Warning against the escalation of the Israeli occupation’s crimes in the wake of the Israeli Minister of Internal Security’s permission to hold the so-called flag march in the

occupied city of Jerusalem, and its passage through Bab al-Amud on May 29, 2022.

The International Commission to Support Palestinians’ Rights (ICSPR) highly appreciates your acclaimed role in serving the aspirations of the peoples of the world, including the State of Palestine.

With reference to the above subject, we are addressing you today to inform you of the provocative and aggressive decision against Jerusalem, its citizens and its sanctities, regarding allowing the so-called flags march.

the International Commission for Supporting Palestinian Rights (ICSPR) sent all the institutions of the international community Among them: UN Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences , UN Special Rapporteur on arbitrary detention , UN Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment , Secretary-General of the United Nations ,Secretary-General of the Organization of the League of Arab States , Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation , High Commissioner for Human Rights ,UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in the occupied Palestinian territory , Director of the Red Cross Mission in the Palestinian Territories.

The decision of the “Minister of Internal Security of the Occupation Government” issued on Wednesday, 18/5/2022, regarding allowing the holding of the so-called flag march in Jerusalem on the 29th of this month, is a blatant and aggressive attack on the feelings of Muslims, especially the Palestinians. A decision that inseparable from the open occupation war against Jerusalem, its citizens and its sanctities, and an extension of the continuous Israeli escalation campaigns that threaten to worsen and lose control of the situation.

The decision entails a violation of the sanctity of the holy places, and falls within the framework of the processes of Judaizing Jerusalem and perpetuating its annexation and attempting to abolish any aspect of the Palestinian presence in it, which is a blatant challenge to states’ positions and their condemnation of the occupation policy in Jerusalem, deliberately sabotaging efforts to stop the escalation and calm the situation, an insistence on adhering to the occupation, settlement and Judaization operations, and a rebellion against international law, United Nations resolutions and the international will for peace, and proves that the Israeli occupation chose to escalate against the Palestinian people.

ICSPR appreciates your role in promoting the rights of the Palestinian people and responding to violations against them, and stresses the danger of this decision, and its imminent repercussions that the Palestinian arena will face. Therefore, ICSPR calls on you to take a firm stance to pressure the Israeli occupation government to cancel this decision.

Press release,

74  years since the Nakba of Palestine

In light of a state of a suspicious international inability and silence, the Israeli military occupation continues to deny the rights of the Palestinian people and the principles of international law.

 

Sunday the 15th of May marks the 74th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, represented in the forced displacement of the Palestinian people in 1948 at the hands of Israeli gangs.

This occasion passes while the Israeli occupation state continues to refuse to submit to the legal and moral policies of the international community, and treats itself as if it is a state above international law.

The Israeli occupation’s denial all legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, especially the right of Palestinian refugees to return, which is stipulated in United Nations General Assembly Resolution No. 194 of December 11, 1948, and its denial of the right of the Palestinian people to political and economic self-determination would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the international community’s conspiracy of silence towards the rights of the Palestinian people.

There are hundreds of indications of the Israeli occupation persistence and insistence to implement the policy of racial discrimination and oppression against the Palestinians, including the continued confiscation of land and the expropriation of Palestinian properties, the fragmentation of the unity of Palestinian lands, the isolation and forcible separation of residents in the various Palestinian territories, and the imposition of severe restrictions on freedom of movement and the use of land and resources, and last but not least, the continuation of the siege on the Gaza Strip for more than 16 continuous years.

The International Commission to Support Palestinians’ Rights (ICSPR) reminds the international community of the tragedy and suffering that the Palestinian people have gone through since 1948, where they live in a state of asylum, dispersion and permanent violation of human rights, and stresses the right of the Palestinian people to return to their homes and restore their original property as a sacred and historical right based on the principles of absolute truth and justice before being based on the principles of international law. Therefore:

