Court Documents | 3799/02 | 5.5.2002
Petition filed by Adalah in its name and on behalf of other human rights organizations, among them HaMoked, against the use of Palestinian civilians as human shields or as hostages, including as part of the “neighbor procedure”. In this procedure, Palestinians are forced to enter the houses suspected of being booby-trapped and search them before soldiers enter, and to lift objects that soldiers consider suspicious. The petition contains a number of testimonies by Palestinians and reports of human rights organizations. The petition emphasizes that the procedure violates the Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty and principles of international humanitarian law. From Adalah’s Website.
