IP- The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, Francesca Albanese, has called for the imposition of sanctions against the Zionist regime.

Iran Press/America: Albanese underlined that the Israeli regime even extended its military operation in Rafah city, located in the southern Gaza Strip, following the Friday ruling of the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

The rapporteur stated that the Israeli regime will not stop its "madness and absurdity" unless the international community takes action. She called for sanctions to be imposed on the regime, arms exports to it to be banned, and diplomatic relations with Tel Aviv to be suspended until the attack on Rafah is halted.

Director of the Middle East and North Africa department at Amnesty International, Heba Morayef, emphasized in a statement that any military action that could amount to genocide must be stopped. She warned that the Israeli officials must completely halt the military operations in Rafah, as the ground incursion and forced displacement of Gaza residents pose "even greater irreversible menaces" for the Palestinians whose rights are guaranteed under the Genocide Convention.

Lebanese Judge Nawaf Salam, President of the International Court of Justice, said that in accordance with the Genocide Convention, any operation in Rafah could lead to partial or total destruction in this city. He called for the Israeli regime to immediately stop the military invasion of Rafah.
