    Israel has employed the use of white phosphorus in densely populated urban areas of Gaza and Lebanon in violation of international law as documented by the United Nations;
    Israel enforces Apartheid against all Palestinians residing within and along its lines as document by the United Nations;
    Israel has targeted and killed journalists, medics, hospitals, schools, children, and press in their indiscriminate bombing campaigns on Gaza and violence in the West Bank including the brutal executions of Shireen Abu Akleh and Razzan Al-Najjar and the butchery of over 3,000 children in October 2023;
    Israel has expanded its illegal settlements across the West Bank in violation of international law;
