Subject / An urgent appeal to stop the Israeli escalation and the killing Palestinian civilians and the targeting of civilian facilities in the Gaza Strip
The International Commission to Support Palestinians’ Rights (ICSPR) urges you in accordance with your legal mandate, to take immediate action to force the Israeli occupation forces to halt their operations and escalation of hostilities on the Gaza Strip, which target towns, villages and camps without discrimination.
Where since the dawn hours on Tuesday, 12 November 2019, the Israeli occupation forces escalated their crimes, the first crime was the assassination of the citizen: Bahaa Abu Al-Ataya (42 years), commander of the Eastern Province in Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, in the same time of targeting the house of the leader of the Islamic Jihad movement, Mr.: Akram Al-Ajouri, in the Syrian capital, killing his son, and bombing a number of civilian facilities, apartments and residential buildings, resulting in injuring a number of Palestinian civilians.
ICSPR warns that these attacks are a prelude to a wider aggression that only the Palestinian civilians will pay dearly its price, in light of the international community’s continued silence, therefore, ICSPR calls on you to work to undermine the Israeli plans to continue the bloodshed of unarmed and innocent civilians in the Gaza Strip, and stop the implementation of the law of the jungle at the expense of the rule of law, and work hard to discourage Israel and its military forces from continuing the policy of killing civilians and targeting their civilian property, and also urges you to support the rights of the Palestinian people, especially the right to resist the occupier and self-determination, as it is established in the core of the international law.
