The International Criminal Court, established by the United Nations Human Rights Council in 2018, has removed the last obstacles to an international investigation into war crimes committed in Occupied Palestine.

The Court has ruled that its jurisdiction extends to the territories occupied by Israel since 1967, namely Gaza and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem – a decision wecomed by the Workers Party.

The United Nations has repeatedly documented violations of human rights in the Occupied territories which remain under effective siege, in violation of international and humanitarian law. Palestinian civilians, including children, are deliberately targeted for attack

Currently, Israel is excluding the five million Palestinians living in Gaza and the West Bank from its coronavirus vaccincation programe, while vaccinating its own citizens living in the illegal settlements in those areas.
