Israeli Military Escalates Bombing of Civilian Homes in Rafah Amid Threats of Ground Invasion by Al-Haq, Al-Mezan, Palestinian Centre for Human Rights

PLEASE TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW AND SEND YOUR LETTER TO THE UN OFFICE OF THE SPECIAL ADVISER ON THE PREVENTION OF GENOCIDE AND THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT PROSECUTOR.

[T]he Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), Al Mezan, and Al-Haq — reiterate their warning of the heightened risk of launching a large-scale military invasion on Rafah, and warn that Israeli forces may seek, through intimidation by bombing homes and killing large numbers of civilians, intensifying artillery shelling, and breaking the sound barrier, to force the population into displacement again. This pattern has been observed in recent weeks with the escalation of Israeli threats to attack Rafah.

Therefore, we call on the international community to take serious and immediate action to compel Israel to end its ongoing genocidal military campaign, and adhere to the binding decisions of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ordering the end of all genocidal acts in Gaza.
