Joint List MK Aida Touma-Sliman slams the IDF’s decision to designate six Palestinian rights groups as terror organizations in the West Bank, enabling Israel to take concrete action against them.

“The persecution of six human rights groups in the West Bank is moving to practical aspects,” she says. “The groups’ workers are under danger of being arrested, and the organizations are in danger of being closed.

“Israel is trying to destroy Palestinian civil society and to turn human rights advocacy into an act of terror.”
