MAPW statement on Israel — Palestine conflict in Gaza: December 2012

This statement by MAPW considers the health and humanitarian outcomes of Israel's blockade of Gaza; the need of all parties to comply with international humanitarian law; the costs of the November conflict in terms of deaths and injuries; and the humanitarian catastrophe that would be caused by any use of Israel's nuclear weapons. The statement sets out a position supporting the right of all to live free from armed conflict, and urges action including the lifting of the blockade, immediate humanitarian aid to Gaza, and a genuine peace process.
