Israel/OPT: UN expert on counter-terrorism and human rights visits Israel and OPT

UN Human Rights Council Special Rapporteur Martin Scheinin visited Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory in early July. In his preliminary findings, he raises a number of concerns about Israeli policies and practices, including the construction of the wall in the West Bank, the policy of targeted killings and the use of the doctrine of “necessity defence” in “ticking bomb” scenarios.
