Palestinian Activist Issa Amro’s Trial Begins in Israeli Military Court

HeadlineJul 10, 2017
H10 issa

Amnesty International is condemning the trial against prominent Palestinian activist Issa Amro, whose trial in an Israeli military court began on Sunday. Amro is the founder of the group Youth Against Settlements. He faces 18 counts, including “insulting an Israeli soldier.” The military courts in the Israeli-occupied West Bank have a nearly 100 percent conviction rate. Issa Amro told Electronic Intifada, “Under Israeli military law, I am already convicted. It is a racist court in an apartheid system.”
