Israel's Criminal Assault on the occupied State of Palestine

Gaza Under Fire

The latest Israeli criminal assault against the Palestinian people aims at targeting Palestinian national unity, weakening Palestinian institutions and enforce the disconnection between the West Bank & Gaza Strip. Its methods include the collective punishment of the Palestinian people throughout the occupied West Bank, including Israel, and the Gaza Strip. Alarmingly, in the past few days, the Israeli government has severely intensified its actions against the already besieged Gaza and its 1.7 million inhabitants. As an occupying power, Israel is required to comply with obligations under international humanitarian law. Nevertheless, it systematically continues to violate its obligations through unrelenting colonization, expropriation and aggression in Palestine.

Israel still occupies the Gaza Strip

Despite their withdrawal from the colonies inside Gaza in 2005, Israel continues to occupy the Gaza Strip. The disengagement merely transformed the military occupation from one of physical presence inside Gaza into an occupation by siege, aimed at separating Gaza from the rest of the Occupied State of Palestine. Israel still maintains effective control over Gaza’s airspace, territorial waters and border crossings for both persons and goods.

Attacks against the Palestinian people under occupation must stop

The international community is under a moral, political and legal responsibility to protect the Palestinian people and to put an end to Israeli aggression in Palestine. Israeli bombardments and military offensives against the Palestinian people have left thousands dead and injured, and mass destruction in their wake. The regular airstrikes and draconian siege against Gaza have left it unable to rebuild and redevelop its infrastructures in the aftermath of the major Israeli aggressions of December 2008/January 2009 and November 2012. The people of Gaza still suffer from the effects of Israeli policies of separation between Gaza and the rest of the Occupied State of Palestine.
