Israeli group says Palestinians failing to get justice

Rights groups says most police probes into violence against Palestinians by Israelis fail as not investigated properly.

    A leading Israeli human rights group has said the vast majority of police investigations into violence against Palestinians by Israeli citizens living in illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank result in no convictions.
     
    The Yesh Din organisation said 85 percent of all cases are closed because police fail to investigate crimes properly.

    According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian affairs, in 2014, there were 399 assaults by settlers against Palestinians.

    Al Jazeera requested an interview with Israeli police officials to comment on the findings of Yesh Din's latest report, but they declined.
