Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK (AOHR UK), stressed that the Israeli occupation air strikes that resulted in the killing of 15 people and wounding 20 others, including 4 children and 4 women, is a new crime added to a series of crimes committed by the occupation on the Palestinian Territories.
The occupation government of Benjamin Netanyahu has never stopped violating all the basic rights of Palestinians, especially the right to life, while the world is watching.
Since the beginning of this year, the IOF has killed at least 130 people, including 25 children. All these crimes, which have been repeated over the years, have passed without any kind of accountability or any serious measure taken by the international community to bring perpetrators to justice or deter them from these crimes.
Shedding Palestinian blood on a daily basis indicates that the international humanitarian community is facing a crime of religious occupation that allows committing of all sorts of serious crimes against the Palestinian people.
The ongoing silence of the international community on these crimes and the use of a discourse that equates the victim with the criminal encourages the occupation to commit more crimes.
AOHR UK emphasised the urgent need to provide protection for the Palestinian people suffering under an extremist Israeli government that calls for the shedding of Palestinian blood, building settlements and desecrating sanctities.
AOHR UK renewed its call on the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court to investigate the files submitted to him and to take serious steps to pursue perpetrators of crimes against the Palestinians and bring them to Justice.
