Ramallah (August 18, 2022) โ€“ This morning, Israeli forces broke into, searched and sealed off the offices of seven Palestinian human rights and humanitarian aid organizationsยณ in Ramallah, in Area A of the occupied West Bank . Their property was confiscated and destroyed and military orders closing the offices were left at the scene.

The United Nations and its partners take seriously allegations of terrorist financing and Israeli designations of these organizations as โ€œterroristโ€ and/or โ€œillegalโ€ organizations. Despite offers to examine the allegations to determine whether funds were misappropriated, Israeli authorities have provided no convincing evidence to UN agencies or its NGO partners working in the Occupied Palestinian Territory to support these designations. Several Member States have recently announced that the evidence provided to them does not justify the designations.

Attempts to close these organizational offices represent the latest in a series of actions by Israel that further limit the ability of human rights, humanitarian and development work in the Palestinian territory. occupied, which affects all institutions working for the promotion of human rights, development and the provision of assistance.

We reiterate our statement of November 2021: counter-terrorism legislation must be consistent with obligations under international law, in particular international humanitarian law and human rights law, which include full respect for the rights to freedom of association and expression. It cannot apply to legitimate human rights and humanitarian work; the extent of Israelโ€™s 2016 counter-terrorism legislation and its impact on the presumption of innocence raises serious concerns under international law.

We urge the Government of Israel to refrain from any action that would prevent these organizations from continuing their essential human rights, humanitarian and development work in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.
