Press Release 12, Oct, 2023
ANHAR Network denounces the position of some international official bodies which claim to be concerned about human rights yet at the same time practice a double standard in relation to what is happening in Palestine.
ANHAR warns that the blind support for Israel’s right to defend itself is being used as a license to practice serious violations of human rights and the rules of engagement according to International Charter.
The Israeli army’s bombing of homes in Gaza with a huge amount of explosives from aircraft, barges, and cannons, which led to the killing of a large number of civilians, including more than 140 children, is in stark contrast to the right to life and the Fourth Geneva Convention, which stipulates the duty to protect civilians in the event of conflict and spare them the effects of Conflict.
In addition, the Israeli government announced the tightening of the siege on the Gaza Strip, including cutting off electricity, water, and food for more than 2 million people, which falls under internationally criminalized collective punishment.
Anhar Network denounces these serious violations of human rights and calls on the governments of the free world to raise their voices loudly against these violations and to pressure the Israeli government to spare civilians the scourge of war and not to use the lives of civilians and children as a bargaining card in the conflict.
