HUMAN RIGHTS SITUATION IN PALESTINE
AND OTHER OCCUPIED ARAB TERRITORIES

Written statement* submitted by the Organization for Defending Victims of Violence (ODVV),
a non-governmental organization in special consultative status


The Secretary-General has received the following written statement which is circulated in accordance with Economic and Social Council resolution 1996/31.



[28 August 2009]
The subject of Palestine and the fundamental human rights of Palestinians is a long subject full of ups and downs. For years now the Palestinians and Israelis have been confronted with challenges in the way of the realisation of the rights of Palestinians. And the lengthiness of this process and changes in the human and environment factor over the period of time, have constantly affected the process of these changes.

Over the last six months, several geographic developments have taken place in Palestine, some of which can be helpful in the just and fair peace talks process for Palestine, and some other developments have sadly been placed as obstacles against this process. The following is a confirmation of the aforementioned claims:

As a non-governmental organization active in the field of human rights, the Organization for Defending Victims of Violence, reaching a conclusion to the abovementioned points, hopes and calls for an increase in the positive points and decrease in the negative points, and hopes for a future for a free, independent, and peace-seeking sovereign state of Palestine, in peaceful coexistence in the region.
