Advocacy for Palestine

What is Happening?

The Palestinian-Israeli conflict has been ongoing for more than seven decades. Today, there are nearly 7 million Palestinian refugees around the world. Israeli authorities have committed repeated abuses and violations against Palestinians, and the Palestinian authority in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza are also responsible for significant human rights violations. In Gaza, an endless cycle of violence and the ensuing Israeli blockade have created substantial humanitarian needs. 

What Must Be Done? 

Refugees International is calling for greater protection and respect of Palestinians’ rights, the lifting of the blockade in Gaza, the cessation of violence against civilians in the West Bank, and increased humanitarian support.
