On Sunday, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates accused Israel of pursuing a policy of silencing mouths to cover up its practices in the occupied Palestinian territories.
In a press statement, the Ministry condemned the decision of the Israeli Defense Minister, Naftali Bennett, to deport Israeli leftist activists from the West Bank and prohibit them from entering it to participate in pro-Palestinian demonstrations.
The ministry said Bennett "insists with his decisions that he top the list of Israeli war criminals. His restriction to the activities of the solidarity team is a direct recognition of the crimes he will commit against the Palestinian people."
She added that the aforementioned decision "is a blatant attack on public freedoms, freedom of expression of opinion, and a new attempt to cover up the violence of the Israeli army and armed settler militias and terrorist acts against Palestinian citizens."
The Palestinian Foreign Ministry warned that Israel would restrict the activities of Israeli human and human rights organizations "in order to be able to exclusively limitless violent participation of Palestinians in peaceful marches."
Human rights institutions demanded to follow these developments with the required importance, and to complete raising their details to the International Criminal Court, which will consider allegations of war crimes in the Palestinian territories.
According to Israeli media, Bennett yesterday issued an administrative order to deport Israeli left-wing activists from the West Bank and ban their entry to it, to include about thirty Israeli activists in the "anarchists against the wall / apartheid" movement.
For years, the Palestinians have been organizing weekly demonstrations in the West Bank villages, often with the participation of Israeli and international solidarity protesting settlement policies and building the Israeli apartheid wall.
