JIJ has filed extensive legal reports and memos to national and global bodies regarding violations of human rights in the region, with the goal to bring to justice perpetrators that have so far enjoyed impunity.

In the last 3 years, we submitted lawsuits against Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh in the International Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes committed against the Palestinian people in Gaza and against Chairman Mahmoud Abbas for crimes committed against Palestinian civilians in the West Bank.

Fifty-two Palestinian testimonies were also submitted to the International Criminal Court in The Hague. These testimonies expose the brutal abuses committed by the Palestinian Authority against their own citizens.

“The Palestinian Authority is responsible for severe abuses, including: the murder, kidnapping, imprisonment, torture, and rape of 52 Palestinian and Israeli citizens, residents of the West Bank,” stated the long (1,800 pages) precedent setting verdict that was issued by judge Moshe Drori of the Jerusalem District Court.
