PA uses B’Tselem and Peace Now reports to back up their claims that "settlers attack Palestinians… with the participation of the occupation forces" and site these extreme left wing publications as proof

Headline: “The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs praises the reports of the Israeli human rights organizations on the settlers’ crimes against our people”



“The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates praised the two reports of the Israeli Peace Now movement and Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem on the topic of the settlers’ crimes against our people, and views them as a worthy basis for discussions and dialogues with states in the relevant UN institutions and councils, and as an incentive for its activity to save the two-state solution from the clutches of settlement.

In a statement issued yesterday, Saturday [Nov. 13, 2021], the ministry noted that there is agreement in the reports of the Palestinian, Israeli, and international legal organizations and human rights organizations that the attacks by the settlers and their armed terror organizations against the Palestinians and against the foundations of their existence in their homeland have broken records and crossed all the red lines in recent months, and this is with the participation of the occupation forces or under their protection and auspices, and many times they pounce on the civilians to abuse them and prevent them from defending themselves from the settlers’ violence…

The statement also said: ‘The international community should be embarrassed in light of the crimes and violations against the Palestinians that were documented by the Peace Now movement. And it must stop the silence and bear its legal and moral responsibility that is imposed on it to provide international protection to our people, and to stop relying on the morality of the occupation army, the settler gangs, and the leaders of colonialist Israel, and to take the necessary practical steps to implement the resolutions regarding the Palestinian cause, which will ensure that the Israeli occupation of the land of the State of Palestine will end immediately.’”
