collective punishment imposed upon the Palestinian population. This is a gross and clear violation of article 33 of the fourth Geneva Convention in reference to the protection of the civilian population during war '1949'.
