CIR welcomes HRW report on Israeli apartheid

Council on International Relations – Palestine (CIR) welcomed the report issued Tuesday by Human Rights Watch, in which it says Israeli authorities are committing the crimes against humanity of apartheid and persecution.

The report describes the reality that Palestinians have been living for decades, the council said, and it is an important legal document that supports the Palestinian narrative and refutes the false Israeli narrative.

The CIR called on the international community to shoulder its responsibilities in accordance with international law, and to work to hold the Israeli occupation state accountable for its ongoing crimes, especially supporting the investigation conducted by the International Criminal Court.

“Israel” is committing “crimes against humanity of apartheid and persecution” against Palestinians and the international community must reevaluate diplomatic relations with the state, Human Rights Watch said in a report on Tuesday.

The 213-page report details how “Israel” has sought to maintain Jewish-Israeli hegemony over the Palestinian people from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.
