On the one hand, Israel is building new train and bus lines, and new subway lines, that will ease overcrowding and improve safety for commuters.
On the other hand, it is building more and more expensive new trains, which are more vulnerable to attacks by Islamist terrorists.
Israel’s new railway security measures are designed to limit the amount of trains that can pass through the country’s southern border with Egypt and allow for more efficient transit.
The Israeli government is investing $1.4 billion to build rail tunnels and track infrastructure in the country, but the plans for the countrys new train security scheme, dubbed Tzfat, have drawn sharp criticism from international human rights groups, human rights organizations, and even a few of its own officials.
According to Israeli rights groups and international human right organizations, Israel’s plans are an infringement of international human and civil rights, including the right to peaceful assembly and association, as well as the right of Palestinians to return to their homes.
The proposed new security measures, which have been in the works for years, are the result of an agreement reached in 2015 between the Israeli government and the Israeli rights organization B’Tselem.
B’Teslem is an Israeli human rights group that focuses on the protection of Palestinians from violence and other violations of their human rights.
The deal includes provisions to create an additional security committee to deal with threats posed by Hamas, which is affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamic Jihad movement.
In return for the new measures, the Israeli authorities are providing more security measures for the construction of the new trains.
But on Wednesday, the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PPSR), a group that tracks Israeli human and security rights violations, called the Tzfats “one of the most important developments in Israel’s military and police strategy in the recent years.”
The Israeli authorities have been building security barriers and infrastructure to slow the movement of Palestinian and Israeli civilians, which include new security checkpoints, a fence that runs along the Jordan River, and the construction and operation of military roads and tunnels that are connected to Israeli military infrastructure.
Israeli police, military, and intelligence agencies have also been conducting raids and detentions on Palestinian homes and businesses in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, as part of the Israeli security forces’ “Operation Protective Edge,” which was launched to end the rocket fire from Gaza and the Palestinian terror group Hamas.
The new security system has been criticized by the United Nations and human rights activists for being an overreach, as it is not clear if the new security plan will actually work, or if it will create a new cycle of violence, or whether it will actually result in less violence.
But the Israeli military and security forces have been increasingly using excessive force against Palestinians in recent months.
According to data from Israeli military records, Israeli forces killed more than 2,700 Palestinians, mostly civilians, during the first seven months of the year, compared to just 1,500 killed during the same period last year.
In addition, there have been at least three fatal attacks on Israeli soldiers, including an attack on a soldier on the Israel-Egypt border in September.
Israeli military spokesmen have dismissed the complaints, saying the army will continue to use force in any way necessary to protect Israel’s citizens.
In response to the TZfats, a coalition of human rights and rights groups released a statement on Wednesday calling the plan “dangerous” and saying that it is an attack “against the right and dignity of all the Israeli citizens.”
“The Israeli security authorities have failed to provide any justification for their policies and decisions, they have failed even to acknowledge that they are discriminatory,” the group said.
“We call on the Israeli police and army to end their discriminatory policies and end their violence, including on Palestinians and Israeli citizens, and we urge the international community to demand that Israel immediately withdraw from the new plans.”PPSLER is a nonprofit organization with the mission to ensure the full implementation of the Human Rights Council’s human rights obligations.
