Palestine surveillance: Israel builds a digital database on West Bank residents
Published on Dec 1, 2021
Israel is reportedly developing a system of surveillance on Palestinians in the occupied West Bank with the use of face-scanning cameras and smartphone apps.
Human rights activists say it amounts to an enormous database of personal information on the residents there via the use of an official smartphone Blue Wolf app.
The military uses it to scan a Palestinian's face and has access to their photos, family histories and education.
