(TJV NEWS) Raz Ben Ami, a 57-year-old German-Israeli hostage, has initiated legal proceedings against the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), alleging the organization’s abandonment of its responsibility toward Israeli hostages held captive by Hamas.
The lawsuit underscores a historical pattern of perceived inhumanity by the ICRC toward Jews and points to the rejection of numerous appeals from Ben Ami’s family to send essential medication for her reported battle against brain tumors during her 54-day captivity. Tragically, while Ben Ami was eventually released, her husband Ohad remains captive, having been abducted with her from Kibbutz Be’eri.

In light of these allegations, the legal action seeks accountability from the ICRC for its perceived failure to uphold its humanitarian obligations and responsibilities towards Israeli hostages held in captivity. The broader implications of this case echo concerns about the impartiality and efficacy of international humanitarian organizations in addressing crises and safeguarding the well-being of those affected.
