ACRI Letter to International Fact-Finding Mission on Israeli Settlements

ACRI logo

Yesterday (27 September 2012), ACRI sent a letter to the Secretariat of the International Fact-Finding Mission on Israeli Settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, in response to the Mission’s call for submissions.
 
ACRI has been dealing with the issues mandated to the Fact-Finding Mission for many years and has voiced its professional stance on them on numerous occasions, both in legal submissions and in various publications. In the letter, Attorney Tamar Feldman, Director of the Human Rights in the Occupied Territories Department, refers the Fact-Finding Mission to ACRI’s recent position paper about Israeli settlements, which was submitted in April 2012 to the Israeli Committee to Examine the State of Construction in Judea and Samaria (known as the Levy Committee).
 
ACRI’s position paper, which was published in April 2012, found that both “authorized” settlements and “unauthorized” outposts are illegal under International Humanitarian Law and inflict severe harm upon a range of human rights of the Palestinian residents of the West Bank.
