London- on Tuesday the International Platform of NGOs Working for Palestine sent an urgent complaint note to a number of UN organizations and UN special rapporteurs regarding the situation of human rights in the Occupied Territories; about Israeli  repeatedly assaulting the Palestinian Civil Organizations and civilians; the platform called on every civil society organization to devote all possible efforts in exposing the Israeli aggression against civilians and their properties, and demanding for an immediate intervention to stop these criminal attacks.

The International Platform illustrated in the complaint note through attaching a number of pictures, that the Israeli occupation forces targeted a number of civilian facilities this morning, including the Office of the Independent Commission for Human Rights ICHR. This has resulted in the fall of a number of casualties and deaths, in addition to massive damages to civilian properties.

Reflecting the demands of "urgent and effective action" for cessation of targeting the Palestinian Civil Organizations, the International Platform contacted the Civil Society Department of the United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner, and sent a complaint note to the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Rights to Freedom of Peaceful Assembly, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967, Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders.
