The Israeli NGO, Hamoked – the Centre for the Defence of the Individual, has just launched a new website. In both Hebrew and English, it is the most comprehensive and up-to-date legal database of Israeli violations of the human rights of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories: Israeli statutory law; military legislation, international conventions, petitions to the High Court of Justice, torts claims, Israeli case-law; other relevant case laws; official documents, correspondence and more.
It carries a new quiz asking “What do you know about the occupation?“
