Activists Call for Removing Terrorist Labels of Six Human Rights Groups

Activists call on the international community to help revoke the designation of six Palestinian human rights groups as terrorist organizations.

The terrorist label allows Israel to search their offices, seize assets and arrest employees.

Israel accuses the groups of being part of a small Palestinian movement with a political party and an armed faction that has carried out deadly attacks against Israelis.

Activists say Israel’s labeling of terrorism is a blatant attempt to prevent groups from documenting human rights abuses in the occupied territory.

The designation of the six groups, including some that received European funding, seems to have taken the US and Europe by surprise. Israel later insisted that a number of Biden administration officials had been informed from the start.
