west bank palestine refugee injuries & fatalities 2017 in and around camps

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

According to international law, the security forces of the occupying power, exercising law enforcement functions, are permitted to use lethal force only as a last resort - when there is an imminent threat of serious physical harm or death to the forces. UNRWA has documented and protested to the Israeli authorities 4 out of 7 refugee fatalities in 2017 where it appeared that the use of force by the Israeli Security Forces was disproportional to the threat posed.
