Center of the Storm: A Case Study of Human Rights Abuses in Hebron District

Recently released by Human Rights Watch (HRW), this 82-page report is the product of a five-week investigation in Hebron in November 2000 and February 2001. Human Rights Watch researchers interviewed over 180 victims of and witnesses to abuses, Israeli and Palestinian officials, international observers, medical and educational personnel, and Israeli settler representatives. The report documents the "excessive use of force and unlawful killings by Israeli forces, Palestinian targeting of Israeli civilians, and a systematic policy of Israeli blockades and curfews that amount to collective punishment." It also finds a pattern of violence committed by Jewish settlers against Palestinian civilians in the area, often with the knowledge of Israeli Defense Force (IDF) soldiers. The full text of the report is available in English in HTML and .pdf format. It may also be downloaded in Hebrew in Word and .pdf format and in Arabic in .rtf format.
