In this episode of The Source, we interview Yasmine Ahmed, who is the UK Director of Human Rights Watch. We talk about the new report by Human Rights Watch: ‘A Threshold Crossed: Israeli Authorities and the Crimes of Apartheid and Persecution’, which states that Israeli authorities are committing crimes against humanity of apartheid and persecution. We examine the main findings of this report, examples of the crimes of apartheid and persecution and how they affect the Palestinian people. Finally, we discuss how the international community has reacted to the escalation of the conflict.
