New: Israel - Palestine Timeline

The following timeline was composed in order to help illustrate a point made by UN Secretary-General António Guterres -- that the October 7 attack by Hamas was “not occurring in a vacuum.”

It is important to highlight the warnings and condemnations concerning Israel’s increasing oppression of the Palestinian population in the months and years prior to October 7, 2023.

In showcasing the statements, reports, and investigations issued by the Lemkin Institute, Genocide Watch, and other international organizations in previous years, we hope to add much needed context to the current dialogue around the crisis taking place and demonstrate missed opportunities to prevent the worst, which is now unfolding in front of our eyes.
