Human Rights Watch accused Israel of "serious human rights violations" in its yearly report on human rights abuses released on Sunday.

The report charged IDF soldiers with using "unnecessary lethal force" in repelling demonstrators who attempted to infiltrate Israel's border fences with Syria and Lebanon in 'Naksa Day and 'Nakba Day' protests in May and June.

Human Rights Watch attributed 37 deaths to IDF military strikes in the Gaza Strip and policing operations in the West Bank.

The report decried the continuation of the blockade of the Gaza Strip, accusing Israel of "hindering the rebuilding of Gaza’s devastated economy."
