    Amnesty International calls on Canada to recognize Israel’s illegal occupation of the Occupied Palestinian Territories

    Ketty Nivyabandi, Secretary General of Amnesty International Canada (English branch), and France-Isabelle Langlois, Directrice générale of Amnistie internationale Canada francophone, have written an open letter to express grave concern about the recent violence in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, including East Jerusalem and Gaza. Within a matter of weeks, the situation escalated from a crackdown by Israeli forces against peaceful Palestinian demonstrators in East Jerusalem to a full-scale armed conflict between Israeli forces and Palestinian armed groups in Gaza. Please see the attached letter.
