Does Israel have a right to defend itself?

In 2021, Israel attempted to invoke it’s so-called “right and duty to defend its people and sovereignty” in a letter passed around the UN Security Council by the Permanent Representative of Israel to the United Nations.

The UN's response letter was firm and slammed Israel’s assertion that it has a right to “self defense” :

"Israel’s invocation of the principle of self defense as an occupying Power is illegitimate and must be countered with a clear response rooted in international law, the same international law that it systematically breaches with contempt yet has the audacity to invoke when it deems it beneficial to itself."

"The occupying Power has no sovereignty rights whatsoever in the occupied territory, to which international law, including humanitarian law fully applies."

Palestinian Resistance factions entered their own occupied territory on October 7th to take Israeli prisoners back to Gaza to force Israel into a prison exchange. This was a legal and lawful course of action, based on legitimate self-defense.

Israel is keeping 10,000 Palestinians as political prisoners in their detention centres where they’re brutally tortured and raped by the sadistic Israeli’s.
