GENEVA, March 15, 2012 (WAFA) – Around 300 international non-governmental organizations signed an appeal on Wednesday demanding lifting of Israeli restrictions on Palestinian mobility in the occupied West Bank, Thursday said a statement by the Euromid Observer for Human Rights (Euro-Mid(.
The plea was submitted in a seminar on Israeli violations in the occupied Palestinian Territory hosted by the United Nations Human Rights Council.
Euro-Mid regional director, Amani al-Sinwar, gave a detailed presentation of Israel’s main violations under its last escalation in the Gaza Strip, and the unjustified Israeli restrictions imposed on Palestinians in the occupied territories.
Sinwar also briefed the seminar on Euro-Mid’s report on the travel ban Israel issues against Palestinians, which amounted to 4000 in 2011.
The report was adopted by the UN Human Rights Council and was sent to the General Assembly and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to investigate the issue of Palestinians banned from travelling by Israel, and to find legal ways to solve it.
