Israeli crimes in Gaza

Condemnations are pouring in from across the globe following the Israeli massacre of over 100 Palestinians who were waiting for life-saving humanitarian aid in northern Gaza. Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman described the attack on defenseless civilians as barbaric. Nasser Kan’ani said the shame of supporting and remaining silent towards the Israeli genocide will remain with the false champions of human rights in the US and Europe. Meanwhile, the UN aid chief expressed shock at the incident. Martin Griffiths said he was appalled at the killing of hundreds of people during the transfer of aid supplies in Gaza. The UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres also denounced the deadly attack.

Israel invasion of Rafah

The UN human rights chief has once again issued a stark warning against Israel's planned ground assault on the southern Gaza Strip city of Rafah. Turk told the UN Human Rights Council that an attack on Rafah would take the nightmare that is being inflicted on Gazans to a new dimension. He slammed the regime’s attacks and killings in Gaza as examples of Israel’s brutality and carnage. Turk stressed that there are no words to capture the horrors that are unfolding in Gaza. Rafah is the territory’s most populated area where over 1.5 million people are sheltering. They have nowhere safe to go, and many of them have already been displaced multiple times.

Plight of journalists in Gaza

Over 30 international media outlets have expressed solidarity with journalists working in the war-ravaged Gaza Strip, calling for their protection and freedom to report. The call came in an open letter coordinated by the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists. It was signed by leading global news agencies and newspapers. The letter said for nearly five months, journos in Gaza have been working in unprecedented conditions. It added that journalists are civilians and Israel must protect them as noncombatants according to international law. The regime has been deliberately and systematically targeting journalists and other media staff since the beginning of its Gaza genocide early last October. Over 130 journalists have lost their lives since then.
