It’s been more than 7 months since Israel’s most recent military assault on Gaza began, following the Hamas-led attack in Israel on October 7, in which 1139 people were killed and over 200 taken hostage. Since then, more than 35,000 Palestinians have been killed, including nearly 15,000 children. At least 19,000 children have been orphaned, and the entire population is experiencing or is at risk of famine. Israeli airstrikes have destroyed housing, hospitals, schools, universities, water and sanitation infrastructure, electrical plants, and businesses, reducing large parts of Gaza to rubble. All 2.3 million Gazans have been displaced, lost family members, friends, and livelihoods, enduring what the International Court of Justice is investigating as a plausible case of genocide.

For Gazans with disabilities, the circumstances could not be worse: the complete collapse of basic vital services, displacement, starvation, disease, and indiscriminate bombing have created a nightmare scenario in which their very survival is jeopardized. Israel’s restrictions on humanitarian aid exacerbate the challenges they face, limiting access to food, medicine, assistive devices and other vital supplies. While no official numbers are available, many children and adults with disabilities have been killed, including long-time disability rights defenders Bader Mosleh and Hashem Ghazal. Among those who survive this brutal military campaign, disability and trauma will be prevalent, and the need for services and support will be unprecedented in scale and reach.

The violence unfolding upon Palestinian people—primarily but not exclusively in Gaza—has spurred public outrage around the world. Across all continents, ordinary people, students, workers unions, human rights movements and even governments are mobilized to protest, demanding an immediate ceasefire and justice.

As a human rights movement, the disability rights community cannot remain silent. The unfolding tragedy calls for leadership, initiative, and action by all sectors of our community; from the grassroots to regional and international organizations, as well as those tasked with UN mandates to ensure that our rights are respected. Public statements are not enough.

For decades, we have fought to bring the rights of persons with disabilities into the fold of broader movements for human rights, building bridges and a common cause for social justice. Now is when that work really matters, when those most impacted by armed conflict, forced displacement, and war crimes need our collective action and solidarity to survive.

We must take lessons from students around the world, including those with disabilities, who are once again leading the way, expressing solidarity with direct action, demanding a ceasefire and an end to their institutions’ financial and academic ties with those responsible for the destruction of Gaza and the suffering of its people. Some disability activists are amplifying Palestinian social media messages by making them accessible for persons with disabilities, and fundraising to buy eSims for people in Gaza. These initiatives are examples to be highlighted and replicated across the disability rights movement.

With the Israeli army entering Rafah and further escalating the horror, we call on disability rights leaders, activists, experts, researchers, and all our institutions to actively join global efforts to end the war against the Palestinian people, by:

  • Demanding an immediate and permanent ceasefire and joining actions of solidarity with the people of Gaza.

  • Amplifying the voices of Palestinians with disabilities and their demands in human rights spaces and mechanisms.

  • Resourcing efforts to support people in Gaza, including those with disabilities.

  • Demanding accountability for war crimes and crimes against humanity, by documenting the situation of people with disabilities in Gaza and the West Bank, and supporting the work of the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, and other multilateral bodies.

  • Supporting urgent and immediate disability-inclusive humanitarian action in Gaza.

Collectively, we have a duty to shed light on the plight of Palestinians with disabilities, and demand that those responsible for crimes against them are held accountable. The human toll and magnitude of the atrocities being committed in Gaza does not leave room for indifference.

After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, our community mobilized to advocate for people with disabilities in Ukraine and demanded that those responsible for abuses be held accountable. Today, as Palestinians with disabilities struggle to survive this horrific military campaign, we expect the same commitment. Anything less is unacceptable.

About us

We are a collective of human rights activists. We are part of the disability rights community. We are united by how we feel about the unspeakable atrocities Israel is committing against Palestinians in Gaza. As members of the disability rights community, we are deeply worried about the dire situation of Palestinians with disabilities, whose lives depend on an immediate ceasefire, and urgent action to dismantle the blockade imposed by Israel on all access points to Gaza. And we believe that our global disability community is not doing enough. If you feel the same way, join us.
