Israel denies human rights watchdogs work permits

Human rights NGO

The Israeli occupation authorities continue to turn down applications for work permits by human rights NGOs staff members.

Dozens of human rights researchers and advocates have had their applications for work permits rejected over recent months.

A senior relief officer said the humanitarian situation is expected to take a turn for the worse due to the ban.

Another worker who arrived in Israel last June said the Israeli authorities have refused to grant her a work permit.

A director of operations working for a prominent human rights organization is expected to pop in the occupied West Bank in the next few weeks.

Since the start of 2017 the Israeli Knesset (parliament) approved a ban against foreign workers who support the anti-Israel boycott movement.
