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

Special Rapporteur Francesca Albanese Fights Against Silence, Exposes Genocide Allegations in Occupied Palestinian Territories.

Francesca Albanese, the UN special rapporteur for the Occupied Palestinian Territories, spoke out about the threats she received for her report on the signs of “genocide” committed by Israel against the Palestinian population during the military offensive in Gaza. Despite the danger, Albanese remained steadfast in her commitment to her work and believed that the evidence was significant.

She emphasized that attacks against her had been ongoing since the beginning of her mandate, reminding us that human rights work involves amplifying the voices of those who are silenced. While criticism may infuriate her, it only motivates her to continue with her essential work.

Albanese expressed surprise at the lack of response from many Western states to her report, which she believed highlighted their stance on the issue. She affirmed that as a special rapporteur, it was her duty to ensure member states complied with international law and believed that her report may expose what she called “humanitarian camouflage” regarding Israel’s actions.

In Monday’s report, Albanese presented evidence supporting claims that Israel was committing genocide against Palestinians in Gaza through criteria such as murdering group members, inflicting serious harm, and taking deliberate actions causing physical destruction. Her dedication to upholding human rights and international law in conflict zones like Occupied Palestinian Territories underscored how crucial this work is in maintaining peace and justice worldwide.
