Having completed a 5-day tour of the West Bank and Gaza, a "high-level delegation" of The International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) issued a July 17 press release calling on all Palestinian groups "to uphold the rule of law," and condemning human rights abuses by Palestinian factions, including torture and summary executions. During their visit to Gaza, the members of the mission met with three senior Hamas officials, including Gaza chief Ismail Haniyeh.  FIDH does not indicate that it held meetings with Israeli government officials. FIDH called upon Israel "to immediately and without condition release the 43 elected members of the Palestinian Legislative Council currently detained in Israel." Yet FIDH failed to demand that Palestinian groups, including Hamas, cease terrorist attacks against Israel.
