Israel facing heightened global isolation over Gaza war crimes

Over 140 countries have recognized Palestine as a state. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has ordered Israel to cease its months-long onslaught on the besieged Gaza Strip but the regime has utterly turned a blind eye to the call. Spain has filed a request with the court to join South Africa in a case against Israel for mass killings of Palestinians. According to global media reports, the United Nations will release a list of countries and groups that have committed war crimes against children during conflicts in its annual report. Israel’s ambassador to the UN, Gilad Erdan, expressed anger on Friday over the inclusion of Israel in the list. The list, which is expected to be published at the end of June, will also include the Gaza-based resistance movements of Hamas and Islamic Jihad to maintain a balance. The report focuses on violations of children’s rights in war-torn areas.
Both Hamas and Islamic Jihad are designated as what are claimed to be “terrorist” organizations by the US and some EU countries. The war between Israel and Hamas-led resistance groups in Gaza has now entered its ninth month. According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, one in every twenty Palestinians has been killed or injured by Israeli military actions, and most of Gaza’s 2.4 million population have been displaced, searching for shelter and food. In Tel Aviv, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s war cabinet is facing severe criticism. Extremist Zionists in the cabinet are determined to eliminate every point of Palestinian resistance and oppose any ceasefire in the war.
