«Israel» Expels Top Human Rights Activist
Local Editor

The director for the international group Human Rights Watch in Occupied Palestine, Omar Shakir, has been ordered to leave the "Israeli" entity after being accused by the "Israeli" regime of supporting boycotts against "Israel".

Head of HRW in Occupied Palestine Omar Shakir

On Monday May 7, "Israeli" authorities revoked the work permit for Shakir. On Tuesday - the same day President Trump announced withdrawal from the 2015 agreement - the "Israeli" entity ordered the head of HRW to leave the country. The eviction order followed "Israeli" allegations that HRW supported boycotts of the entity.

According to reports, "Israel" has ordered the head of the local office of Human Rights Watch to leave the country within 14 days for allegedly supporting boycotts of the entity.

The international group said Tuesday that it stands by Omar Shakir, a US citizen of Iraqi descent, and accused the "Israeli" entity of trying to muzzle criticism of its human rights record.

The "Israeli" entity's compiled dossier on Shakir included proof of a range of activities that he had taken part in, including websites, student groups that "I had participated in, speeches I gave, tweets, and social media posts going back over the course of a decade," the rights official explained in an interview with France 24.

Shakir further added that "It's quite clear that the real objective of this deportation order is to muzzle Human Rights Watch and shut down criticism of the ‘Israeli' government. This is a decision taken with the aim of silencing criticism of ‘Israel's' human rights record."
