Gaza war ‘may be a curtain call’ for international order, Amnesty chief warns

Israel’s war on Gaza may be “a curtain call” for the post-World War Tw0 international rules-based order, Amnesty International secretary general Agnes Callamard said on Thursday.

“The gravity of the violations being committed, the fact that we are witnessing them every day… the flimsy justification by western democracies – all of these warn… of a possible total collapse of the rules-based order,” she said.

Speaking at the Balfour Project annual conference in London, Callamard denounced the US and UK’s continued backing of Israel’s offensive in Gaza as “making a mockery” of international law.
