Israeli Ban on Palestinian Entry may be Collective Punishment

Geneva - Israel's cancellation of entry permits for Palestinians may amount to collective punishment, which is banned under international law, the United Nations ' top human rights official said on Friday. The Israeli military on Thursday revoked permits for 83,000 Palestinians to visit Israel during Ramadan, following a deadly attack in Tel Aviv, and said it would send hundreds more troops to the occupied West Bank after a Palestinian gun attack that killed four Israelis in Tel Aviv.

On Friday, it said it was temporarily barring all Palestinians from entering Israel.

"In accordance with government directives and the ongoing situation assessment, as of today crossing from the Gaza Strip and Judaea and Samaria (the West Bank) will be open to Palestinians only in medical and humanitarian cases," a spokeswoman said.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said he condemns the attack but is deeply concerned about the revoking of permits "which may amount to prohibited collective punishment and will only increase the sense of injustice and frustration felt by Palestinians," spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani told journalists at a press briefing in Geneva.

On Wednesday four people were killed and five others injured during a shooting attack at a Tel Aviv shopping mall close to the Israeli defence ministry.
