UN Humanitarian Coordinator concerned over Israel’s designation of six Palestinian Human Rights groups as ‘terrorist organization’

JERUSALEM, Monday, October 25, 2021 (WAFA) - Lynn Hastings, United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for the Occupied Palestinian Territory expressed concern over the recent designation of six Palestinian Human Rights and Humanitarian Organizations, by Israel's Ministry of Defense under the 2016 Anti-Terrorism Law and by the relevant allegations.

"These designations add to increasing pressures on civil society organizations across the oPt more broadly and have the potential to seriously undermine their humanitarian, development and human rights work," said Hastings in a statement.

In addressing this issue, I am engaging with the Israeli authorities to learn more about the allegations, he concluded.