  1. ICSPR believes that the right of return and compensation is an inalienable right that can’t be bargained, negotiated or referendum, and that it fundamentally contradicts all suspicious calls for resettlement, displacement, integration, dissolution or compensation as an alternative to the right of return.
  2. ICSPR calls on the international community to urgently intervene to compel the Israeli occupation to stop its crimes committed against Palestinian civilians and their property in the Gaza Strip, and to work to hold the Israeli occupation accountable for the war crimes it commit.
  3. ICSPR calls on the international community not to sacrifice the principles of international law, and not to continue the conspiracy of silence by implementing what it was obligated in accordance with international law.
  4. ICSPR stresses the importance of providing international protection for Palestinian refugees, by working on issuing a UN resolution to grant the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Refugees the authority to protect refugees with an independent budget, in addition to its traditional tasks, in order to ensure that Palestinian refugees, wherever they are located, benefit from the international protection provided by the International Convention for the Protection of Refugees.
  5. ICSPR demand the Palestinian parties to restore national unity, reactivate the electoral process that was suspended without real justification by a presidential decree, and rebuild the Palestine Liberation Organization to ensure its ability to respond to all the current challenges facing the Palestinian cause.
  6. ICSPR urges the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to activate the role of Palestinian embassies around the world, in a way that enhances their diplomatic moves to triumph for the rights of the Palestinian people, provided that to be within the framework of a clearly defined national strategy, and not on a seasonal or partisan basis.

Press Release

Reporting the assassination of the Palestinian journalist: Shireen Abu Akleh.

 

 

The International Commission to Support Palestinians’ Rights (ICSPR) highly appreciates your keenness and the keenness of the permanent International Criminal Court to narrow the scope of impunity.

With regard to the above subject, we would like to inform you of the circumstances of the assassination of the journalist: Sherine Abu Akleh “Al-Jazeera correspondent”, in order to urge you, in the name of humanity and justice, to conduct preliminary investigations to complete the course of the preliminary study launched by your office years ago, considering that starting the preliminary investigation will deter the perpetrators of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The Israeli military occupation forces stormed Jenin camp at 6:45 am this Wednesday, May 11, 2022, and directly targeted a number of journalists covering the events, despite wearing blue jackets with distinctive badges and protective helmets. The directly targeting resulted in injuring the journalist Shireen Abu Akleh (51 years), with a live bullet in the head, and the journalist Ali Sadiq Salim Smoudi (55 years), who works as a producer for Al-Jazeera, with a live bullet in the back.

Due to the occupation forces obstructing providing first aid to the injured by deliberately continuing to shoot at anyone who tried to approach them (as shown in the visual documentation), ambulances were able to transport the two injured to Bin Sina Hospital in Jenin. At around 7:15 am, the medical staff in the hospital announced the death of journalist Abu Akleh of her injuries.

In the same context, the Palestinian Forensic Medicine Institute confirmed the preliminary results of the autopsy of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, that the bullet that hit her was a direct lethal bullet, which caused extensive lacerations to the brain and skull.

Several videos documenting the crime or part of it showed that the location of journalist Sherine Abu Akleh and her colleagues was not a location of armed clashes, and that the source of the shooting came from the Israeli occupation forces side.

The location of the injury “below the ear” is an open area, not covered by the helmet, which indicates that the targeting of Abu Akleh was deliberate and not random. All of these indicators refute the Israeli government’s allegations regarding the murder of journalist Shireen Abu Alaka.

Moreover, the Israeli announcement to open an investigation into the crime, can’t be trusted in light of the experiences of the operational investigation system followed by the occupation forces, which enjoy unprecedented immunity from the Israeli judiciary.

In addition to all field facts which confirm that the Israeli military occupation forces executed the journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, the old and present Israeli behavior towards journalists and civilians in the occupied Palestinian territories clearly indicates the Israeli desire, planning, and implementation of crimes against journalists, where since the beginning of 2000 to date, the Israeli occupation has killed 23 journalists working in the occupied Palestinian territories in its quest to assassinate the truth.

Those who follow up the Israeli crimes and violations are certain that its warlike behavior towards journalists, media professionals and journalistic institutions operating in Palestine reflects Israeli plans that deliberately target journalists to limit their ability to report field facts.

ICSPR is addressing you today in the name of humanity and justice as indivisible moral and legal values, to urge you to:

  1. Include the murder of the journalist Sherine Abu Akleh to the file of grave and serious violations committed by the Israeli occupation forces in the occupied Palestinian territories.
  2. Take clear public positions regarding the crimes of the Israeli occupation against Palestinian civilians, including journalists, emphasizing that these crimes amount to war crimes stipulated in the Rome Statute, and that the occupation deliberately undermines the international protection granted to journalists under the Geneva Conventions and its protocols.
  3. Take a step forward on the Palestinian track, by actually starting preliminary investigations, which would achieve the required deterrence to limit Israeli military plans that contradict the principles of international humanitarian law.

Disrupting or delaying the work of the principle of international accountability means encouraging the Israeli occupation forces to commit more crimes described in the Statute of the Court, the four Geneva Conventions, especially the Fourth Convention of 1949 and the First Additional Protocol of 1977.
