Amnesty International is slamming the Israeli government for refusing to allow Raed Jarrar, advocacy director for the Middle East and North Africa, to enter the Israeli-occupied West Bank. He was stopped at a crossing between Jordan and the Israeli-occupied West Bank while on a personal trip to visit family after the death of his father. Amnesty said, “The fact that Raed Jarrar was barred from entry after being interrogated about his work with Amnesty International appears to suggest that this move was taken in retaliation for the organization’s work on human rights violations in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.”
