"Israel" calls on Amnesty not to release report documenting crimes
The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs attacks Amnesty International for its intention to publish a report documenting its crimes against the Palestinians and calls on it not to publish it.
"Israel" attacked a report that is to be published by Amnesty International on Tuesday and demanded that it be withdrawn.
The organization described the report as an "official landmark", adding that it contained "new research and analysis detailing violations by Israel against the Palestinian people."
It pointed out that the report documented the extensive confiscation of Palestinian land and property, unlawful killings, forced displacement, strict restrictions on movement, stressing that all these violations were components of an apartheid regime that amounts to "a crime against humanity under international law."

Amnesty International will hold a press conference in occupied al-Quds, tomorrow, Tuesday, to present the report.
On Monday, "Israel" requested that Amnesty International not publish an impending study accusing it of apartheid, claiming that the London-based international human rights organization's conclusions are "false, biased, and antisemitic."
Israeli FM Yair Lapid called Amnesty a "radical organization that echoes propaganda" and accused it of citing "lies" spread by what the occupation called "terrorist organizations." The Israeli FM claimed the organizations' accusations were also "antisemitic."
The International Human Rights Watch said in a report last year that "Israel" is committing crimes of apartheid.
