International Law and the War in Gaza

Former U.N. Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in the Palestinian Territories Occupied by Israel since 1967, Michael Lynk discusses international law as it applies to the war in Gaza between Israel and Hamas. The Oct. 7 attack on Israeli civilians by Hamas as well as Hamas’ ongoing missile strikes on Israel violate international law. So too does Israel’s indiscriminate shelling of Palestinian civilians in Gaza and its tightening siege. Lynk addresses the dire humanitarian crisis in Gaza and says the Biden administration’s support for Israel’s actions is complicity in war crimes.
