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.” 3 hours 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.” 5 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.” 5 hours ago

“The Israeli offensive in Rafah could have very tragic consequences for the people in the area. You can imagine that any extensive military action there will have a devastating effect on the humanitarian situation. People are already suffering for lack of shelter, food, medicine, sanitation. The current scale of the conflict … is [already] leading to a daily loss of life for men, women, and children. And I think the international community is conscious, if not tainted … and strained by what is happening to civilians in Gaza.”

“We cannot allow this humanitarian disaster to continue. An international peace conference [must be held] as soon as possible to revive the two-state solution.”

“I've had extensive conversations with the prime minister of Israel over the last several days, one hour each. And I made the case, that I feel very strongly about, that there has to be a temporary ceasefire to get the hostages out. In the meantime, I anticipate, I'm hoping, that the Israelis will not make any massive land invasion [of Rafah] in the meantime. So, my expectation, that's not gonna happen.”

“I think it's crystal clear the situation cannot go on like it is. Families are waiting for their fathers, for their mothers … who have been captured by the terrorist organisation Hamas. On the other hand, we also need a humanitarian pause for the hundreds of thousands of people suffering in Gaza. There are also children who have lost their parents. Imagine our own children living without any parents, any water, any food. The easiest way to achieve the pause would be for Hamas to lay down its weapons.”

“What I expected to hear from Biden [is something] we will never hear. His comments about the imminent Israeli attack on Rafah should have been accompanied by the United States supporting a ceasefire. Rafah is the only area that is not destroyed completely in Gaza. Israel never gave up on its plan to ethnically cleanse the Palestinian population into Egypt. That's what the US president should have opposed. But he doesn't. The US is a participant in this attack.”

“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.”

“My first reaction was profound distress. Injecting saltwater will definitely contaminate the aquifer and this will have long-term consequences. It would ruin the conditions of life in Gaza. If we don't react to this kind of behaviour, what's to stop any other country from doing this to another group of people in the future? What we see happening in Gaza is beyond the pale. With the definition of the Genocide Convention in mind, I think salinating the aquifer, which is the main source of water, will bring about its partial destruction. Part of it could collapse and become unusable.”

“I want to emphasise our deep concern about the escalation of hostilities in Khan Younis, which has resulted in an increase in the number of internally displaced people seeking refuge in Rafah in recent days. Thousands of Palestinians have continued to flee to the south, which is already hosting over half the population of some 2.3 million people. … Rafah is a pressure cooker of despair, and we fear for what comes next.”

“For many, it's increased the level of panic. They don't have anywhere else to go to. This is the last refuge for Palestinians in Gaza. Beyond, it is only the Egyptian border. Gallant says the 'victory won't be complete unless the military expands into Rafah' - a city declared a 'safe zone'. For Palestinians, this means another genocide.”

“We agree that regional peace includes peace for Israel, but that could only happen through peace for the Palestinians through a Palestinian state... There is a pathway towards a much better future for the region, for the Palestinians, and for Israel, that is peace, and we are fully committed to that... a ceasefire on all sides should be a starting point for permanent sustainable peace, which can only happen through justice to the Palestinian people.”

“They [Arab allies - Jordan, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia] wanted integration with Israel - also a long-term Israeli aim - but only if that included a practical pathway to a Palestinian state. I think there are actually real opportunities. But we have to ... ensure that October 7 can never happen again and work to build a much different and much better future.”

“The Israelis would have been expecting a response. They would have been on high alert. Amid the continuing cross-border fighting, Hezbollah has a very political calculation to make in Lebanon. It doesn't want Lebanon to suffer as a result of an outright war. But it is talking tough. It says if Israel wants to escalate, then it will respond in kind.”

“One really has to look deep to see if there is any meaningful explanation for why the Biden administration wants to bypass Congress in order to expedite weapons to a country that is involved in war crimes. The move is morally scandalous given that the war has caused record damage and killed tens of thousands of Palestinian civilians. But it is also politically suspect in the sense that why would you want to bypass Congress twice in the same month? What is the urgency to bypass your own guidelines?”

“We've been hearing from all the top Biden administration officials for weeks that it is time for Israel to move to a lower-intensity conflict. In essence, stop the mass bombing. Stop the mass deaths of civilians. So, in that context - knowing that is what they say they want - they are now selling to Israel the exaction munitions they need to continue a high-intensity campaign.”

“Our vision is very clear: We want to stop the aggression. What is going on in the ground is a big catastrophe. Brief pauses in the conflict would not be in the interest of Hamas or Palestinians. Israel will take the card of the hostages and after that they will start a new round of mass killing and massacres against our people. We will not play this game.”
