Introduction: the applicability of the Covenant The following report was compiled by Al-Haq, Law in the Service of Man and Al-Mezan, Center for Human Rights in Gaza to provide supplemental information to Israel's second periodic report to the UN Human Rights Committee regarding its fulfillment of its obligations as a signatory to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (the CCPR).
Necessarily this report is not comprehensive, as covering all of the violations of the CCPR currently being committed by Israel in the Occupied Palestinian Territories would require a report of more length than is appropriate.
Nevertheless, this report attempts to give an overview of several of the major types of violations that are being committed by Israel, and highlights questions that we believes the Human Rights Committee should put to the Israeli representatives appearing before the Committee in its upcoming session.
