Rights group: World silence at Israel will encourage further aggression

GAZA, (PIC)– World silence has given Israel a pretext to continue its war crimes, as the militant state had launched a previous attack on Gaza that left hundreds dead and thousands injured, proving Israel’s condescending attitude towards international law, the Addameer prisoners’ support and human rights association said.

The group warned of continued attacks after the death toll of the last three days of Israeli aggression had climbed to 17, including two women, a child and severlal civilians, while scores more have sustained various injuries.

Addameer has called on the world community to shoulder its responsibilities to protect civilians and their property as Israeli military and political leaders threaten to take more victims in the Gaza Strip.

The group called on the states that signed the fourth Geneva convention to declare a clear stance against Israel’s refusal to abide by those conventions on the Palestinian territories as Israel has also signed the treaty.

In a separate statement, the Al Mezan center for human rights has classified the recent attacks on the Strip as ”war crimes” and called on the world community for urgent action to stop Israel’s abuses.

The group has called on the UN General Assembly to ensure that the International Criminal Court investigate accusations of war crimes listed in the Goldstone report as recommended by the UN Human Rights Council.




“We ask, how many more dead corpses of Palestinian children and women does the international community need to see in order to act?”
