A United Nations human rights expert said he thinks Israel has committed genocide in Gaza. He has prepared a report in this regard, which is scheduled to be presented on Tuesday.

According to the BBC, this expert, Francesca Albanese, is scheduled to present a report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

Meanwhile, Israel rejected the report before it was published. Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations criticized the report as an “outrageous distortion of the Genocide Convention and an obscene distortion of reality.”

The report on the massacre comes as international pressure mounts on Israel to end the war in Gaza and provide more protection for civilians.

Genocide is a specific legal term. According to Albanese’s report, some of its features are fulfilled. That is, there is reason to believe that the genocidal activity in Gaza has reached the level of determination of ‘genocide’.

According to the British press, expert Albanese said in his report entitled “Anatomy of a Genocide” that Israel acted with the intention of destroying the Palestinians as a whole group or in part. which is a key feature of the Genocide Convention.

Albanese, in particular, cited Israel’s violation of three articles of the UN Genocide Convention.

1. Killing group members

2. Causing serious harm to group members, physically and emotionally

3. Deliberate attack on the way of life of the group calculated to destroy it in whole or in part.

According to information from the Hamas-run Gaza Ministry of Health, Israel launched an attack on Gaza on October 7 last year. More than 32,000 Palestinians have been killed so far in the ongoing attacks. Most of them are women and children.
