Israel violates international human rights law: HRW

E-mail Print PDF

Human Rights Watch (HRW) has criticized Israel for a new piece of legislation that allows the detention of migrants without charge, stressing that the law is in violation of international human rights regulations.

On June 3, Tel Aviv announced that migrants who illegally crossed into Israel could face a detention of up to three years.

African migrants have been the target of violent attacks by Israeli protesters in the past few weeks.

“Israeli officials are not only adding rhetorical fuel to the xenophobic fire, but they now have a new law that punishes refugees in violation of international law,” the statement further read.
