These violations breach international humanitarian law and human rights law, including targeting killing and injuring civilians, extra-judicial executions of Palestinian political leaders and activists, arbitrary arrest and detention, home demolitions and destruction of public property, commenting acts of torture, cruel and degrading treatment, imposing restrictions on the freedom of movement, including curfews, attacking journalists, media institutions and medical personnel, in addition to the violations by Israeli settlers and the expansion of settlements. The chapter also discusses the status of Palestinian territories under international law, particularly Geneva Conventions and the law of occupation. It documents, by statistics and detailed numbers, the committed abuses of Palestinians rights across the year.
