Description : Tensions are heightening in the Palestinian city of Hebron between Palestinian residents
and Israeli settlers moving into the old city. For many Palestinians, the constant military
patrols, travel restrictions, curfews and harassment are making life increasingly difficult. The ICRC assists the Palestinian community by supplying food and other essential items.
But the organisation also acts as neutral and impartial intermediary between the residents
and the Israeli authorities, reminding them of their obligations and responsibilities under International Humanitrarian law. ICRC delegate Christophe Von Toggenbourg explains,
“the ICRC plays the role of an advocate between the two and reminds the authorities
constantly to follow the obligations under the Fourth Geneva Conventions to protect the
Palestinian population".
