ISLAMABAD: 24 Jan 2023 – The State of Palestine calls on the international community to urgently intervene to protect the Palestinian people and prevent the imminent demolition and erasure of entire Palestinian villages, families, and cities.
Settler organizations, Israeli governments and officials, and Israel’s tainted judiciary system share the same objective and commit the same crime: illegal annexation by way of displacing the Palestinian people and replacing them with illegal Jewish settlers.
The incremental erasure of Khan Al-Ahmar and the forcible displacement of the Palestinian people is a national project undertaken by all branches of Israeli governments and facilitated by Israel’s tainted judiciary system.
The State of Palestine recalls that in 2018 the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court warned that the demolition and displacement of Khan Al-Ahmar is a war crime.
We call on the International Criminal Court and the Prosecutor to act quickly and warn Israeli officials of the criminality inherent in their policies and to deter the commission of crimes under its jurisdiction.
The international community has a responsibility and indeed an obligation to stand up to its principles and values and hold Israeli officials accountable for their crimes;
Accommodating Israeli crimes will only embolden perpetrators to continue their crimes and undermine international peace and security.
Khan Al-Ahamar existed long before Israel was established and shall stay long after its illegal occupation and apartheid regime are dismantled.
