The Al Mezan Center for Human Rights expresses its deep regret at the loss of Dr.
As-Sarraj was a special person to Al Mezan and his death is an incredible loss for our community.
As-Sarraj is best known for his human rights activism, for which he remains a pillar of Palestinian human rights defense through his work as the founder of the Gaza Community Mental Health Program.
As-Sarraj was also a member of the board of commissioners of the Independent Commission of Human Rights.
We will always remember Dr.
As-Sarraj for his emphasis on the respect and protection of the person.
The principals that he taught us and embodied himself will live on without him.
We extend our support and deepest condolences to the As-Sarraj family and wish them strength and patience in this difficult time.
