Country Profile: Israel/Palestinian Territory
Israel maintains discriminatory systems that discriminate against Palestinians. The country's 50-year occupation of the West Bank and Gaza involves systematic rights abuses, including collective punishment, routine use of excessive lethal force, and prolonged administrative detention without charge or trial for hundreds. The Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza both restrict dissent, arbitrarily arresting critics and abusing those in custody.
