Rights groups urge Israel to refrain from 'collectively punishing' Palestinians

A group of human rights organizations active in the West Bank sent a letter to Israeli security chiefs on Sunday, urging them to refrain from "collectively punishing the civilian Palestinian population in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as part of Operation Brother’s Keeper."
The group, including Amnesty International, B’Tselem, Rabbis for Human Rights and several others, expressed concern that "many of the military’s actions in the Occupied Territories do not directly serve the aim of locating and returning the three abducted Israelis and are severely and unnecessarily violating basic human rights."
