2:03 pm
which i think before the march night before. and the 1st article of this agreement said event enjoy a whole observe the human rights of freedom of religion, which in this case has been brutally violated. and this is one thing which the underlying action of what are justified and unprovoked. and the algae here is iran. con has more on what was said at the news conference at st. joseph hospital in ocoee by the eastern this is the court yard where i'm standing, where the attack against the coffin and the pallbearers of sharina barclay took place after that happened the israeli forces. them went inside the hospital through that entrance. there though, the hospital authorities say was absolutely no reason for them to have gone inside the hospital. absolutely no reason whatsoever. they are shocked and disgraced about
2:04 pm
this. now the hospital is a wearing of, along with church authorities. its legal options are they are going to take legal action against these ready authorities for what happened on friday. the israeli police are they are investigating the incident but we've been speaking to tony of walkway the brother of sri and he says that he holds out no hope that that will be a independent investigation. indeed, are these where the police initially said that they were acting on the instructions of the family. again, something tony of lockley says never happened. are these really narrative, these are the police narrative has been completely ripped apart by the press conference here just over an hour ago, from the clergy, from the hospitals, a general director. they say that this was a completely disgraceful a disproportionate and they condemned it in the most strongest terms. well now speak to swanson's i hair, who is a human rights lawyer and a board member at best fell m a non profit group. we focus on documenting human rights violations in these really occupied palestinian territory as she's joining
2:05 pm
us from high for thank you very much for being with us. so you've seen the video released by hospital officials today showing is really 4th is actually going inside the st. joseph hospital, what is your reaction and are there any violations being committed here? yes, actually we are talking about not only a burst, we're talking about an invasion of the israeli police in a hospital, in a church, in the occupied palestinian territories where international law occupied and where international community sees it as an occupying a territory. this is one thing now a by, in addition to the fact as we also and heard earlier that we are talking about a about, about crime basically that has been committed by the israeli forces in contrast to international law. but not only in contrast to international law,
2:06 pm
also in contrast to the israel, the israel enables police forces to use force or excessive force. only one, there is immediate danger or an immediate crime that has been conducted. and of course, this is, and this hasn't been the case during the invasion to the church until the hospital on friday. and therefore this also should be investigated. of course, as we know, as was published, we know that the israeli, a police will investigate the incident. of course, this is meant of opening an investigation came only after international condemnation. there is totally no hope in a result of the investigation because we all know as human rights lawyers and human rights organizations. that in a most of the cases, if not all israeli geisha are not impartial,
2:07 pm
are not independent or not professional. and they always try to bring the israeli side while the purpose is to provide a impunity to the army and black off. i come to the south and you say not just a violation of international law, but also a violation of these rainy law. when they stormed the hospital premises and went inside the hospital, now the compound, st. joseph hospital is also called the french hospital and there's been some confusion as to whether it falls under the french mission in jerusalem. does it have diplomatic immunity? yes, actually i have been not trying to legally verify because this is now the most relevant to a question i have been trying to call before the interview with to check with a director of the hospital. but unfortunately, i wasn't able to get an affirmative answer about that. but the fact that we are
2:08 pm
talking about a hospital that is being operated by san jose, a by french operation and occupied territory, does impose international obligation on the state of israel. in any case, even if we're talking only about a regular hospital in rel, this conduct this invasion is also illegal because entering in best way to a hospital violating and packing of patients attacking innocence that are it, that we're a, a presence in the hospital. we all saw the shock of people, doctors during the filming of and the documentation of this, if you all of it is also a legal, based on international law. if it doesn't matter, it's so much in unity reminders of what these re lease has said is the reason for
2:09 pm
attacking mourners. we also the pictures the world saw the pictures. they said at 1st that they were acting on orders of serene family. but her brother has contradicted that so how are they justifying their actions? yes, well the is there any media has exposed that the lease was instructed to basically prohibit the holding off by the student young flags. and this is what we know about the motive of their invasion, but let us not forget the israeli law currently does not prohibit the holding of the palestinian flag. there is no crime based on his radio and also based on case load that arrived to israeli court when there were attempts to indict people holding philistine flags during the once 3 sions. and there was just
2:10 pm
a recent or decision in disregard about the woman that was holding up a simian flag few months ago of the demonstrations and showing shar, which the court said that, based on the attorney general of the government instruction few years ago, this is no crime, and it is good basically to that. so whether it doesn't matter how we look at that, we know that this is a political motive. there is no legal, based in israel and international law that does not forget that the i c. j, the international court of justice together with the international criminal court and behavior. both in jerusalem as an occupied territory. indeed imposed on, well, not only international human rights law which prohibits excessive force by police, but also international humanitarian law, as it is as is, as it is an occupied territory. indeed. so i seen one last question briefly if you
2:11 pm
can, hospital officials and church leaders. i've said they're considering legal action, what other options see thank no there are a few possibilities based on israeli a law and there is a possibility to demand the opening of investigation. there is a possibility to submit a towards a, towards a towards claim and civil and civil court. but frankly, and as we all in all of the results of these a lawsuits or investigation are already known from now. i personally have brought the of the murder and hire, it's in the bro explaining as well the supreme court decisions on the closure or basically the justification of the closure of all investigations including investigations that were open against the killing of the a bacteria. it children in 2014,
2:12 pm
which was published only 3 weeks ago on the supreme court, justified basically the closure of investigation. so therefore, i think, in my opinion, on others opinion, i think that the only remedy in this case is basically to include the investigation and legal demand. because the mad regarding a assassination of shooting, as well as the invasion of the hospital under one international transparent, unprofessional committee that is worked on cannot and should not be part of in order to get some mutual results. thank you so very much for talking to us about this south san zion human rights lawyer with the human rights organization that selim joining us there from hyphen. we appreciate your time. thank you very much. thank you very much. let's turned to the war in ukraine now and soldiers defending ukraine, 2nd largest city of khaki, say they've reached the border with russia. the defense ministry shadow video celebrations at the, at
