Geneva – A report published by the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor showed an escalation in violations by the Israeli authorities in Jerusalem in December 2019, approved by the highest Israeli political level, and with American support and international silence, amid acceleration of Israel's attempt to end the Palestinian presence and change the demographic character and identity of the city.

In its monthly report entitled "Violations until the last hour," the Geneva-based Group said that Israeli forces committed 495 violations of human rights in December which fall under over 16 patterns of human rights violations, the majority of which are complex violations.

Euro-Med Monitor documented in December 23 incidents of shootings and direct assaults by Israeli army in neighbourhoods of Jerusalem, which resulted in suffocation due to tear gas and bruises as a result of beating and abuse.
