Israeli crimes in Gaza

UN rights experts accuse Israel of intentionally starving the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. They say the regime attacks humanitarian convoys and civilians seeking such aid. The UN experts said Israel has opened fire on humanitarian aid convoys on several occasions, despite the fact that the convoys shared their coordinates with the regime. The report also mentions that Israel is intercepting deliveries at checkpoints, bombing humanitarian convoys and shooting at civilians seeking assistance. On 29 February, Israeli troops fired on crowds of Palestinians at an aid center in the Gaza City, killing at least 112 people and injuring hundreds more. The experts called on Tel Aviv to end its campaign of starvation and targeting of civilians. Meanwhile, a senior UN official says the international community must flood Gaza with aid in order to prevent further loss of life from starvation in the blockaded territory.

West support for Israel

Pro-Palestinian advocacy groups in Canada have filed a lawsuit against the government for allowing companies to export military equipment and technology to Israel. The lawsuit has been filed by the Canadian Lawyers for International Human Rights group, the Palestinian Al-Haq organization and four individuals. It says Canadian laws ban military exports to Israel because there is a substantial risk that they could be used to violate international law and commit crimes against women and children. Since the start of Israel’s genocidal war in Gaza, Canada has authorized at least 21-million-dollar worth of new permits for military exports to the regime. The United States and the Netherlands are also facing lawsuits over the Israeli onslaught on Gaza. Last month, a Dutch court ordered the government to block all exports of F-35 fighter jet parts to Israel.

Yemen anti-US operations

The Yemeni army says it has carried out fresh operations against US targets in the Red sea. In a statement, the Yemeni armed forces said it targeted two American warships with a number of drones and missiles in the strategic waterway. The statement also said the attacks were in response to earlier airstrikes by the US and the UK on Yemen and also in solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza. Yemeni forces have targeted over two-dozen Israeli-run or Israeli-bound vessels in the Red Sea, since the beginning of the Israeli genocidal war in Gaza. Sana’a says its operations will continue until the regime stops its onslaught on Gaza and ends the siege on the Palestinian territory.
