We are writing to you today to inform you about the Israeli occupation troops’ savage assault against the Gaza Strip. The Israeli occupation force launched a military operation against the Gaza Strip at dawn on Tuesday, May 9, 2023, using dozens of airplanes. As a result, 13 martyrs were slaughtered, including four children and four women. More than 20 people were hurt, and 11 homes were entirely demolished, with more suffering minor damage.
The Israeli attacks coincided with the beginning of Israeli occupation forces’ efforts to tighten the illegal blockade of the Gaza Strip. This is accomplished by blocking the (Beit Hanoun and Karm Abu Salem) crossings for arrivals and departures until further notice, thus exacerbating the Gaza Strip’s humanitarian catastrophe.
In accordance with the standards of the Fourth Geneva Convention and the Rome Statute establishing the Permanent International Criminal Court, Israel’s escalation in the Gaza Strip, murders, targeting of civilians, extrajudicial killings, and targeting of civilian property constitute systematic state terrorism, a grave violation of international law, and constitute a described and fully constituted war crime,we urge you to act immediately in order to force Israel’s occupation to halt its ongoing hostilities in the Gaza Strip and to take steps to open a serious investigation into occupation crimes against civilians and civilian property in order to prevent the occupying leaders from enjoying impunity.
We are hoping that you will act firmly. Tomorrow may be too late, since the people of Gaza see your contributions and actions as a lever to ensure their right to a dignified human existence, as do all other peoples.
