Life, Liberty and Security

Palestinian men, women and children face various forms of threats to their life, liberty and security on a daily basis. This includes threats stemming from policies and practices related to the Israeli occupation; from conflict-related violence; from violence, intimidation and harassment by settlers in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem; and from Palestinian inter-factional violence. The impact of violence and conflict on children is particularly concerning, hindering the enjoyment of their rights and preventing their normal development.
