Amnesty International said that Israeli occupation's police have committed a catalogue of violations against Palestinians.

Amnesty International said that Israeli occupation's police carried out a discriminatory repressive campaign including sweeping mass arrests, using unlawful force against peaceful protesters, and subjecting detainees to torture and other ill-treatment, during the Israeli attack on Gaza and afterwards.

The organization also said that the occupation's police have also failed to protect Arab Israelis from premeditated attacks by groups of armed Jewish supremacists, even when plans were publicized in advance and police knew or should have known of them.

"The evidence gathered by Amnesty International paints a damning picture of discrimination and ruthless excessive force by Israeli police against Palestinians in Israel and in occupied East Jerusalem," said Saleh Higazi, who is the Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International.
