International Human Rights Commission regional offices are receiving calls & emails on IHRC role in current ISRAEL & PALESTINE conflict. Following is our Policy Statement on ISRAEL & PALESTINE conflict.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict dates back to the end of the nineteenth century. In 1947, the United Nations adopted Resolution 181, known as the Partition Plan, which sought to divide the British Mandate of Palestine into Arab and Jewish states. On May 14, 1948, the State of Israel was created, sparking the first Arab-Israeli War. The war ended in 1949 with Israel’s victory, but 750,000 Palestinians were displaced and the territory was divided into 3 parts: the State of Israel, the West Bank (of the Jordan River), and the Gaza Strip.
In 2013, the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA attempted to revive the peace process between the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank. However, peace talks were disrupted when Fatah—the Palestinian Authority’s ruling party—formed a unity government with its rival faction Hamas in 2014.
In the summer of 2014, clashes in the Palestinian territories precipitated a military confrontation between the Israeli military and Hamas in which Hamas fired nearly three thousand rockets at Israel, and Israel retaliated with a major offensive in Gaza.
IHRC is dedicated to protecting the human rights of people around the world and promoting the culture of Peace among the nations. The main goals of the International Human Rights Commission are to serve humanity regardless of its material status, color and religion.
IHRC firmly believes in #DIPLOMATIC communication & efforts for the resolution of conflicts between two countries. DIPLOMACY & DIMPLOMATIC DIALOGUES are the only way of resolving conflicts & disputes like ISRAEL & PALESTINE.
Our regional Diplomatic Staff including our Ambassadors are in contact with the concerned & relevant authorities of both countries & are trying to normalize the situation with dialogues. IHRC is not a law enforcement agency or a PEACE KEEPING FORCE. We believe in working directly with the relevant authorities rather than publishing our work on SOCIAL & MEDIA linked with such a sensitive & fragile issues like ISRAEL & PALESTINE.
IHRC will continue its efforts through DIPLOMACY & DIPLOMATIC dialogue between two countries to protect humanity & every single human being affected due to the current conflict.
