Sarah Leah Whitson: U.S. Ceasefire Push in Gaza Is Welcome, But "40,000 Dead Palestinians Too Late" [View all]

The damning documents come as Israel and Hamas are being urged to accept the three-phase ceasefire and hostage deal outlined by President Biden and endorsed by the U.N. Security Council. "Israel has no interest in international law, and the United States has no interest in demanding that Israel actually comply with international law besides rhetorical flourishes," says Sarah Leah Whitson, executive director of DAWN. "It will come to haunt and hurt America for decades to come."
