Human Rights Watch issued a report on Tuesday stating that Israel is committing the crimes against humanity of apartheid and persecution in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.

The New York-based organization’s report, entitled “A Threshold Crossed: Israeli Authorities and the Crimes of Apartheid and Persecution,” examines what it calls an Israeli policy to maintain the domination by Jewish Israelis over Palestinians across Israel, the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza. In the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, the group claims, this aim is combined with systematic oppression of the Palestinians and inhumane acts committed against them, which Human Rights Watch says taken together constitute the crime of apartheid.
