The International Community and Organizations once again disappoint the Palestinians and left them alone to face the Israeli criminality and American arrogance

The International Commission to Support Palestinians’ Rights (ICSPR) strongly condemns the continuation of the Israeli occupation forces to commit more killings against the demonstrators participating in the million demonstrators return march, while the occupation military and political leaders incite to kill and target the peaceful demonstrators.

According to data published by the Palestinian Ministry of Health, since the early hours of today (Monday, May 14, 2018), until 20:00 local time, the Israeli occupation forces have committed many serious violations against tens of thousands of peaceful Palestinian demonstrators, who were expressing their rejection of transferring the US embassy to Jerusalem, which result in the killing of 52 Palestinians and injuring more than 2410, including (6) journalists with live bullets.
At the same time, the Israeli occupation forces use of firearms and gas, to suppress the demonstrations in various cities and villages in the West Bank, reinforce that the Israeli occupation forces act according to a plan supported by a political decision of the highest level.
The Israeli occupation forces deliberate killing of Palestinian civilians and demonstrators is likely to raise the number of victims of the demonstrators, who have declared their intention to continue their peaceful protest and march, especially in light of the international role weakness to force Israel to stop the policy of killing demonstrators.
ICSPR affirms that the way the Israeli occupation forces deal with Palestinian demonstrators falls within the framework of implementing a systematic plan and a political decision from the highest levels in the Israeli occupation state, and indicates that the results of the monitoring and documentation carried out since the beginning of the march to date have shown that there is no danger to the lives of the occupation soldiers. Therefore:
1- ICSPR demands urgent and effective actions to protect the peaceful marches and stop the excessive use of lethal force by the occupation army.
2- ICSPR warns again the Israeli occupation against the policy of deliberate targeting and killing of peaceful demonstrators, and wars the international community against the continued silence on the Israeli crimes committed against the demonstrators and hold it accountable, considering this silence a green light for the occupation forces to continue to shed the blood of the defenseless demonstrators.
3- ICSPR warns of the continued inability of the international community to act to stop the Israeli crimes committed against the demonstrators, especially in Gaza Strip, and considers this deficit as a green light for the occupation forces to continue to shed the blood of unarmed demonstrators.
4- Calls upon the Palestinian leadership and diplomacy to activate their role by referring files of grave violations and Israeli war crimes under Article 14 of the Rome Charter, which will ensure ending impunity for the Israeli criminals and invite the Human Rights Council to an extraordinary session to discuss and condemn these grave violations against the peaceful demonstrators and lead to the establishment of a fact-finding committee to investigate the facts of the grave violations by the occupation forces against the demonstrators, and to take all measures to ensure the steadfastness of the citizens.
