Amnesty Report Finds Israel Guilty of “The Crime of Apartheid Against Palestinians”

HeadlineFeb 01, 2022

Amnesty International has published a new report accusing Israel of carrying out “the crime of apartheid against Palestinians.” Amnesty’s Secretary General Agnès Callamard told reporters in occupied East Jerusalem today that Israel’s treatment of Palestinians constitutes a cruel system of domination and a crime against humanity.

Agnès Callamard: “We are here today to call on the international community to take resolute action against the crime [against] humanity being perpetrated in order to maintain the system of apartheid.”

Israeli officials had demanded Amnesty International not release the report, calling its findings “false, biased and antisemitic.”
