Israeli soldiers and settlers have cracked down on the occupied West Bank since Hamas's shocking attack on Israel on October 7, killing at least 55 and arresting over 700 Palestinians, including several prominent lawmakers. "People are worried. All of this is unprecedented," says Sari Bashi, program director at Human Rights Watch in Ramallah. Bashi is co-founder of Israeli human rights group Gisha, which works against apartheid policies that affect Palestinians, and urges U.S. lawmakers to address the human rights violations that led to this conflict. "No U.S. policy toward Israel-Palestine will be successful if it doesn't address the abuses on the ground."
