Resource: 'Mock' law enforcement in the West Bank

Only 7.4 percent of West Bank Israeli police investigations following complaints from Palestinian victims of offenses committed against them or their property by Israeli civilians result in indictments. The remaining investigations are closed, in most cases (some 85 percent), due to investigative failure, largely because investigators were unable to find suspects or collect enough evidence for an indictment.

A new report by Israeli human rights organization Yesh Din discusses the reasons for the failure to enforce the law on Israeli civilians in the West Bank. An analysis closed case files reveals substandard investigations characterized by failures and deficiencies at every stage.
