Shtayyeh condemns Israel’s halt on granting visas to UN human rights employees

RAMALLAH, Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh condemned Israel’s continued refusal to grant or renew visas to employees of the United Nations (UN) Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

This came during a virtual meeting with the director-general of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in the occupied Palestinian territory James Hainan, where they discussed the human rights situation in Palestine, and stressed the importance of UN staff presence in Palestine to document the occupation’s violations of Palestinian rights.

Shtayyeh stressed that there is a significant escalation in human right violations in Palestine as a result of the violence of the colonists, the steady increase in the colonial program, the continuous incursions into cities, villages, and camps, and the systematic destruction of the two-state solution and the possibility of a Palestinian state.
