Human Rights Watch issued a report on Sunday calling for an end to Israel's ban of international human rights groups in Gaza. The group stated that such a ban raises concerns that Israel has something to hide in regards to its military operations in Gaza.
Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director of Human Rights Watch, said in a statement to the media “Israel's refusal to allow human rights groups access to Gaza raises a strong suspicion that there are things it doesn't want us to see or the world to know about its military operation there. If Israel has nothing to hide, why is it refusing to allow us in?”
