Crimes Against Humanity

The list, outlined. Evidence, presented.

Use of Chemical Weapons on Civilians

White phosphorous is a chemical substance that ignites instantly upon contact with oxygen. Once ignited, it is extremely difficult to extinguish and sticks to surfaces like skin and clothing, and can even burn through bones.

  • Here is the World Health Organization's (WHO) information on white phosphorus and key international agreements.
  • Human RIghts Watch reviewed footage and conducted interviews with people in Gaza to confirm the evidence.

Denial of Water & Humanitarian Needs

Israel shut off Gaza's access to water and other humanitarian needs. Water is a basic human right, and denying this right violates international humanitarian law and the Geneva convention, constituting a war crime.

Targeting of Civilian, Hospital, and Other Aid Workers

Targeting of civilians, schools, infrastructure, aid workers, hospitals, ambulances, and other relief efforts can all be deemed as forms of war crimes and/or crimes against humanity.

  • Here is a press statement from UN Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (UN OHCHR) regarding such attacks.
  • Doctors Without Borders (MSF) continues to share statements detailing the difficulty of their aid workers, including attacks on medical facilities, aid workers, ambulances, and lack of humanitarian supplies.
