Israeli occupation forces continue to besiege the Gaza Strip and storm Palestinian cities in the West Bank, killing Palestinians and carrying out illegal arrests and house demolitions.

The Al Aqsa Mosque has been raided by Israeli settlers, ministers, deputies, army and police forces recently, whilst an additional six Palestinian security agencies with an annual budget of over one billion dollars are permanently in place to subjugate and suppress civilian activists.

At present the situation looks ever more dire for the Palestinian community. In light of this, the Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK, warmly invites you to attend a seminar and discussion on the human rights situation in Palestine.

Lawyers from leading law firms, experts and campaigners, will discuss the situation and ways in which pressure can be brought to bear on the Israeli occupation government, to end its policy of violating Palestinian civilians' basic human rights.
