Human rights and fundamental freedoms have formed the main core of the struggle against injustices for centuries. The aim of these efforts is to provide individuals with basic rights. However, Contrary to Humanitarian Law that applies only in armed conflicts, Human Rights are indispensable at all times, in war and peace alike. But since armed conflicts are a threat to the survival of the State, Questions then arise: Can governments derogate from Human Rights in time of such conflicts? If so, is this suspension absolute or conditional? If conditional, under what circumstances can governments employ such measures? Ultimately, if a State chooses to apply the suspension Clause, to what extent is it in compliance with its conditions? This article attempts to answer the questions above with a focus on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
