Physicians for Human Rights - Israel

Imprisoned until further notice

Three villages Deir al-Hatab, Azmut and Salem are located on the eastern outskirts of Nablus. Since the last quarter of 2002 two deep trenches were dug by the Israeli army around the three villages totally preventing access. A joint expedition of the WHO, UN agencies, and human rights organisations points to severe impact of closures on health, sanitary conditions and environment.
