A Palestinian non-governmental organization has leveled accusations against the Israeli army, alleging the execution of 30 Palestinians in Gaza.
According to a statement by the Palestinian Prisoner Society on Wednesday, the bodies, bound and blindfolded, were discovered within a school in Beit Lahia in northern Gaza.
The organization claimed that these individuals had been detained by Israeli forces prior to their demise, asserting that it was evident the occupation forces had carried out a field execution.
The NGO further highlighted the lack of information from Israeli authorities regarding the fate of Palestinians held by their forces in Gaza.
In a separate development, Spain’s left-wing coalition government announced its intention to voluntarily contribute to the Prosecutor’s Office of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for the investigation of human rights violations in Gaza during Israeli attacks.
During a meeting on January 30, the Council of Ministers decided that Spain would make a voluntary contribution to the ICJ Prosecutor’s Office to hold those responsible for mass human rights violations in Gaza accountable before the court. As part of this significant political contribution, the ICJ Prosecutor’s Office Trust Fund is set to receive $541,790 (500,000 euros) in 2024.
Meanwhile, lawyers and human rights organizations pursuing a case against Israel at the International Criminal Court (ICC) expressed confidence in their application leading to concrete action.
Over 600 lawyers and rights groups from around the world presented their case to ICC Prosecutor Karim Khan, focusing on evidence of genocidal acts committed by Israel in its ongoing conflict with Gaza.
Abdelmajid Mrari, an international law expert and senior member of the Brussels-based Alliance for Freedom and Dignity International (AFDI), emphasized that the submission to the ICC is a legally robust and well-prepared case.
Text documents, photos, and videos presented as evidence collectively indicate the commission of genocide in Gaza.
