UN Special Rapporteur for Palestine Faces Threats Over Report of “Genocide” in Gaza

Francesca Albanese, the UN special rapporteur for the Occupied Palestinian Territories, has acknowledged receiving threats for her report on the signs of “genocide” committed by Israel against the Palestinian population during the military offensive in Gaza. Despite these threats, Albanese stated that she remains committed to her work and believes that the evidence presented in her report is significant.

Albanese emphasized that attacks against her have been ongoing since the beginning of her mandate. She said that human rights work is about amplifying the voices of those who are not heard. While criticism may anger her, it only motivates her to continue her important work.

In a surprise move, Albanese has expressed disappointment at the lack of response to her report from many Western states. She believes that their silence speaks volumes about their stance on the issue. Her role as a special rapporteur is to ensure that member states comply with international law and she believes that her report may expose what she calls “humanitarian camouflage” regarding Israel’s actions in Gaza.

On Monday, Albanese presented a report providing evidence to support her claim that Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinian population. The criteria for this assertion include murder of group members, infliction of serious harm and deliberate actions causing physical destruction.

Albanese’s dedication to upholding human rights and international law in conflict zones like Gaza highlights how important it is for us all to continue working towards peace and justice for those affected by conflict.
