The Israeli Occupation Forces launched a wide and extensive brutal aggression in Jenin refugee camp in the early hours of Monday the Fourth of July. According to a Press Statement signed by The Ambassador of the State of Palestine to Nigeria, Abdallah Abu Shawesh “The military attacks started by air strikes on many homes and other civilian properties on the densely populated Palestine refugee camp by a fully armed ground forces who stormed the refugee camp”.

This aggression led to the loss of ten Palestinian souls, other tens wounded and heavy damage to properties and infrastructure.

The international community should uphold and stand firm for the implementation of international law, UN resolutions, Human Right Declaration, the Geneva Convention and many other agreed international legal instruments that were created to maintain the peace and security all over the world, and to secure and save the lives of defenseless people, including the Palestinian people. 

The international community should also take clear and firm stance to oppose and enforce Israel, the occupying Power, to stop its current aggression and attacks on civilians in Jenin refugee camp and to fully respect its obligations under international law as the occupying Power. 

“It is evident that Israel’s sole and predominant choice is war, trampling international law and trifling all UN resolutions, and is in pursuant of a military solution, and constantly attempting to get rid of the Palestinian people from their ancient homeland by forcing them to surrender to its tyrannical messianic apartheid regime” the statement read.

According to the Ambassador “the latest military aggression came is a result of the incitement campaign led by the current racist and far right Israeli government. The clear double standards used by the international community gives the green light for Israel, the occupying Power, to commit more crimes and more killing of the Palestinian people”. 

We call for a real and effective legal and diplomatic measures against Israel, the occupying Power, similar to what had been taken in other parts of the world. It’s long overdue for the international community to act immediately, and to take the tangible measures to put an end to the shameful silence and constant inaction.

“Silence is complicity” the statement concluded.
