Euro-Med monitor Demands Pressure on Zionist entity to Reveal Fate of Detainees in Gaza

Geneva: The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor called on the international community to put pressure on the Zionist entity to provide answers for the fate of the Palestinian detainees in the Gaza Strip, release them and investigate the serious violations they have endured.

In a statement posted on its website today, the Monitor said it had received information about the arrest by the occupation forces of hundreds of Palestinians, including women, during the past few days in the Sheikh Rizwan neighborhood in Gaza City.

It equally reported the detention of hundreds others in Jabaliya and its camp in Northern Gaza and some Eastern neighborhoods of the city. The all have been subjugated to inhuman treatment according to the information obtained by the observatory. The overall analysis of dozens of testimonies and videos revealed that during raids on homes and asylum centers, the Zionist forces tend to blow up the doors and throw bombs, then soldiers storm them, shoot, execute and kill a number of those inside, for no reason or just because any of them speaks, and take the rest out of the homes.

The Euro-Med Monitor explained that the occupation army continues to arrest dozens of women including elderly women and mothers with their infants, all of whom underwent harsh detention conditions and inappropriate treatment. It stressed that the random arrests executed by the occupation army did not spare doctors, nurses, journalists, teachers, engineers, human rights activists, humanitarian organizations employees and elderly people. It indicated that based on the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance of 2006, which entered into force in 2010, States are required to consider enforced disappearance as a crime punishable by law with appropriate penalties, taking into account its gravity.

The Monitor urged the International Committee of the Red Cross and the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention to pressure the Zionist occupation authorities to reveal the fate of detainees in the Gaza Strip and investigate the grave violations they were subjected to.

In a statement earlier today, the Euro-Med Monitor announced that it had documented in a preliminary file submitted to the UN Special Rapporteurs and the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, dozens of cases of field executions carried out by the Zionist occupation in the Gaza Strip, calling for immediate investigation to hold the perpetrators accountable and to provide justice to the victims.

It also added it had submitted the initial file to Morris Tidball-Binz, the UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial or arbitrary executions, Francesca Albanese, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory since 1967, Navanethem Pillay, the Chair of the Commission of Inquiry on the Occupied Palestinian Territory, and Karim Khan, the Prosecutor of the Criminal Court.
