The Human Rights Organization of Judea and Samaria or Yesha Human Rights Organization (Hebrew: ארגון זכויות אדם ביש"ע‎) is an Israeli non-governmental organization (NGO) headed by right-wing Hebron activist Orit Struk that began operating in 1999. The organization's goals are to defend the human and civil rights of Jewish Israelis living in the West Bank, and formerly in the Gaza Strip. The organization claims that these citizens - commonly referred to as settlers - are not adequately defended by other human rights organizations it identifies as left-wing such as B'Tselem. The organization cooperates and uses the legal advice of the Legal Forum for the Land of Israel.

One example of its activities is to report on alleged discrimination of settlers by the Israeli Police.[1]
