في مثل هذا اليوم، قتلت قوات الأمن المصرية حوالي 900 شخص في فض اعتصامي رابعة والنهضة. رغم مرور 7 سنوات على تلك المذبحة، لا تزال السلطات المصرية تحمل إرثها القاتم وتواصل حملتها القمعية على حقوق الإنسان باسم "الحرب على الإرهاب".

Any process aimed at a just and sustainable peace in Israel/Palestine must include dismantling of illegal Israeli settlements, an end to systematic human rights abuses, and justice and reparation for victims of crimes under international law.

No diplomatic deal can change the legal obligations of Israel as the occupying power under international humanitarian law and international human rights law, nor deprive Palestinians of their rights and protections guaranteed under international law.

Make no mistake: As reported, the deal does not include Israel completely abandoning plans for further illegal annexation of the occupied West Bank, and comes while Israel continues to build illegal settlements and systematically abuse Palestinian human rights there.

Al-Erian's death is a reminder of the harsh conditions endured by prisoners , amid inadequate access to health care and risks posed by Covid-19. The Egyptian authorities must immediately release those arbitrarily detained, including activists and human rights defenders.

In 2018, a Cairo court sentenced 75 people to death, including Essam El-Erian, in an unfair mass trial in connection to the al-Rabaa sit-in. Tomorrow, 14 August, marks the 7th anniversary of its dispersal, during which some 900 people were killed by security with impunity.

El-Erian complained during court hearings about being deliberately denied health care, adequate food and items of personal hygiene in prison & about being ill-treated in solitary confinement. He said in court: “We are being killed in prison; they are taking their revenge.”

Former detainees told us that detention centres have become torture chambers, where protesters are forced to lie in dirt as police kick & beat them. They describe being stripped & subjected to sadistic beatings while listening to screams of other victims.

Instead of policing women online, the Egyptian government must prioritize investigating the widespread cases of sexual & gender-based violence against women and girls in Egypt and take real steps to combat gender discrimination in law and practice.

The Lebanese Government have violated the right to freedom of peaceful protest and failed to protect the right of life if it recklessly allowed the storage of dangerous explosives in Beirut. We stand with the people of Lebanon in their fight for accountability.

We call on the interim Ministry of Foreign Affairs to work with the relevant consulates and embassies to assist those documented and undocumented migrant workers who wish to return to their countries to do so as soon as possible.
