AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL | Stop excessive force against demonstrators

Maan News Agency | March 30, 2012

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Amnesty International’s deputy director for the Middle East and north Africa called Friday for Israel to stop using excessive force against demonstrators.

Ann Harrison said reports that dozens were hurt at demonstrations were “extremely worrying, particularly in the light of frequent and persistent use of excessive force against Palestinian protesters.

“We are also concerned at reports that Palestinian Authority security forces have tried to prevent protests in areas under their control, while Hamas security forces have beaten protesters in Gaza.

“All those involved in policing demonstrations should respect freedom of assembly and must adhere to international policing standards,” Harrison said in a statement.
