UN: “A large-scale operation in Gaza would violate human rights”

“A large-scale attack cannot be launched in Rafah because it contravenes international humanitarian law,” stated UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk. “The recent evacuation orders affect nearly a million people in Rafah,” he said. Where should they go? “There is no safe place in Gaza.” “These exhausted and hungry people, many of whom have been displaced several times, do not have good options,” Türk adds, estimating that a large-scale attack would have a “catastrophic impact” with “the possibility of new terrible crimes.” “I do not see how the recent evacuation orders, let alone an all-out attack, in an area where civilians are so densely present, can comply with the binding requirements of international humanitarian law and with the two sets of binding interim measures ordered by the International Court of Justice,” the UN official adds. Turk stressed that the population is “already suffering from deep trauma” and that the cities that should receive those displaced from Rafah have already “turned into rubble.” He added that such an attack “cannot happen,” and called on all countries that may have influence to do everything in their power to ensure that this does not happen, and appealed to Israel and Palestinian armed groups to reach a ceasefire and immediately release all hostages. “A large-scale attack cannot be launched in Rafah because it contravenes international humanitarian law,” stated UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk. “The recent evacuation orders affect nearly a million people in Rafah,” he said.
