Styreleder Einarsen i samtale med Gaza-spesialrapportør

Hvordan påvirker okkupasjonen menneskerettighetene til menneskene som bor i Gaza og på Vestbredden? Og hvordan har dette endret seg siden 7. oktober 2023?

Dette var tema under en samtale mellom ICJ-styreleder, Terje Einarsen og FNs spesialrapportør for Palestina, Francesca Albanese.

Albanese har vært spesialrapportør siden mai 2022. 25. mars ble rapporten hennes, Anatomy of a Genocide publisert av FN. Her understreker hun at Israel har ødelagt Gaza.

Sammendrag fra rapporten

After five months of military operations, Israel has destroyed Gaza. Over 30,000 Palestinians have been killed, including more than 13,000 children. Over 12,000 are presumed dead and 71,000 injured, many with life-changing mutilations. Seventy percent of residential areas have been destroyed. Eighty percent of the whole population has been forcibly displaced. Thousands of families have lost loved ones or have been wiped out. Many could not bury and mourn their relatives, forced instead to leave their bodies decomposing in homes, in the street or under the rubble. Thousands have been detained and systematically subjected to inhuman and degrading treatment. The incalculable collective trauma will be experienced for generations to come.

By analysing the patterns of violence and Israel’s policies in its onslaught on Gaza, this report concludes that there are reasonable grounds to believe that the threshold indicating Israel’s commission of genocide is met. One of the key findings is that Israel’s executive and military leadership and soldiers have intentionally distorted jus in bello principles, subverting their protective functions, in an attempt to legitimize genocidal violence against the Palestinian people.
