What are the war crimes laws in the Israel-Palestine conflict?

Published

on

In the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict, several international laws and conventions apply to address allegations of war crimes.

 
The conflict, marked by decades of tensions and violence, has raised significant legal questions concerning the conduct of both Israeli and Palestinian parties.

One key framework that applies is the Geneva Conventions, which outline the rules governing the treatment of civilians and combatants during armed conflicts.

These conventions prohibit actions such as targeting civilians deliberately, using disproportionate force, and causing unnecessary suffering. Violations of these principles can constitute war crimes.

Additionally, the International Criminal Court (ICC) has jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute individuals suspected of committing war crimes in the region, regardless of their nationality.

The ICC has initiated investigations into alleged crimes committed by both Israeli and Palestinian actors.

Furthermore, customary international law, including the principle of distinction between combatants and non-combatants, also plays a crucial role in determining what constitutes war crimes in the context of this conflict.

Overall, the application of war crimes laws in the Israel-Palestine conflict remains a complex and contentious issue, with ongoing debates regarding specific incidents and legal interpretations. #featured

TikTok implements stricter guidelines on weight-loss drug promotion

Published

on

TikTok is tightening its regulations on influencers who promote weight-loss drugs like Ozempic.

With over 170 million users in the US, the app aims to prevent the spread of potentially harmful content related to rapid weight loss.

Starting in May, TikTok will prohibit influencers from posting “before-and-after” photos and restrict minors from accessing weight-loss content deemed risky. The crackdown extends to any content promoting drastic weight loss methods, aiming to combat the promotion of unrealistic body standards.

However, some influencers, like Dave Knapp and Kim Carlos, criticise the move, arguing it discriminates against those with health conditions. Others fear losing their income as TikTok takes down their content, prompting concerns about the platform’s future amid potential US bans.

As TikTok enforces stricter guidelines, influencers may seek alternative platforms to share weight-loss content. Despite the popularity of drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy, the crackdown reflects growing concerns about the impact of such promotions on user health.
