Last Friday, on May 15th 2020, was the anniversary of the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in 1948. 72 years later the conflict between Israel and Palestine unfortunately has still not been resolved, and the prospect of a just peace seems to have recently receded into even greater distance.
Horyzon is committed to a just peace in the Middle East and carries out sensitisation work for a just peace in all projects, which are implemented in the occupied Palestinian territory. In doing so, Horyzon resolutely opposes violations of human rights and international humanitarian law. Horyzon categorically rejects the peace solution proposed by US President Trump, which provides for the annexation of large parts of the West Bank, as it is a violation of international humanitarian law and violates UN Security Council Resolution 242. Instead, Horyzon demands a fair, sustainable and negotiated two-state solution.
