On Thursday, UN Special Rapporteur on Occupied Palestine Canadian Law Professor Michael Lynk explained "the human rights situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory is in a state of severe deterioration."
"The human rights and humanitarian law violations associated with the occupation impact every aspect of life for Palestinians living in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and Gaza."
Fifty years of illegal Israeli occupation inflicted enormous harm on millions of Palestinians. Lynk cited a UN report, saying the following:
"International law is the promise that states make to one another, and to their people, that rights will be respected, protections will be honored, agreements and obligations will be satisfied, and peace with justice will be pursued."
