Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Will Israel be held accountable for ‘apartheid’ of Palestinians? | Inside Story” – below is their description.
‘Apartheid’ was first used in South Africa to describe the segregation and oppression of people based on their race.
Human Rights Watch says that’s exactly what’s happening in Israel.
It accuses the government of enforcing policies to maintain its dominance over Palestinians.
Israel has dismissed similar accusations before, while Palestinians say it’s a solid account of the atrocities they face.
So can anything be done to hold Israeli leaders accountable?
