12 NGOs, including Al-Haq, Addameer, Al- Dameer, Al Mezan Center, BADIL, DCI-P and PCHR signed a "Joint Letter of Palestinian Human Rights Organisations Submitted to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on the Occasion of his Visit to the Occupied Palestinian Territory."  The letter erased any Palestinian responsibility for the conflict, ignored terrorism, and condemned the "Israeli occupation [which] has severe and long-term repercussions on the human rights of every Palestinian, and by extension contributes to an escalation of the conflict with repercussions on the prospects for regional peace and security."
