Israel's actions in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) are an inherent violation of the rights of Palestinians living there. Adalah contributes to the defense and promotion of Palestinians' rights both through its international advocacy – lobbying international organizations and foreign governments to ensure Israel honors its commitments to respect international human rights law and international humanitarian law – and through the filing of petitions before the Israeli courts. Adalah closely monitors rights abuses in the OPT, both during and outside of military offensives, and submits impact litigation cases to expose and challenge these practices.
Adalah has argued cases dealing with the denial of tort compensation to Palestinians harmed by Israeli military operations, demanding investigations into home demolitions; fighting against techniques of collective punishment imposed against the civilian population; and seeking an end to inhumane detention conditions at Israeli facilities.
