Arab legal rights group warns against ‘collective punishment’ in Jerusalem

The Adalah NGo for Arab-Israeli legal rights decries Israeli politicians’ proposal of a closure in East Jerusalem neighborhoods amid unabated attacks against Jews in the city.

“This step is collective punishment that violates the basic rights of these villages as well as international law,” Adalah says in a statement. “The closure compounds other steps taken by the Israeli government in recent weeks that deepen the oppression that has been ongoing for 48 years and escalates the situation.”
