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.” 2 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.” 4 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.” 4 hours ago

“This has been experimented [with] over the past three decades. Palestinians have been negotiating with Israel, and Israel doesn't want to get anywhere with these negotiations. At the same time … Israel has been taking more land, expelling Palestinians from their homes and controlling their lives more. What we can see today in the Gaza Strip, Israel has not even thought that apartheid is enough, now they are committing genocide. So what should we wait for? Should we wait until there are no more Palestinians to talk to?”

“We shall not bow down to international dictates in regards to a future deal with the Palestinians. Such a compromise should be through direct negotiations with no preconditions. How can we give recognition to such a state after the massacre of October 7. This would be a reward for terrorism.”

“This was a predictable development of the situation on the ground. The tension has been brewing in the West Bank, including Jerusalem, since October 7. More than 7,000 Palestinians have been detained, almost 400 Palestinians killed by Israeli soldiers and settlers. The situation was being described as a pressure cooker, and now we've seen just how that pressure would explode in a very deadly and tragic manner. The writing was on the wall, and anyone who didn't see it just didn't want to.”

“A peace deal between Israel and Hamas will only be reached through direct negotiations between the parties. Israel outright rejects international dictates regarding a permanent settlement with the Palestinians. Israel will continue to oppose the unilateral recognition of a Palestinian state. Such recognition in the wake of the October 7 massacre would give a huge reward to unprecedented terrorism and prevent any future peace settlement.”

“We will in no way agree to this plan, which says Palestinians deserve a prize for the terrible massacre they carried out against us: a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. A Palestinian state is an existential threat to the State of Israel as was proven on Oct. 7.”

“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.”

“There is limited space and great risk in putting Rafah under further military escalation due to the growing number of Palestinians there. An escalation would have dire consequences.”

“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.”

“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.”

“Israel's political leaders, military commanders and persons holding official positions have systematically and in explicit terms declared their genocidal intent. These statements are then repeated by soldiers on the ground in Gaza as they engage in the destruction of Palestinians and the physical infrastructure of Gaza. [Netanyahu's comments on October 28, 2023, urging ground troops preparing to enter Gaza to 'remember what Amalek has done to you'] This refers to the Biblical command by God to Saul for the retaliatory destruction of an entire group of people. The evidence of genocidal intent is not only chilling, it is also overwhelming and incontrovertible.”

“We've heard a lot of calls for revenge. And we've seen calls for a general strike … where Palestinians have said all schools and public institutions will be closed to mourn al-Arouri's death. People believe that Israel assassinated al-Arouri to show its people a victory which it cannot guarantee in the besieged Gaza Strip.”

“One challenge is a ceasefire versus a truce. Palestinians are talking about a full-fledged ceasefire. The Israelis are hearing a 'truce,' a pause. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would also have to pull back from its stated mission of eradicating Hamas. On the one hand [Netanyahu] is still negotiating with Hamas indirectly, but at the same time his main dream is to eradicate Hamas. He lives in two separate worlds and he needs to unify them.”

“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.”

“We do not believe that it makes sense for Israel or is right for Israel to occupy Gaza, reoccupy Gaza over the long term. … Ultimately, the control of Gaza, the administration of Gaza and the security of Gaza has to transition to the Palestinians.”

“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.”

“In the event that Israel cannot take Hamas out, the fissure between the two Palestinian political groups will deepen. Hamas would remain standing, a valiant hero for Palestinians for fighting Israel, and the PA [Palestinian Authority] would appear weak, shamed for cooperating with Israel over the years. That would kick off a vicious cycle of a seemingly weak PA inspiring more settler activity in the West Bank, which would erode the group's control of the territory more and more. This could be the beginning of the end of the PA.”

“It's unlikely to happen, given the messages coming from the Israeli side. I also think a ceasefire is not the same as putting out the fire to the original spark - the original point of conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. If they are just extending the truce for a few days, and resuming the carnage, it doesn't seem like an effective way to move forward. It's not moving forward at all.”
