247 – Francesca Albanese, the United Nations (UN) special rapporteur for Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, in a recent interview with the newspaper O Globo, accused Israel of promoting “ethnic cleansing” in the Gaza Strip. According to Albanese, the plan of the Israeli government, led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, would be to move Palestinians to Egypt. This report comes amid a long-running conflict with Hamas, which has resulted in more than 17,000 deaths and displaced 80% of Gaza’s population, according to report from the Sputnik agency.
In the interview, Albanese described the actions of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as exacerbated, highlighting that not even hospitals were spared from the bombings. She also criticized the UN’s response to the conflict, calling it an “epic failure”. Regarding Israel’s justification for bombing densely populated areas due to the presence of Hamas, Albanese argued that the Israeli government itself has military installations close to civilian areas.

Albanese emphasized the continuity of forced displacements of the Palestinian population since the creation of the State of Israel in 1947. She questioned why these people could not return to the north, to their homes, instead of being forced to move to the Rafah border. The rapporteur also mentioned the UN’s inability to pressure Israel to moderate its use of self-defense, highlighting that although Israel has the right to protect itself, it should not conduct a war against the civilian population of Gaza.
The UN, when celebrating 76 years of the resolution that approved the creation of a Palestinian State, reiterated the need for the international community to act to achieve such a State. Tatiana Valovaya, director-general of the United Nations office in Geneva, emphasized the urgency of moving towards a two-state solution. Tension in the region has worsened since October 7, when Hamas launched a significant attack against Israel, intensifying the conflict in the Gaza Strip. The UN plan also foresees international control over Jerusalem and the formation of a Palestinian State including the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Israel, for its part, argues for the demilitarization of the region to guarantee its security.
