The International Commission to Support Palestinians’ Rights “ICSPR” follows with great disapproval and concern the incident that occurred at dawn today “12 April”, where unknown persons shot the house and car of lawyer Hatem Shaheen in the city of Hebron,causing no casualties.

·ICSPR warns of the consequences of complacency with this crime, which constitutes a real threat to civil and civil peace.

·ICSPR calls on the Public Prosecution to open a serious investigation into this crime to ensure that all those proven engaged are held accountable.

·ICSPR calls on law enforcement officials to carry out their duties towards preserving the security and safety of society.
