EU and Israel - the Case of Complicity

EU research funds have been a very important source of funding for Israeli academics, corporations, and state institutions, among them a number of military companies and those involved in illegal Israeli settlements. Although Israel is not an EU country, since 1995 Israeli applicants have been able to access EU research funds on the same basis as EU member states through the EU- Israel Association Agreement.

Operational Response for Gaza 2019: ongoing health response & 96-hour Contingency Planning

According to the latest information from the Health Cluster Situation Report issued on the 31st January, 261 people have been killed; and almost 28,000 injured by Israeli security forcesi.

Reproductive Toxicology

Prevalence of preterm, low birth weight and birth defects increased significantly since 2011 in Gaza, Palestine. No change in known co-factors of reproductive health justified this rise. Two military attacks in 2012 and 2014 introduced novel risk factors for outcomes at birth: contamination by teratogenic and carcinogenic heavy metals weapon- remnants, ongoing impoverishment, and impaired rehabilitation of waste management. It was previously shown that mothers exposed to military attacks had higher metal load than those unexposed and mother’s heavy metals trans- pass placenta.

Fuel and Gazan hospitals: Israeli siege and the politics of permanent emergency

Last August we published a rapid response at bmj.com to publicise the cumulatively devastating effects upon Gaza’s health system of 12 years of Israeli blockade and their strategy of de-development and impoverishment of Gazan society. Israeli restrictions have produced chronic shortages of almost all essential medicines and hospital equipment, of fuel to run hospital generators, the cancellation of all elective surgery (affecting more than 6000 people), hospital closures, and many doctors and staff on reduced or no pay.

 

Will Europe use Israeli drones against refugees?

Europe’s coastal guards are examining whether Israel’s warplanes would be helpful tools in repressing refugees.

In September, the EU’s border management agency Frontex announced
the start of trial flights for drones in Italy, Greece and Portugal.
There was a major omission in the Frontex statement: the type of drones
being tested have been used previously to attack Gaza.
