COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS
Fifty-ninth session
Item 8 of the provisional agenda



QUESTION OF THE VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE
OCCUPIED ARAB TERRITORIES, INCLUDING PALESTINE


Letter dated 5 August 2002 from the Permanent Observer for Palestine to
the United Nations Office at Geneva addressed to the United Nations
High Commissioner for Human Rights


Please find herewith enclosed* memorandums issued by the Palestinian National Authority on the Israeli daily aggressions against the Palestinian people in the occupied Palestinian territories for the month of July 2002, all of which constitute violations of human rights and grave violations categorized according to international humanitarian law as war crimes and crimes against humanity, particularly the continued Israeli acts of deliberate killing, house demolitions, besieging Palestinian towns, villages and camps, imposing collective punishments, severe restrictions on the movement of Palestinians and a suffocating curfew which obviously endangers the lives of thousands of Palestinian civilians who are denied access to food, water, medicine and even to hospitals for getting urgent treatment.

I would be most grateful if you could have this letter and its enclosure distributed to the members of the Commission on Human Rights, as an official document of the fifty-ninth session of the Commission.

(Signed ) Nabil RAMLAWI
Ambassador
Permanent Observer
