Israel’s ‘secret evidence’ against Palestinians

Over the past few weeks I have been thinking a lot about Israel and the use of “secret evidence.”

In the years I’ve been covering Israel’s occupation of Palestine, it’s an issue that arises time and time again. Palestinians are criminalized and imprisoned, and their lives destroyed all because of a weapon that Israel can yield, without any question or consequence: secret evidence.

I’ve seen it used against children, human rights defenders, civil society organizations, NGO workers, activists, and ordinary Palestinians.
