Israel’s “invisible hand” in Gaza

Israel’s “invisible hand” in Gaza

We never really believed that Israel will pull out 100% from Gaza even after the alleged “withdrawal process”. Well today it seems that this report has vindicated our suspicions that Israel never had any intention of withdrawing.

Although Israel withdrew from Gaza more than a year ago, its control over the lives of Palestinians there is in some ways even tighter than before, a new report by an Israeli human rights organisation says.

In the days after Israeli troops and settlers pulled out of the territory, the then Israeli leader, Ariel Sharon addressed the United Nations.

He declared “the end of Israeli control over and responsibility for the Gaza Strip”.

But a study by Gisha challenges that claim. The organisation says it aims to “protect the fundamental rights of Palestinians living in the Occupied Territories by imposing human rights law as a limitation on the behaviour of Israel’s military”.
