HCJ 1838/09 - Abu Rokaya et al. v. GOC Southern Command Petition for Order Nisi
Court Documents | 1838/09 | 26.2.2009
HaMoked’s petition to allow three B’Tselem workers to enter the Gaza Strip in order to document and examine the human rights situation there. The petitioners stress that the protection of human rights is one of the fundamental principles of a democratic regime, and that the existence of human rights organizations is vital to the protection of such rights. B’Tselem’s work centers on gathering and distributing information in Israel and abroad, and entry to Gaza is vital to such work.
HaMoked and B'Tselem petitioned the HCJ demanding to allow the entry of three B'Tselem workers into the Gaza Strip, in order to document and examine the humanitarian situation and the state of human rights following the fighting: the Court instructed the State to respond to the petition within 14 days
HaMoked deleted its petition to allow B'Tselem's field researchers to enter the Gaza Strip: The court rejected the petitioners' claims that many Israelis enter Gaza, and the military's refusal to permit the entry appears to be an attempt to hinder the work of human rights organizations in Israel (02) 627 1698   (02) 627 6317
