Pictured here is the team of lawyers from Centre for Human Rights Research & Advocacy (CENTHRA) working in support of MyAqsa Foundation’s initiative to file a lawsuit against Israel at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for violations against the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334.
Resolution 2334 states that Israel’s illegal settlements in Palestinian Territories, occupied since 1967, including that of East Jerusalem, constituted a “flagrant violation” of international law and had “no legal validity”.
The said resolution, under Chapter VII of the UN Charter, binds all UN members, including Israel, to refer to Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention — of which Israel is a party to — prohibiting the occupying power from mass transfer of its population into occupied territories and the eviction of any person from the territories concerned.
The action against Israel at the ICC had commenced on 17 October 2018, and other initiatives would be continued to ensure justice could be upheld for the Palestinians.
The legal team is currently studying documentary evidence of war crimes committed when Israel sanctioned moves to seize land, demolish houses, destroy farms and villages and illegally capture Palestinians in the West Bank, Palestine, an area which was included in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations Charter at the 4th Geneva Convention and the UN Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 2334.
