Israel Flouts International Law While Targeting Human Rights Defenders

In October 2016, Hagai El-Ad, the Director of Israeli human rights group B’Tselem, made an extraordinary, direct appeal to the U.N. Security Council to take decisive action to end Israel’s brutal, 50-year occupation of Palestinian Territories. Two months later, the U.N. Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2334, which condemns Israel’s “flagrant violation” of international law. In this interview for The Real News, I speak to B’Tselem’s spokesperson Amit Gilutz about Israel’s complete disregard for Security Council resolution 2334 and the Netanyahu government’s relentless efforts to intimidate and silence courageous human rights defenders like those of B’Tselem. My interview of Amit Gilutz can be watched here:
