Annex

LETTER DATED 23 JANUARY 1984 FROM THE PERMANENT OBSERVER
OF THE PALESTINE LIBERATION ORGANIZATION ADDRESSED TO THE
ASSISTANT SECRETARY-GENERAL OF THE CENTRE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS


During the past 10 months, the Palestinian inhabitants of the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip have endured violations of their fundamental human rights, in all fields of their daily life.

Indeed, the Israeli occupation authorities have continued their inhuman practices against the population of the Occupied Territories, in an escalation of violence and terror. They have been backed up by the civilian Israeli settlers, who have been perpetuating, with impunity, coward crimes against the Palestinian inhabitants of the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Enclosed, please find a Memorandum on Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Population of the Palestinian Occupied Territories from April 1983 to January 1984.

I, hereby, wish to request you to include this document as an official document of the fortieth session of the Commission on Human Rights, which will start its work on 6 February 1984, in Geneva.

Permanent Observer for the

Attachment

MEMORANDUM DATED 23 JANUARY 1984 ON ISRAELI PRACTICES AFFECTING
THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE POPULATION OF THE ARAB OCCUPIED TERRITORIES


In March and April 1983, the female population of the occupied West Bank was victim of an escalation of terror perpetrated by the Israeli occupation authorities, which consisted in a large-scale gas intoxication campaign against, mainly, schoolgirls. The perpetrators of these crimes have remained unknown and unpunished, but the occupation authorities have imposed curfews on the villages and camps hit by the intoxication campaign, thus impeding rescue operations, and doubly penalizing the Palestinian population.
