Amnesty blasts Israel for plan to uphold travel ban on its activist
Amnesty International decries Zionist regime for what appears to be a plan to uphold a travel ban that the regime has imposed on one of its campaigners, denouncing Tel Aviv’s “complete disregard” for human rights activism.
According to Press TV, the UK-based rights body had protested the ban imposed against Laith Abu Zeyad, its campaigner in the Occupied Territories, at the al-Quds District Court. However, the organization was notified recently by the court that it could now withdraw its bid to challenge the decision.
Israel occupied the West Bank, where al-Quds is partly located, during a Western-backed war in 1967.
Ever since, it has been dotting the Palestinian territory with illegal settlements in direct violation of the international law that prohibits construction on Occupied Territory. The regime has also propped up countless checkpoints across the territory that have overly complicated Palestinians’ movement about.
