The Israel and Gaza Crisis

We may not know when a crisis will occur, but when it does, Amnesty International’s crisis team is ready to collect evidence of human rights abuses that will help end the abuse and bring perpetrators to justice. Whether it’s the current conflict between Israel and Palestinian armed groups in Gaza, or the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Syria, we’re ready to help people at risk of human rights abuses and bring about long-lasting change.

The recent escalation in hostilities between Israel and Palestinian armed groups in Gaza has led to a humanitarian catastrophe, with a mounting civilian death toll. As the world watches in horror, Amnesty International has been hard at work. Our teams have been researching, monitoring, and documenting human rights abuses.

Our experts are carrying out painstaking verification of the findings in our Crisis Evidence Lab to expose crimes under international law. We’re speaking to survivors and eyewitnesses, analysing satellite imagery, and verifying photos and videos of the attacks.

What we’re doing

We want a world where human rights are no longer under fire. Governments and people in power everywhere must respect everyone’s human rights and allow civilians to live safely, without fear. When human rights are attacked, Amnesty will call on the human rights abusers to be held accountable and brought to justice.

In the unfolding conflict in Israel and Gaza, Amnesty is urgently calling for an immediate ceasefire by all parties to prevent further loss of civilian lives and to ensure access to life-saving aid for people in Gaza amidst an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe.
