UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, International Criminal Court Prosecutor, International Court of Justice President: Investigate the Possibility that Israel is Committing the Crime of Genocide Against the Indigenous Palestinian People.
“We don’t know how long this attack is going to go. How long it could possibly go. We know with pain the comparisons to the Warsaw ghetto. We know what the Nazis did to the Warsaw ghetto. And everyone here who has seen any of the videos of the attacks on schools, the attacks on a playground, kids on swings, 4 young boys playing soccer on a beach. These aren’t military targets. But maybe the worst target was the bombing of the power station. Gaza’s flat and sandy and when you knock out the power, then the ability of even pumping water for sanitation, for sewage. That is beyond criminal. That is genocide.”
The crimes are staggering, the destruction massive. Israel is creating a 3-kilometer strip of scorched earth around Gaza City that eats up about 44 percent of the Gaza Strip, already the most densely populated place on earth. (U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs)… The war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Gaza today are the latest stage of an ongoing campaign of ethnic cleansing and genocide against the Indigenous people of this land.
