The Jerusalem Center for Social and Economic Rights (JCSER) declared in a press release of 11 March that the Israeli closure of the West Bank was "a gross and clear violation of article 33 of the fourth Geneva Convention."  The closure was in response to numerous threats of terrorist attacks during the period of the festival of Purim. These warnings were proved credible after three suspected suicide bombers were caught inside Israel on the 21 March and 2 April and a suicide bombing on March 30 killed four Israelis outside the Kedumim settlement. This exemplifies JCSER’s continued use of human rights rhetoric to attack Israel.
