HR Day 2017 - Family of Avera Mengistu at the EU Delegation

For Human Rights Day 2017, the EU in Israel together with EU Member States Embassies embarked on 3 days of activities looking at various human rights issues:

From right to housing for the Israeli Arab minority in Haifa, right to education for children, dialogue between civils society and government to improve human rights to rights of Palestinians in occupied territories.

We hosted the family of Avera Mengistu to discuss his rights under international humanitarian law. Avera Mengistu has been missing for over three years having crossed into the Gaza Strip, apparently held in a very clear violation of his human rights.

Human rights are for all!
