A three-member UN team investigative team has received accounts of grave economic, health and human rights conditions in the occupied Palestinian territory, particularly in Gaza, from witnesses it interviewed in Jordan. The UN Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People and Other Arabs of the Occupied Territories expressed serious concern about reports it received about the ?strangulation? of the Palestinian economy, the impact of the separation wall on the human rights of Palestinians, and the condition of the Palestinians detained in Israeli prisons and detention centers.
