GENEVA — The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor strongly condemned Israel's recent intensification of attacks in the Gaza Strip, branding them as mass murders targeting entire residential areas. The toll has surpassed a thousand victims, including fatalities, injuries, and missing individuals.اضافة اعلان

According to Euro-Med Monitor, these attacks mark the bloodiest day since Israel initiated its genocidal war on October 7. Concerns are mounting over a potentially more ruthless approach, prioritizing political and field objectives over civilian lives and property.

The Observatory documented Israel's relentless air assaults on Shuja'iya, Jabalia, and Beit Lahia, hitting buildings and inhabited areas without warning, and trapping residents under rubble. Rescue workers reported hundreds of casualties from about 50 residential buildings in the densely populated Shujaiya neighborhood.

Simultaneously, Israeli warplanes destroyed a multi-story residential building in Jabalia housing displaced persons, resulting in numerous casualties, including Dr. Sufyan Tayeh, President of the Islamic University in Gaza, and his family.

Within 48 hours
Despite the recent humanitarian truce collapse, Israel resumed air, artillery, and ground attacks within 48 hours, engaging in disproportionate raids.

73 journalists killed since Oct. 7
The Observatory for Human Rights reported the death of three Palestinian journalists, bringing the total to 73 since the conflict's onset.

Israel's military, claiming 400 attacks since resuming raids, announced plans for forced displacement in southern Gaza. Euro-Med urged ICC Prosecutor Karim Khan, currently in Ramallah, to hold Israel accountable for war crimes and violations of the International Convention to Prevent and Punish the Crime of Genocide.

Euro-Med emphasized Israel's consistent violation of international law and the Convention on Genocide, pointing to acts of mass targeting against Gaza residents based on their Palestinian identity. The organization called on the international community to prevent and punish such crimes, as outlined in the Convention.
