Palestinian human rights lawyer Salah Hammouri, who was deported by Israel after the government revoked his Jerusalem residency, arrives in Paris on December 18th, 2022. Hammouri, who also holds French citizenship, had been detained in an Israeli prison without charge since March. UN Human Rights Office spokesperson Jeremy Laurence condemned the Israeli government’s actions, saying that “deporting a protected person from occupied territory is a grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention, constituting a war crime.” Photo: Anne Paq/ Activestills.
