UN accuses Israel of ‘collection punishment’ against Palestinians after Tel Aviv terror attack

Israel’s response to Wednesday’s Tel Aviv terror attack that killed four Israelis could be considered collective punishment against Palestinians, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein said on Friday.

"We are also deeply concerned at the response of the Israeli authorities, which includes measures that may amount to prohibited collective punishment,” he said in a statement delivered by his spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani at a press conference in Geneva on Friday.

Such actions, he warned, could fuel further Palestinian violence against Israel.
