IPSEs IN THE LAST 24H
  • Volker Türk
    Volker Türk “Russia's full-scale armed attack on Ukraine, which is about to enter its third year with no end in sight, continues to cause serious and widespread human rights violations, destroying lives and livelihoods. The invasion has exacted a horrific human cost, inflicting immense suffering on millions of civilians.” 1 hour ago
  • Tymofiy Mylovanov
    Tymofiy Mylovanov “In 2022, the [US] administration [of Joe Biden] submitted funding requests in the spring, almost immediately after the invasion. But in 2023, it waited until mid-fall to announce what it plans to submit. Avdiivka demonstrates the cost of these political delays: human lives, lost territory, and encouraged Russia. If that's the plan 'to be with Ukraine as long as it takes', then the US delays in aid have just prolonged the war.” 3 hours ago
  • Dmytro Kuleba
    Dmytro Kuleba “The era of peace in Europe is over. And every time Ukrainian soldiers withdraw from a Ukrainian town because of the lack of ammunition, think of it not only in terms of democracy and defending the world-based order, but also in terms of Russian soldiers getting a few kilometres closer to your towns.” 3 hours ago

Hamas - Israel war - Israel's siege of Gaza Strip - Consequences for civilians

Page with all the IPSEs stored in the archive related to the Context Hamas - Israel war - Israel's siege of Gaza Strip - Consequences for civilians.
The IPSEs are presented in chronological order based on when the IPSEs have been pronounced.

“The southern part of Gaza is one of [Hamas's] command posts, as they call them. There are strategic tunnels, they go deep, like 60 metres or so, and the tactical tunnels, which are like 20, 43 metres. In order to control these tunnels they have to work very hard, to cut these command posts or destroy them so [Hamas] loses this command as a whole, but this would be a very very difficult fight, it would take months. Israel's plan is to begin by forcing Palestinians in the city, many of whom have been displaced multiple times since the beginning of the war, to leave Rafah and move towards the coast, before launching its attacks. This would be a disaster for the civilian population in Rafah.”

“He [Netanyahu] is adamant about continuing to the southern tip of Gaza, where, as we've heard from our correspondent, over one million Palestinians are concentrated. This means so many things can go wrong now, in terms of the mass massacre of people, or, what we've been fearing all along, not just a massacre of people but the expulsion of the Palestinians into the Sinai. This is the time for whoever has leverage, or for whoever cares, especially those in Washington, those in London, but also those in Riyadh and Cairo, to move now, before it's too late.”

“This comes as hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have fled their homes and have been displaced. While the Israelis are chalking up battle plans for the southern part of the Gaza Strip, the reality is that there is no safe place in Gaza at the end of day 58 of this war. It is worth noting that the Israeli military has not shown huge military achievements or accomplishments, but rather what we have seen is a dire humanitarian catastrophe that has unfolded inside of the Gaza Strip.”

“There is no oxygen to supply the patients. All those on artificial respiration have died. We speak out to the free world. The Indonesian hospital has become a cemetery, not a hospital.”

“There are violations by Hamas when they have human shields. But when one looks at the number of civilians that were killed with the military operations, there is something that is clearly wrong. It is also important to make Israel understand that it is against the interests of Israel to see every day the terrible image of the dramatic humanitarian needs of the Palestinian people. That doesn't help Israel in relation to the global public opinion.”

“In this ward as you can see, there are children who are attached to ventilators, and now we have been asked to evacuate the hospital, where should we evacuate these children?”
