The ministry, headed by Gilad Erdan, leads Israel’s campaign of smear and sabotage against human rights groups and the global Palestine solidarity movement.
Al-Haq calls these comments “incitement and hate speech.”
The human rights group says the spasm of death threats came after 4IL published an article accusing Jabarin, a human rights defender who has won international recognition and awards, of “terrorism.”
The Israeli government published the article smearing Al-Haq after the organization held an event celebrating its 40th anniversary attended by academics, diplomats and officials, including from the UN and European Union.
“The attack is the latest in a large-scale campaign against Palestinian and other civil society organizations working to promote and protect the rule of law and human rights standards for the Palestinian people,” according to Al-Haq.'
