PCHR Calls for Stopping Extra-Judicial Executions in Gaza

Ref: 130/2014

 

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) is
following up with concern reports of extra-judicial executions carried out in
the Gaza Strip during the Israeli offensive, which has been ongoing for 47
days.  These executions have targeted
persons suspected of collaboration with Israeli occupation forces.

 

The latest of such executions took place at approximately 09:00 (local
time) on Friday, 22 August 2014, when at least 9 persons were
executed by firing squad in al-Katiba yard in the west of Gaza City.  Identities of those persons are still unknown
to PCHR, as the executions were carried out under strict security measures.

 

PCHR calls upon the Palestinian National Authority and resistance groups
to intervene to stop such extra-judicial executions whatever their reasons or
motives are.

 

This morning, Lawyer Raji Sourani, Director PCHR, has sent urgent
letters to a number of Palestinian leaders demanding them to immediately and decisively
intervene to stop such extra-judicial executions, considering that they cause
damage to all of us.  Although we are
aware of the circumstances of the ongoing offensive, and the direct impact of
employing and using collaborators in carrying out extra-judicial assassinations
and other crimes by Israeli forces, we need to confirm the rule of law and
respect for human rights.
