The Center for Constitutional Rights has released a legal analysis of what it describes as an ongoing genocide against the Palestinian people by Israel, with the U.S. being complicit.
The release followed the U.S. veto of a United Nations Security Council resolution that condemned both Hamas’s attack on Israel and all violence against civilians, while also calling for humanitarian access to Gaza.
