Israel Intensifies Bombing in Rafah, Defying Hague Court Orders and International Appeals


KABUL(BNA): The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor has announced that Israel has responded to the Hague Court orders and international community’s requests to halt its attacks in Gaza by intensifying its bombing, killing, and destruction in the city of Rafah.

In a statement, the organization declared that the mass killing of Palestinian refugees in Rafah blatantly ignores the Hague Court’s order to cease attacks on Rafah and to open the Rafah crossing to facilitate humanitarian aid. Israel’s continued actions are a direct violation of the court’s decisions.

The organization highlighted that, following the international court’s order to cease attacks on Rafah, Israel conducted over 60 airstrikes on the city within 48 hours.

The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor further noted that civilians in Rafah are bearing the brunt of Israel’s military assaults. These ongoing attacks have obstructed access to the food distribution center operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) and the World Food Program warehouse in the Gaza Strip.

Additionally, the organization reported that the Rafah crossing remains closed to travelers, particularly patients and the wounded, due to Israeli forces.
It emphasized that discussions about allowing aid through the Kerem Shalom crossing are inadequate and fail to meet the growing needs of Palestinians in Gaza.

Last Friday, the Hague Court issued a ruling, with 13 votes in favor and two against, demanding the immediate cessation of Israeli military attacks in Rafah and calling for the reopening of the Rafah crossing to allow humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip.

Despite this, recent reports indicate that the Israeli military has continued its attacks on Rafah, resulting in the deaths of dozens of Palestinians.
